Established in 1914, Jiaxing University (JXU, website: http://www.zjxu.edu.cn/) is an academic institution nationally distinctive for its multidisciplinary academics, committed to preparing innovative graduates and future productive citizens with a wide range of expertise to address the critical challenges of our times.
Our university’s Motto is Integrity and Tenacity; Diligence and Prudence, which was inscribed by Shiing-shen Chern, the worldwide renowned mathematician as well as our first Honorary President. His inscription, engraved on the stone standing in front of the Administration Building on the main campus, has been motivating all the staff members and students of JXU for more academic and research excellence.
Therefore, we are exerting our utmost efforts to provide our students with a humanistic and holistic education that enables them to think globally and innovatively and make practical use of their professional knowledge and skills for smooth cross-cultural communication. Over the past 100 years, our graduates have been contributing to the economic and social development of China and to the promotion of friendly exchange with people around the world.
Meanwhile, JXU has been devoting to promoting the international education and cooperation. We have now established partnerships with more than 20 universities in the U.S.A, Germany, France, the UK, Denmark, Russia, South Korea and Japan, etc. We have made it a strategic priority in our development planning to go global and actively work on expanding students’ international horizons, in particular focusing on their immersion in a multicultural environment. On the one hand, we send the students for the international exchange programs with our partner universities. JXU also has set various scholarships to sponsor our exchange students with a view to encouraging our students to further their study abroad. On the other hand, we have been dedicating to offering the foreign students more opportunities to study in JXU. Over the past five years, around 400 international students have been enrolled in our university.
Looking forward to meeting you in JXU as well as the international cooperation with you!
