Message from the Provost Paul Fanning

Welcome to BDIC!

At BDIC, UCD and BJUT share teaching of the curriculum, with UCD teaching approximately 55% of all modules. Our teaching model is a face to face model with up to 30 UCD academics traveling to Beijing each year for a teaching semester.

All core curriculum modules, delivered by both UCD and BJUT staff, are taught through English. Our graduates are thus truly multilingual. To achieve this, our degree programmes include specialised English language learning in the area of ‘English for Academic Purposes’. This bespoke English language programme ensures students meet the UCD English language requirement by the end of year two – this standard also satisfies UCD’s, and many other international universities’, Masters entry requirement.

All students enjoy the opportunity of short or long stay study periods in Dublin as well as exposure to Irish cultural events organised on campus at BJUT.
