Established in 2003 during China’s first education reform and renamed as Sino-Campus International Education and Technology Limited (Sino-Campus) in 2012 to 'raise the profile of internationalization and enterprise' within educational institutions. Sino-Campus is currently working collaboratively with a wide range of partners including national and international Higher and Further Education institutions, businesses and policy-makers at national and local government, with on-going research to continuously improve our services.
ELITE Innovation College Cambridge was born during the pandemic with a mission to lead and push innovation. ELITE carries impact and significant connotation. ELITE is an acronym of e-learning of innovation, technology and entrepreneurship within an O2O Innovation University in the global higher education. Almost all the universities and colleges are currently delivering courses online based upon the MOOC experiences since the outbreak of Covid-19. Our intention of establishment of ELITE O2O (online and offline) Innovative Education Platform is an exploration of an innovative education pedagogy of integrating the delivery of programmes, knowledge, contents and education ethos with a global vision embedded in the teaching and learning strategy built into the technological system of O2O innovation university. The College, in many respects, is regarded as a globally-connected innovative and entrepreneurial university. With our forward-looking global vision and strong features of our programmes we are well positioned in the global higher education in the 21st century.
“As a platform for cross-border education and an advocate of Sino-foreign cooperation in running schools, our advantages are very prominent, providing a bridge for universities between China and the UK to promote the strong alliance of well-known universities in China and the UK. It is conducive to the introduction of high-quality foreign educational resources, cultivating high-tech talents, realizing the optimal allocation of education, and further implementing the internationalization of Chinese higher education by Sino-foreign cooperation in running schools. There are more than 3,000 universities in China while it has only over 100 universities in the UK. For China, the resources of British institutions are always scarce”. Mr. Tiger Wang, Founder and CEO of Sino-Campus, Beijing, pointed out.
“Our ELITE College is a non-traditional, innovative and entrepreneurial one born during the pandemic with a strong mission of leading innovation and promoting innovation. Without comprising the quality of education and enhancing students journey, it reframes the Oxbridge model and builds O2O Innovation University. At the same time, we work together by sharing our global educational resources with Sino-Campus, maintaining mechanism innovation, system innovation, model innovation, and management innovation for the contribution to Sino-foreign cooperation in running schools." Professor Li Hua expressed in his remarks at the online signing ceremony.
