On a recent visit to China the Vice-Chancellor of the University, Professor Bob Cryan, was able to meet with Paul Turner NCUK's Director for the Asia-Pacific Region, based in Beijing.

Paul graduated from Huddersfield in 1984 with a degree in Textile Marketing.  Instead of putting his marketing skills to direct use in a UK company he decided to see what the Far East had to offer. He was particularly attracted to China as a result of attending lectures at Huddersfield when a perspicacious speaker had predicted the rise of the country as a major global industrial player, which was particularly impressive given that China had at that time only recently opened up to the West.

He is glad he took a chance on the Far East as he has enjoyed immensely living in places such as Hong Kong, Tokyo, and most of all in China were he has spent much of the last twenty years. Paul has worked in various roles in the fields of education marketing, Sino-foreign exchanges and cultural relations for the British and Canadian Embassies in Beijing and the British Council and also headed up VSO’s China Country Programme. He is now able to combine the marketing and business skills that he learned in Huddersfield with the Mandarin language he has painstakingly acquired in his role as Asia Pacific Director of NCUK. NCUK provides bridging programmes for international students who wish to study in NCUK’s owner universities. In some respects Paul has come ‘full circle’ as one of the 11 founding universities and owners of NCUK is the University of Huddersfield. He was therefore very pleased to be able to meet Professor Cryan and his colleagues at the Sino-British College in Shanghai.

Professor Cryan said: "China is a key emerging economy and it's really rewarding to see one of our graduates playing an important senior role out here. Paul and I were actually students at University of Huddersfield at the same time, so it's great to meet up with him in China and exchange notes. I was particularly impressed with Paul's fluent command of the Chinese language"
