South West College (SWC) recently hosted a number of staff and students from its partner College, Xiangyang Vocational and Technical College, China, which provides full-time and multidisciplinary higher vocational education.

The trip follows the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding by both Colleges in December 2016, the first step in paving the way for the delivery of a range of collaborations, including the development of curriculum and course design. During their visit to Counties Tyrone and Fermanagh, the Chinese delegates explored the South West College’s main campuses in Enniskillen, Omagh and Dungannon, where they engaged with management and Higher education staff and students, as well as enjoying many visitor experiences along the way including; Belleek Pottery, Giant’s Causeway, Derry/Londonderry City Walking Tour, Marble Arch Caves, Titanic Belfast and Lissan House.
