Today saw the official launch of Cambridge Education Group’s first two training centres in China.


The centres, both based in Shanghai, are designed to help Chinese national students, aged 15-16, prepare for an international education in the UK or US.

The centre in Jinshan offers an academic-focussed British or American curriculum and in Minhang the curriculum specialises in the Arts. Students complete a two-year programme, taught in English, and then have the opportunity to progress to a CATS College in the UK or US or Cambridge School of Visual and Performing Arts to complete their year 12 studies in preparation for entry to a UK or US university. 

The event, held at Peninsula Hotel Shanghai, was hosted by CEG and the centres’ founders Sam Huang and Joe Chen. Over 130 delegates, from the local community and education sector attended including the British Consulate, China-Britain Business Council and UK university representatives.
