China - English for Business Programme
In October 2020, Edinburgh College began an exciting new five-year partnership with Hainan University in China teaching English for Business to students at the Hainan University College of Foreign Studies.
The English for Business course is designed to provide Hainan University students with greater fluency and confidence in English in business settings, and includes preparation for Cambridge English qualifications in Business English. Edinburgh College courses are embedded in the four-year undergraduate programme, giving enhanced career opportunities for students on graduation. The course is delivered using a blended learning model, with course modules delivered both online, and face-to-face in Hainan.
Edinburgh College Principal Audrey Cumberford said: “We’re honoured to enter into this prestigious partnership with Hainan University, and to be teaching a very dedicated and committed group of students. This partnership is testament to Edinburgh College’s ability to provide high-quality training around the world, and empower students to achieve even greater success in their future careers with an international education.”
The partnership saw Edinburgh College nominated for the Educational Partnership of the Year award for the 2021 China-Scotland Business Awards.
