Welcome to the official website for The New Zealand Centre at Peking University. The Centre was established in 2007 as a collaborative project between Peking University and the University of Auckland. Since 2014, all eight of New Zealand's universities are represented in the project of high-level engagement with Peking University across a broad range of departments and faculties (click here for more information). New Zealand government agencies Education New Zealand, the Ministry for Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE), and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) are also key stakeholders in the project. The Centre is charged with the tasks of raising the profile of New Zealand at China's leading tertiary education institution, enhancing academic and cultural exchange between China and New Zealand, and providing a unique venue to increase understanding between New Zealanders and Chinese alike. 2017 marks the 10th anniversary year for the New Zealand Centre at Peking University.
