The Oxford Chinese Economy Programme


About St Edmund Hall

St Edmund Hall is one of the constituent colleges of the University of Oxford. Long before any colleges came into existence at Oxford, the scholars lived and were taught in small educational communities known as halls, each organised and ruled by a Master of Arts. Of these original communities, only St Edmund Hall through accidents of history still survives, now as a full College of the University. 



As one of the oldest colleges in the University of Oxford, St Edmund Hall aimed to further its various China development projects. The Oxford Chinese Economy Programme (OXCEP) was a task force established at St Edmund Hall in May 2013 to spearhead and implement such projects, including the related forums and symposiums, distinguished speaker lectures, short courses, visiting fellowships and visiting studentships at the Hall.
