We are delighted to announce that a prestigious new Sino-British Culture and Language Forum is to be held in Beijing. This is a unique opportunity for Oxbridge Beijing alumni and members of the elite China Chevening Alumni Association (“CCAA”) to get together, exchange ideas, and learn from each others’ experiences. The Form is funded by the Chevening Fund under the administration of the British Embassy, Beijing, which is part of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office of the UK Government.

The event organisers are looking for eight speakers (four each from OCCB and OCCB, respectively) to give a short speech on a topic of their choice relating to Sino-British culture and language. Interested parties should contact Henry Chan at henry@newedu360.com. For those members who would like to come to the Forum but do not want to speak, please email Chinachevening@163.com, so that we know how many people to expect. The Forum will be followed by a dinner.
