About us

The Confucius Institute offers a range of Chinese language courses for different purposes, from Chinese courses for travel and leisure, to more intensive (fast-track) courses. All courses lead up to the official HSK Chinese Proficiency exams. For those looking for an accredited course, we offer the university level Certificate of Higher Education in Chinese as a part-time two year course.
