Cambridge and Beijing

The University values its relationship with China, recognising our shared past and an exciting future.

Today, Chinese students form the largest group from a single country outside the UK at Cambridge. There are more than 680 alumni in Beijing alone. There are 19 officially recognised alumni groups in the country, of which three are based in the capital city, including the Oxford and Cambridge Club of Beijing. Cambridge alumni from China include author Louis Cha (St John’s 2005), athlete Deng Yaping (Jesus 2002), Nobel Laureate Roger Tsien (Churchill 1972), and, of course, renowned poet Xu Zhimo (King’s 1921).

In China, Cambridge academics are engaged in a broad range of collaborations with Chinese colleagues, in areas as diverse as food security, autism, labour economics, and the origins of agriculture. A recent example is China SCORE, a large-scale study to investigate Autism Spectrum Conditions in partnership with researchers at the China Disabled Persons Federation (CDPF), Peking University (PKU) and the University of Hong Kong.

The Cambridge Judge Business School runs the China Executive Leadership Programme and maintains links with Chinese corporate and government clients.

The Cambridge China Library is a landmark project from Cambridge University Press, comprising a series of new English translations of books by Chinese scholars that have not previously been available in the West.
