The High School Affiliated to Renmin University of China in Beijing and the British Council School in Madrid have been partner schools since 2007 and four groups of students from Beijing have stayed with school families here on annual visits. In 2008 a group of British Council School students stayed with Chinese families in Beijing. The High School Affiliated to Renmin University of China as widely recognised as one of Asia’s leading schools. 

In January 2011 eleven students from the High School Affiliated to Renmin University of China, accompanied by their teacher, Mrs. Du Fang, visited Spain. The IE University Admissions office invited the group to spend a day in Segovia and to visit the campus. 

The group were given an introductory talk and a tour of the academic facilities on campus and were introduced to two Chinese undergraduate students from Shanghai. IE University has links with the Renmin University of China, which has one of Asia’s leading economics faculties. 

An expert guide explained the many fascinating historical features of the building, the main part of which dates from the 15th century. After a tour of the skilfully refurbished lecture rooms and the state of the art radio and tv studios the visitors had a sneak look at the students’ residence and had time for lunch before heading back to Madrid. 

Timothy Jones, a senior manager at the British Council School who coordinated the Chinese visitors’ tour, commented: “This has been a great experience for our guests. The IE university is special not only because of its historic setting, but also because of its flexible, multidisciplinary programme rooted in a spirit of internationalism and entrepreneurship. A memorable day for our young guests from Beijing.”
