In October 2016 VIA welcomed Shanghai vice mayor and delegation to discuss areas of cooperation. The Vice Mayor showed a great interest in VIAs practice oriented education programmes and collaboration with clinical practice.

Over the years VIA has welcomed several delegation from Shanghai municipality and partner universities in Shanghai - and today VIA and Shanghai has strong ties in the area of health care.

Shanghai Municipality has for over ten years been sister city to Central Denmark Region, home of VIA University College - and all three parties benefits from several common development projects, knowledge sharing and exchange of staff and students.
