This important link includes the training of research students at the New Forest Campus as well as hosting the visits of postgraduate scholars from Beijing. WIT has had a series of graduate students from China since its foundation, many of whom finished PhD degrees and are now in positions of responsibility in academia and industry. This new link will reinforce the collaboration that WIT has already had with colleagues from China.
