The University of Birmingham is proud of its long history of engagement with China. We welcomed our first students from China in 1907 and since then we have provided education for more than 7000 Chinese scholars, including Li Si Guang who studied with us for a BSc (1913-1917), an MSc (1918) and was awarded a doctorate in 1931.
