The Victoria Business Confucius Institute (VBCI) offers Chinese-language, business and cultural workshops, and facilitates China-focused scholarships and tours. We work with business, government, industry and educational and community partners to foster cultural understanding between Australian and Chinese people.

There are over 500 Confucius Institutes globally; each is supported by their cooperating university in China. In co-operation with local affiliate colleges and universities around the world, the aims of Confucius Institutes are to promote Chinese language and culture and facilitate cultural exchange. The VBCI brings a unique business focus that complements other Confucius Institutes in Melbourne.

The VBCI is based at VU’s City Flinders Campus.


VBCI publishes monthly newsletters to inform you of forthcoming events, Mandarin workshops, Mandarin learning tips, and, most importantly, doing business in China highlights of the month. If you would like to keep up with the trends and are looking to expand your knowledge, this is a newsletter you don’t want to miss!
