Bristol is being taken to Beijing when a graduation ceremony with a difference is staged in the Chinese capital.
Iconic Bristol landmarks and characters including the Clifton Suspension Bridge, Wills Memorial Buildings, Harbourside development and even Aardman Animations' Gromit will be featured in giant displays at the degree-giving event on Saturday.
Almost 400 new Chinese graduates will mingle and take photos among three metre tall photos of the West Country images having studied in Bristol over the last few years.
The University of Bristol will use the ceremony to further strengthen links between the two cities with Vice-Chancellor and President Prof Hugh Brady signing new agreements with several of China’s leading universities.
One of the graduates, Jingwen Kang, describes her time in Bristol as ‘a beautiful dream’.
