Our students are encouraged to have movable study experiences worldwide. The school, therefore, has developed a series of exchange or visiting study programs with partner universities in the USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, Germany, France, Australia and New Zealand. Those programs can be long-term (one or two years), or short-term (half a year, three months or one month in the summer or winter).
Along with a team of long-term or visiting international professors are 318 domestic faculty members (up to May,2016) who hold the university issue-qualification which enables them to teach academic courses in English. Most of those holders have an international education background. This unique internationally- oriented professional team ensures the sustainability of the academic teaching quality in English.
The vision of the school is to attract more high-quality students globally, and nurture them to become internationally-minded academic and professional talents.
The mission of the school is to be student-oriented and to provide a unique multi-culture environment for academic study in English at an international standard with dedicated high-quality teachers, critical thinking teaching methods, English-medium textbooks, multinational enterprises internship schemes, high-impact movable study opportunity, and student self-development.
