采访原文:

主持人:腾讯的网友大家好,欢迎大家来到腾讯的访谈间,坐在我身边的这位是英国拉夫堡大学国际办公室主任Charlie。你好Charlie,可以跟腾讯的网友打个招呼吗?

Charlie: Hi,My name is Charlie Carter, and I am the Director of the International Office at Loughborough University.

Loughborough University is one of the highest-ranking universities in the UK with a campus in the centre of the UK and a campus in London.

好的。我是Charlie Carter. 我是英国拉夫堡大学的国际办公室主任。拉夫堡大学是英国排名最高的大学之一,在英国中部和伦敦各有一个校区。

主持人:Congratulations on your winning this “Tencent Award for Favorite UK University among Chinese Families”. And could you please introduce your institute firstly?

恭喜您获得“腾讯中国家庭青睐的英国大学奖项”,可以介绍一下拉夫堡大学吗?

中国家庭青睐的英国大学奖项.jpg

Charlie: Loughborough University has been educating students in the UK for over one hundred years and we're really pleased to win this award

in China. In the UK we have won many awards - we're top ten in all the league tables in the UK, have a TEF Gold Award for our teaching, we are Top10 in England for research intensity and number one for the best student experience. We're very well-known in the UK.

It seems now we are also now well-known in China and are delighted to receive this award, as a consequence. We have a large international community at Loughborough,

and the Chinese students are very important and big part of that community.

好。拉夫堡大学在英国已经有100多年的历史,我们很高兴在中国赢得这个奖项。在英国我们已经非常幸运的赢得了很多奖项,我们在英国的所有排行榜中均排名前十。我们获得了教学质量金奖,科研成就排名全英前十,学生体验获得全英第一名。我们在英国非常有名。

现在,我们在中国也很有名,我们很高兴因此获得这个奖项,因为我们有一个非常大的国际学生群体,中国学生是这个群体非常重要的一部分。

主持人:And as we know, education in all areas have been developing very fast recently. And could you please share us and achievement of your institution and especially in China.

现在教育的各个领域发展都很快,可以跟我们分享一下您所在的大学取得的成就,尤其是在中国取得的成就?

Charlie: Loughborough University is a well-known campus university. It was the first university of technology in the UK. In China, it's quite normal for a university to have a large campus. In the UK, that's not so normal. We have a large campus and we are well-known for subjects such as engineering, business, communication and media studies, social sciences. I think you're aware of that side of things.

The good thing about Loughborough is that because of our strong engineering and business background, it means that we always apply our studies to the real world.

Therefore, Loughborough University is very well known for the employability of our students. We ensure our students not only get a good education, but they also find a good job afterwards.

拉夫堡大学是一所以校园占地面积著称的大学,也是英国第一所技术大学。在中国大学通常有很大的校园,而在英国,拥有大面积的校园是一件很不寻常的事情。我们是一个以工程,商业,通讯和媒体研究等学科闻名的大校园。我想你已经意识到了这点。我认为拉夫堡的优势在于,我们拥有工程和商业背景,因此知道如何在现实世界中应用我们的研究。拉夫堡大学还以其毕业生的就业能力而闻名,学生们在拉夫堡大学不只能接受良好的教育,更能在毕业之后找到一份好工作。

主持人: What is the biggest gain for your university in the year of twenty eighteen?

在28年里大学的最大收获是什么?

Charlie: I think we have done really well. We offer a strong academic education for our students, and an excellent university experience. Our students come in with high grades and leave with excellent Degree awards.

我认为在提供高质量的教育方面我们做的非常好。我们的学生来拉夫堡时都有着优异的成绩,毕业时,往往也能以优秀的成绩获得学位。

主持人:Can you tell us some details for different subjects?

可以举例介绍一下拉夫堡大学的优势学科吗?

Charlie: We have many subjects, let’s consider business. We have a lot of people coming in with triple As for our Business School and leaving with Firsts or 2:1s. But aside from the education, they also get involved outside of studies. Loughborough University is really well known for sports. It's the number one sports university in the world. People get involved outside of their education in many things.

We have the biggest careers fair of any UK university and all our undergraduate students get the option of spending one year working in industry in addition to their studies.

Even though we're not a big city like Manchester or Birmingham, more employers want to meet our students on campus than any other university. We are very pleased about that side of things. In two thousand eighteen, we've obviously got our top five or ten ranking in all national university league tables. What we're looking to do now is increase our international QS ranking by developing many more international research partnerships with Chinese universities, as well as others, from all around the world.

好的,比如我们的商科,很多学生以全A的成绩来到拉夫堡,毕业时获得一等或2:1学位离开。拉夫堡大学还以体育运动而闻名。我们是体育排名第一的大学。学生们通常除了参加学术课程之外,还会参与很多运动。我们拥有英国大学中最大的职业招聘会,除了学习之外,我们所有的本科学生都可以选择在某个特定行业工作一年。

尽管我们不是像曼彻斯特,伯明翰这样的大城市,但雇主却在我们学校雇佣了最多的毕业生。对这方面的成就我们感到非常高兴。在2018年,显然我们已经获得了全英前十的排名。此外,我们希望通过与中国大学以及世界各地的其他大学建立更多的国际研究合作伙伴关系来提高我们的QS世界排名。

主持人: In which city maybe?

