Semi-structured interviews with administrators were used to explore the complexities of branch campus operations. Student and alumni intervie ws explored the aspirations of students and the trajectories of alumni\, i ncluding their views on China’\;s regional presence. \;We present findings from interviews undertaken at Soochow University in Laos and dis cuss the complexities of cross-national research in a context of increased geopolitical tension. We conclude with a discussion of the possibilities of the branch campus as an emerging mode of international education\, with a focus on the branch campus with Chinese characteristics as one future p ossibility. \; \;
