Update on Coronavirus and UoB programmes in China:

We have taken the decision to postpone The Tiger Economy programme to ensure the health and safety of all students and staff. We plan to run the programme in summer 2021. If you applied this year and would like to apply for the 2021 programme, we will make an effort to give you some priority.
