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, with the main office at the Chinese Hanban Institute. 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.
