Following a successful visit to the University of Yangzhou, China, by Julie Jomeen, Dean of Faculty of Health Sciences and Joanna Qui, in the Academic Partnerships Office, the Universities of Hull and Yangzhou have been successful in an application to deliver a sino-foreign joint educational program for Chinese student nurses. The Chinese Ministry of Education has officially recognised the international partnership, which means we can now start to develop a collaborative degree program.
Colleagues from across the University will begin to operationalise this new and innovative educational strategy, which will see colleagues from the School of Health and Social Work travelling abroad to teach in China.
Professor Julie Jomeen said: ‘This is a solid first step in our ambitions to become part of the global provision of nurse education and to influence both the profession and the development of the nursing workforce beyond the UK. It will also offer opportunities for colleagues to experience teaching in an international context and open doors for other collaborations, including research – it is immensely exciting.’
