The Chinese Language Council International, also known as Hanban, recently set up a Confucius Institute in the University of New South Wales in Australia. Other universities in Australia that have Confucius Institutes include the University of West Australia and Sydney University. The next potential one to set up a Confucius Institute is the University of Wollongong, which is in discussion with a university in Beijing.
At the end of April 2009, the Chinese Language Council International had established 326 Confucius Institutes in 81 countries around the world.
