HBU-UCLan School of Media, Communications & Creative Industries is a partnership between Hebei University in China and the University of Central Lancashire in Preston UK. It was established in 2014 and now has 800 students studying for UCLan validated degrees. This is an exciting period for the School as it looks forward to move into new purpose designed and built accommodation, together with up to date facilities, for September 2019. 

The School is looking to recruit Lecturers in EFL to teach on the Foundation Year programme. This is an outstanding and quite unique opportunity to work as part of a team out in China, to develop a high quality creative industries facility on a large modern campus at Hebei University.

The School has joint non-independent status and has approval from the Chinese Ministry of Education. We are now looking towards the second phase of the partnership and recently received approval from the MOE to start the development of Masters level provision. We are also in discussions with relevant professional sectors in Hebei Province looking towards the establishment of research and innovation centres in key areas such as digital content and cultural heritage. This presents an exciting opportunity for the successful applicant to build a professional profile within an unique cross cultural and dynamic environment. 

Hebei University (HBU) is located in the historic city of Baoding, approximately 36 minutes by the new fast train, from Beijing. The city is becoming a commuter base for Beijing and Hebei Province has a total population of over 77 million people.
