Social care students from the University of Wolverhampton have been on a trip of a lifetime to China.
The visit enabled the 17 students to learn about and experience a range of social care settings in China.
The students are on Social Care, Public Health, Social Work and Health and Psychology courses and were hosted by Beijing Union University (BUU).
They were also able to find out more about Chinese culture from an historical and contemporary context and the legal and policy context of social care in China compared with the UK.
The students also visited sites including the Great Wall of China, Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City.
Dr Martin Partridge, Senior Lecturer in Social Care, said: “This study tour to Beijing was very successful. Beijing Union University (BUU) was our host University where students experienced mixing with Chinese students while staying in student accommodation.
“Students were able to gain an understanding of the culture while learning about many aspects of social care and health. Both the lectures and the tour visits were enjoyed by all and evening activities such as KTV-karaoke was a chance to relax and have a bit of fun.”
