University College Cork Has Signed Two New Partnerships With Chinese Universities
The partnerships will see significant investment for Cork as Chinese students live and study in the city.
Tánaiste Simon Coveney oversaw the agreement in Shanghai as part of his Saint Patrick's Day trade mission to China.
Students from Cork will also have greater opportunities to live and study in China under the new deals with Shanghai University and East China University.
A delegation from the Chinese universities will visit Cork next month.
Speaking to RedFM News from Shanghai the Tanaiste says it's particularly satisfying to see education links with Cork going from strength to strength.
