RNCM Recognised by Department for International Trade

The RNCM has been recognised by the Department for International Trade for its strong educational links in China.

Held at The Lowry, Salford Quays, on Friday 3 February, The Greater China Awards were open to any companies or organisations in the North West of England which have made a significant contribution to developing business or collaborative innovation/partnership with mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau, and/or Taiwan during 2016.

Last year, the RNCM announced two new educational partnerships in China – with Peking University Academy of Opera and Zhejiang Conservatory of Music (pictured above) – both of which highlight the College’s continued commitment to grow its activities in China through enhanced student and staff mobility, collaborative performance projects, graduate placements and employment opportunities and continuing professional development for young teachers.

RNCM Principal, Professor Linda Merrick, who attended the ceremony said: ‘This is a fantastic achievement for the RNCM. We are constantly looking for exciting opportunities to enhance the experience we offer to both staff and students, and our professional partners are integral to ensuring this is possible. We pride ourselves on giving students at undergraduate and postgraduate level real world experience during their studies, both in the UK and internationally, and it is wonderful to know that our developing links with China have been recognised by the Department for International Trade.’

Last week’s acknowledgement follows the RNCM’s recent success at the Times Higher Education Awards where the College won the Outstanding International Student Strategy category for its Read with the World project.
