More than 160 graduate students newly arrived at UCL from China attended a party in the North Cloister, representing 60 Chinese universities and all UCL faculties, on 3 October 2008.

The event was hosted by Professor Xiao Guo, UCL Pro-Provost for China, Hong Kong & Macau, and the special guests on this occasion were: Minister Counsellor Tian Xiaogang, Head of the Education Section at the Chinese Embassy (London); Ms Sarah Wu, the Director General of the Hong Kong Economic & Trade Delegation (London); and  Professor Michael Worton, UCL Vice-Provost (Academic & International).

Professor Guo and his guests spent much of the evening talking with individuals and groups of students. In addition, a number of UCL organisations were also on hand to give advice and information about life at UCL: UCL Chinese Students & Scholars Association, UCL Union Chinese Society, UCL Careers and UCL Alumni Relations.

There are more than 1,300 Chinese students at UCL, most of whom are studying at the postgraduate level, making them the largest cohort of non-UK students at UCL.
