College welcome for Chinese academic visitors

Swansea University’s College of Human and Health Sciences has been playing host to two international visitors from its partner institution in China.

Nurse lecturers Xiao Shuang and Fang Ji from Chongqing Medical University have embarked on a packed, six week programme of activities at the College of Human and Health Sciences.

After beginning their visit with a tour of the Swansea University Campus, Xiao Shuang and Fang Ji spent time with students and lecturers from the College, learning about UK healthcare settings, how nursing is taught in the UK and participating in a range of lectures from manual handling to trauma and fractures.  They also visited several of the hospitals within the Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board.

Cecilia Wu, International Officer for the College of Human and Health Sciences said: “It is their first time in the UK and they love it!  They now plan to visit other parts of the UK including Scotland and Ireland and will fit in some shopping in Bicester Designer Outlet in Oxfordshire.”
