Photos featuring life at Tsinghua attract London locals
Last week, London had a glimpse of what life is like at Tsinghua, thanks to the photograph exhibition that the Tsinghua Global Communication Office put on, together with the Confucius Institute for Business London (CIBL). Over fifty photos were selected to present Tsinghua and promote the university on a global stage.
Titled “Where History Meets the Future: Opportunities from Tsinghua, China”, the exhibition follows up the most recent developments by Tsinghua, including Tsinghua Southeast Asia Center, China-Italy Design Innovation Hub, Tsinghua-Berkeley Shenzhen Institute, Global Innovation eXchange (GIX) Institute, Schwarzman College, Asian Universities Alliance (AUA), Tsinghua University Art Museum as well as the beautiful scenery and colorful life on campus.
“On behalf of the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in UK, I would like to share our warmest welcome to Tsinghua’s visit and your effort in introducing one of the most prestigious universities in China. As China and UK communicate and cooperate more closely these days, it is important that people of the two countries know and understand each other,” said Ruan Shao, Secretary of the Education Section of the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in UK.
“The photos displayed are fantastic. I just started to learn Chinese, because I would like to know more about Chinese opera. After seeing this exhibition, I am even more looking forward to my language learning experience ahead,” said Phoebe Haines, an Opera singer and Cambridge University alumna.
