New Summer School collaboration for St Edmund’s Global Programmes.


St Edmund’s College was delighted to welcome an academic delegation on Wednesday 5 June from Xidian University, X’ian to discuss a new programme as part of the St. Edmund’s Global Programmes. Xidian University is one of the leading universities for Telecommunications Engineering and Computer Science and Technology and will be sending its first cohort of students this summer from 4 – 17 August.

St Edmund’s Global Programmes will deliver a Telecommunications Engineering, Computer Science and AI focused cohort alongside the existing Materials Science cohort this summer. Both programmes will continue to include discussion based Cultural Understanding in English modules and presentations to develop confidence in speaking and presenting in English.

St Edmund’s College representatives led by Katharine Cantell (Development Office) along with education partners BlueBridge Education discussed collaboration opportunities for their top students who may be interested in future postgraduate and research studies in Cambridge. Xidian University has a joint Bachelor/Master’s degree programme in Telecommunications Engineering with Heriot Watt University.

St. Edmund’s alumnus and BlueBridge Education Managing Director Stewart Eru said:

“ St. Edmund’s Global Programmes continues to gather momentum with growing interest from international universities.  We look forward this summer to introducing a variety of the
St. Edmund’s academic community who really enrich the experiences for our international guests.”