会在哪些城市展开合作?

Charlie: We already work with Tsinghua, we already work with Tongji, we already work with Shanghai Jiao Tong university. We work with many, many different university partners in China, and we also work with some excellent private sector partners such as Golden Arrow, one of our top international recruitment partners here, and we've been working with GA for twenty years.

I think when we work with our partners in China, the most important thing for us is it's not just business. They're also friends and these are the guys that represent Loughborough in China. And we like working with our friends here.

我们已经与清华大学,同济大学,上海交通大学等许多不同的中国大学建立了合作。我们还与一些优秀的私营企业合作,比如金矢集团,是我们在中国最大的合作伙伴之一,我们已经与金矢合作了20年。

我认为,当我们与中国的合作伙伴合作时,对我们来说最重要的不仅仅是业务。他们也是朋友,是拉夫堡在中国的代表。我们想在这里和我们的朋友一起工作。

主持人:And how do you perceive the current education market?

您对当前的教育市场怎么看?

Charlie:I think it's quite tough. I mean if you're a Chinese student, you've got lots of opportunities.

You can obviously study at excellent universities in China or you can study excellent universities in the UK or Australia or the US.

I think the most important thing is that you look at three areas: 1. your education, that is to say the academic standard of education you will receive, 2. the student experience and the people that you will meet, and 3. the soft skills you get above your education which of course improves your employability. If you're going to invest

twenty thousand pounds in tuition fees and another twenty thousand pounds to live in the UK, it is a big investment in your future.

The most important thing is that you get a strong return on your investment. Also, your education will set you up with friendships and a career for life afterwards.

这是个竞争很激烈的市场。如果你是一名中国学生,你有很多机会。你可以在中国的一些优秀大学学习,也可以在英国,澳大利亚和美国的优秀大学学习。

我认为最重要的是要看三个方面,那就是你所获得的教育,确切的说是教育的标准;你将获得的经验,你会遇到的人和获得的软技能;当然,还有你的就业能力。如果你打算到英国留学,你要花费两万英镑的学费,另外还有准备两万英镑的生活费,这是对你未来的重大投资。所以最重要的是你能否获得足够的投资回报,包括通过教育建立的友谊和人脉以及奠定的职业道路。

主持人: Yes. And what kind of opportunities do we need to seize?

拉夫堡大学目前面临什么样的机遇?

Charlie: Well, we're here with Tencent, we are here with WeChat. I think there will be many digital technology opportunities in the future. We need to think about how we internationalise all aspects of education, that's obviously having different nationalities of students, also making sure the curriculum is international, and also that British students go overseas to places like China as well as Chinese students coming to the UK. I think the most important thing in the future is that the world is a global school, and we need to seize those opportunities to develop international partnerships and to ensure that business flows freely across different countries in the future.

我们能来到这里参加活动并领奖,是因为有腾讯,有微信。我认为将来会有很多数字技术相关的机会。我们需要考虑如何将教育的各个方面国际化,比如国际化的生源,国际化的课程,以及中英两国学生的互相流动。我认为未来世界,教育会是一所国家化的学校,我们需要抓住这些机会发展国际伙伴关系,并确保未来与不同国家的业务自由流动。

主持人:And with support and recognition Tencent users, especially Chinese students and parents play an important part in helping you to win this award. And what would you like to say to them?

贵机构在本届腾讯教育总评榜上拿到奖项,离不开广大网友的认可和支持。您有什么相对腾讯网友想说的话吗?

Charlie: Well, I would like to say a big thank you on behalf of the University. I think the most important thing for us is when we were working with UK parents and UK students, they get the opportunity to come onto our campus before their studies. Usually when you get to experience the Loughborough campus - which is a large green area, very safe, you get to mix very quickly with all the British and international students - very often people will say, right, this is the University that I want to come too.

The Chinese students, the Tencent parents, they don't usually get the opportunity to come to the Loughborough campus in advance. I encourage all our students and parents to come and visit Loughborough campus and we will give you a very warm welcome in return.

On behalf of Loughborough University, we are absolutely delighted. We recognise what a big

brand Tencent is and how important our international students and parents are to us.

We're very grateful for the award. We will continue to offer good value for money in terms of our education, in terms of our safety, and in terms of the employability prospects of our students. I hope this reassures the students’ parents!

我代表大学对腾讯网友表示非常感谢。我认为对我们来说最重要的是当我们与英国家长和英国学生合作时,他们确实有机会来到校园实地考察。 到了拉夫堡校园后,通常你会意识到这是一个非常安全的绿色校园,你会很快与所有英国学生,其国际学生打成一片。很多时候人们会说,对,这就是我想来的大学。中国学生和加长,他们通常没有机会来到拉夫堡校区。我鼓励所有学生和家长前来参观拉夫堡校区。我们将会热烈欢迎您的参观。同时我也代表大学表示非常开心,我们意识到腾讯这个品牌的影响力,国际学生及其家长对我们的重要性。 所以我们非常非常感激。我们将会在教育质量,校园安全和就业前景方面向中国学生继续提供物有所值的服务。

主持人:Ok. that's all thanks for coming and having this conversation with me.

非常感谢您接受采访

Charlie: Thank you very much.

非常感谢。
