We & the World
Uniting the best of Chinese and Western traditions, BGD is committed to nurturing responsible global citizens with international talents and vision to compete at the highest level.
Since its establishment 14 years ago, BGD has been committed to academic excellence and has adhered to the highest ethical standards. We offer 22 degree programmes in Art & Design, Business, Engineering and Humanities. All our programmes include internships with employers and thus are relevant to careers. Many programmes offer opportunities for study abroad with our partner universities. To prepare students for such an international experience, many programme offer modules in English as well as Chinese.
In partnership with Technological University Dublin (TU Dublin) and other international universities, BGD has offered its teachers unparalleled professional development opportunities. These teachers, assisted by visiting teachers from many countries, provide the best of international practice and will strive to ensure every student realizes his or her academic potent. The teaching at BGD is student-centred, designed to suit individual learner needs. BGD deploys research-based pedagogies and a wide array of international resources to create an enriching, success-oriented environment for all our students.
Three of our programmes are offered in collaboration with Technological University Dublin (TU Dublin) and they offer students the opportunity to earn double degrees, one Chinese and one European. To avail of this opportunity, students must spend at least one year in Dublin.
Gengdan Institute offers various study programmes for inbound international students, such as winter or summer short courses, theme workshops, international conferences, and 3+1 or 2+2 double degree.
Gengdan Institute has outstanding university partners around the world and we welcome their students to our campus as individual long stay or short stay students. We are also delighted to welcome a number of university tours from partners each year and we facilitate them by introducing them to Chinese experts and Chinese industry. Some of our students go abroad to programmes offered by our partners as advanced entry or 2+2 students on a full fee paying basis.
Gengdan Institute has launched an exchange programmes with a number of partners in Europe and North America. Students from partner universities can come on a reciprocal basis to study at BGD for a semester or a full year. Students who wish to match their home curriculum in order to achieve specific credits will be facilitated where possible. Some visiting students may wish to develop an in-depth knowledge of Chinese culture, language and the economy and the university has prepared a set of 12 modules drawing on the resources of all schools which will be delivered through English for these students.
