New UoB agreement with the China Scholarship Council

The University of Bristol has just finalised a new agreement with the China Scholarship Council (CSC) for 20 PhD students per year for the next 5 years. This is great news, and Bristol will benefit greatly from this new initiative!

Wei joining the FRG from Xi’an Jiaotong University

Wei, a China Scholarship Council exchange student, will spend one year in Bristol.  She follows in the footsteps of Jiangtao (Feng), also from the laboratories of prof Yan, who spent a year in Bristol in 2011.


Close interaction and collaboration already exists between the Yan and Faul groups, with a number of publications generated in the area of oligo(aniline)-based nanomaterials (and more to come soon!).  Welcome to Bristol!
