Confucius Institute Building in Sudan

We have constructed the Sudan building of the Confucius Institute, which is opened in various countries through China's global collaboration. The building, located in the capital city of Khartoum, was designed as a single-story structure using the prefab construction system. The installation of the 216 m2 building was completed in 12 days.

In collaboration with the University of Khartoum, the Confucius Institute (CIUK) was established on the university campus primarily as a language building. Chinese language education will be provided in the building. The Institute building, specifically designed and produced for this purpose, includes classrooms and a language laboratory. One of the rooms in the building will also be used as a sports activity area.

Karmod Prefabricated Buildings in University Campuses with Rapid Installation

Karmod prefabricated buildings are produced using the latest generation technologies and a seamless system. The buildings, whose prefabrication is completed in modern facilities, can be easily transported regardless of the transportation system, whether it be by sea or road. They can be installed and put into service within days by professional teams at the designated location.

The prefab building for the Khartoum Confucius Institute was also constructed using the same system and completed in a short time. Karmod structures, supporting the fast installation feature with long lifespan and good insulation performance, are preferred for educational buildings. In a hot climate like Sudan, this building can be easily cooled with minimal energy consumption thanks to its good insulation.

About Sudan Confucius Institute (CIUK)

The Confucius Institute opened within the University of Khartoum is a non-profit institution that operates for the public interest. The institute operates with the economic support of the Chinese Government and plays an active role in promoting Chinese culture. The institute in Khartoum is the first Confucius Institute opened in Sudan. The establishment of the institute is based on a cooperation letter signed between the University of Khartoum and the Confucius Institute Headquarters on October 25, 2007. The official agreement was signed in 2008. The operational responsibilities of the institute were undertaken by the Northwest Normal University of China and the University of Khartoum.

Objectives of Sudan Confucius Institute (CIUK)

  • To support the teaching of Chinese and promote Chinese culture
  • To organize academic and cultural activities for local institutions
  • To offer Chinese language classes for learners
  • To provide counseling for Sudanese students on studying abroad in China
  • To assist Sudanese students in applying for scholarships at Chinese universities
  • To promote various collaborations between China and Sudan.

What are Confucius Institutes?

Confucius Institute is a public educational partnership between higher education institutions in China and other countries. As of 2019, there are 530 Confucius Institutes established in six different continents worldwide. These institutes are financially supported and organized by Hanban, an organization affiliated with the Chinese government. The stated purpose of the institutes is to promote Chinese language and culture, support Chinese language education as a foreign language globally, and facilitate cultural exchanges. The countries with a significant concentration of Confucius Institutes include the United States, South Korea, and Japan. Turkey has four Confucius Institutes.

Similar to well-established institutions like the German Goethe Institute or the Spanish Instituto Cervantes, the Confucius Institute is named after a figure closely associated with Chinese culture, Confucius. In Turkey, the institution that serves a similar purpose is the Yunus Emre Institute.

Unlike other similar institutions, Confucius Institutes directly conduct their activities within university campuses in host countries. The associated Confucius Classroom program aims to establish partnerships with local middle and high schools to provide teachers and teaching materials.

The institute has been accused of being a tool for the Chinese government to misuse its influence and suppress academic freedom. Retired Chinese official Li Changchun described Confucius Institutes as "an important part of China's overseas propaganda apparatus."
