Our university’s educational goal is to foster leaders not only for our country but for the world. We do our best to provide students with a global perspective and with opportunities to experience the world academically, culturally, and professionally.

We have established official sisterhood relationships with 150 universities in 27 different countries: With each of these we exchange students and faculty members, hold academic symposiums, conduct joint research, and share information, and materials. We support our faculty members’ involvement in international academic activities, including research projects, presentations, attendance of symposiums and seminars, and the publishing of research papers in foreign journals.

For our students, we provide opportunities to visit foreign countries to study language and culture, participate in professional training programs and to compete in international competitions. In addition, every student is required to take an English course from native speaking lecturers in their freshman year. We have welcomed visiting professors and students from our sister universities in the fields of international studies, economics, Chinese language and literature, fashion design, ceramic art, visual communication design, music, and the performing arts.
