Flinders University and Port Power kicking goals in China
Flinders University is proud to announce its sponsorship of this Sunday’s historic AFL football fixture in China between Port Adelaide and the Gold Coast.
Flinders Vice-Chancellor Professor Colin Stirling says that this is a significant opportunity to further strengthen economic, cultural and social ties between South Australia and China - the State’s largest trading partner.
“Education is an important economic driver, generating jobs and investment, and it is also a great enabler for individuals,” he adds.
Flinders University is exceptionally positioned to contribute to the burgeoning relationship between South Australia and China through its growing research and education connections.
“As Australia’s number one university for student support, according to the 2016 International Student Barometer (ISB); home to the current Australian University Teacher of the Year; and with 90% of our research rated as at or above world standard by Excellence in Research Australia, we have much to offer Chinese students who seek a world-class education,” Professor Stirling says.
“Flinders University is committed to changing lives and changing the world, and we’re immensely proud to be a supporter of this historic match,” Professor Stirling adds.
