Welcome to the Confucius Institute
The Confucius Institute at UNSW was established in 2009 to promote and support important and innovative language, cultural and research collaborations between UNSW, our partner Shanghai Jiao Tong University, and the Confucius Institute Headquarters (Hanban) in Beijing. Our key focus is to enhance Australia's knowledge of China through support for projects aimed at deepening understanding amongst the business, academic, professional and broader community of relevant contemporary issues. The Confucius Institute works across UNSW faculties to encourage research and collaboration, student and academic exchanges, and enhance Chinese language capacity to build cohorts of students and researchers with a deeper knowledge of China.
