Additionally, the department has many links with architects, developers and engineers, especially those approved by the Royal Institute of British Architects and well-established practices in Shanghai, Suzhou and the wider Jiangsu Province as well as good contacts in the UK and Europe.

We have a professional studies advisor monitoring work experience, compiling contacts and validating professional networks.
