Abertay University has entered into an agreement with two Chinese universities which will enable students to benefit from Scottish expertise in sports science and accounting and finance.

A memorandum of agreement was signed with Guangzhou Sport University that will see qualifying Chinese students progress to year three of Abertay's BSc (Hons) Sport and Exercise, BSc (Hons) Sport and Exercise Science, BA (Hons) Sport and Management and BSc (Hons) Physical Activity and Health degrees.

A similar agreement was made with Yang-En University in Quanzhou that will enable students to come to Abertay in Dundee to complete their third or fourth year studies.

Principal Nigel Seaton said: "We are delighted to have signed these two MoA agreements which further strengthen our links to China and these important partner universities."

"Our accounting and finance and sports courses provide students with highly-regarded industry-relevant qualifications, offering the ideal preparation for the world of work."

Earlier this year, Abertay signed an agreement with Beijing-based Perfect World Education, which will see a new Executive Professional Masters in Games Development delivered in China, while also exploring a range of future academic, research and business collaborations.
