Why Study in FZFU
To accommodate social demands for high-caliber application-oriented talents with innovation spirit and international vision, the University stopped recruiting students of 3-year college level in 2014 and starts application-oriented undergraduate education. Now the University has 15,624 students and 25 undergraduate programs with literature, economics, management, art and engineering majors developing at the same time. It recruits annually about 4,000 students from 24 provinces (autonomous regions and municipalities) nationwide with minimum passing marks for admission for liberal arts and science ranking top among similar schools in Fujian province in recent three years. Freshmen enrollment rate is kept above 94% and graduate employment rate is averaged over 95%, excelling most similar schools in Fujian province.
The University pays great attention to open school running in inclusive manner to embrace all sorts of experience. As the first private higher education institution to obtain overseas student recruitment qualification, the University now has 32 international students. Moreover, the University has partnered with 13 world-known universities or scientific research institutes such as University of Plymouth and Stony Brook University. Among first pilot schools to cooperate in school running with Taiwan higher education institutions and boasting great regional advantage located near Taiwan, the University has established a long-term partnership with 18 higher education institutions in Taiwan since 2008 and engaged actively in exchanges, joint training programs, innovation & entrepreneurship programs and social practice programs for students and teachers from both sides of the Taiwan Straits. To enhance intensive development, the University also established counterpart-assistance relationship with Fujian Normal University and signed memorandum of understanding in running school or strategic cooperation agreements with Southwestern University of Finance and Economics and Fujian Agriculture and Forestry University and therefore obtains great support in respect of talents training, disciplines & majors, scientific research & innovation and building of teaching staff.
Looking into the future, we will continue morality and citizenship education for students, lay solid foundation for the University, improve educational quality, intensify education reform and enhance intensive development towards a “first-rate university lasting for centuries” by sticking to five development concepts of “innovation, coordination, green, openness and sharing”, education policies of the State and socialist orientation for school running in order to make greater contribution for a rejuvenated and abundant Chinese nation with flexible systems, upgraded industries and ecological beauty.
