Have your say

A GROUP of Chinese architecture students were given a taste of life at the University of Portsmouth.

The visit was organised by the British Council as part of a collaboration between universities in China and the UK.

Head of the school of architecture Pam Cole said: ‘The students found their visit to Portsmouth amazing and we found them inspiring.

‘We look forward to collaborating with our new colleagues from China on future global projects and workshops, so that we can continue to provide fantastic international opportunities for academic staff and students.’

Six students from institutions across China spent a week at the university. They were reunited with Portsmouth students who they worked with in China on the first part of the exchange, an urban regeneration project, in Harbin, Heilongjiang Province in September.

The students, Zhang Yifan, Hong Fenghuan, Huang Chen, Li Qiang, Chen Yishan and Li Penying took part in a range of activities in the school.
