In addition to the faculties themselves, the university hosts a sports ground, a canteen where you can buy local or Muslim cuisine, a library and a reading room (including those with electronic resources).
All audiences and lecture halls are equipped with the latest technology.
Admission and tuition fees
A very big advantage of the educational institution is that 11th grade graduates are admitted to admission, i.e. minors. For admission to the entrance examinations, it is enough to have a school leaving certificate.
All underage applicants need a guardian in China who will be responsible for them. Guardianship can be arranged directly through the institute, paying about $ 300 for this. Additionally, applicants must provide a certificate of a satisfactory level of health.
Students entering the International Economics specialty must obtain an IELTS certificate with a score of at least 3.0.
The cost of training is from $ 3000 per year, excluding living expenses, meals, etc.
The university is included in the list of educational institutions to which the scholarship of the Government of the PRC applies (you must apply for it separately). Also, for extremely high academic performance, students can receive monetary rewards from the institute itself (available from the second year at the university).
The most popular program is “Chinese language and culture”, upon completion of which the student receives a translator’s diploma (which is not equivalent to a European bachelor’s degree).
Many applicants are interested in the program in the specialty “International Economics”. Its important advantage is the ability to continue studying at the University of Plymouth in the UK. However, upon admission, prospective students will have to demonstrate knowledge of both Chinese and English.
Linguistic programs should be mentioned separately, the main of which is “Chinese as a foreign language”. All classes are conducted by professional teachers in small groups (maximum 15 people). The main principle of teaching is an individual approach to each student.
The institute has several faculties of various orientations. Among them, the following specialties can be distinguished:
- psychology of youth;
