Classes have been organised for 46 students at the University’s Chinese partner institutions.
They will be run by six members of staff from the University’s Centre for Language and Communication Training throughout July and August.
As well as an intensive academic programme to boost English language skills, the course includes social networking opportunities and the chance to build relationships in Wolverhampton ahead of their studies.
The course is taking place in Shenzhen and in Lanzhou at the University’s partner institutions Shenzhen Polytechnic and Lanzhou University of Finance and Economics (LZUFE).
Daphne Laing, Head of the Centre, which is part of the School of Law, Social Sciences and Communications, travelled to Lanzhou to cement the relationship there.
She said: “It is the first time we have worked with LZUFE and run a course like this. We are very pleased to be able to offer students the chance to improve their skills and find out more about life at the University of Wolverhampton.
“This will help strengthen our relationships with partner institutions and is a great opportunity for the students.”
An additional course is also running in the UK for up to 60 students in Wolverhampton.
