Aiming to be the internationally known research university
Aiming to grow into the internationally known research university, NPU has been grasping the chance to find collaboration and partnership worldwide. We are now a member of the Technological Universities Association comprising universities from Finland, Spain, Belarus and Russia. We are also the member of Excellence 9 in China and has established cooperation with nearly 300 universities, enterprises and institutes from different countries including the U.S.A, the UK, Germany, France, Russia and Japan. Besides, NPU is also one of the representative universities for the National Overseas Program for Postgraduates, the International Cooperative Program for Innovative Talents and the National Construction of High-Level University Public Graduate Project. Students will get financial support from Chinese Scholarship Council, which to a great extent promote the international mobility of our students.
What we offer now:
l ● 36 double degree programmes with universities in 10 countries;
l ● Over 30 credit exchange programmes with 13 countries;
l ● Short term exchange programmes with Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan;
l ● Summer/Winter programmes;
l ● CSC supported programmes.
Annually, more than 2300 students go abroad to study and more than 1600 faculty members participate in international meetings or do research together with overseas experts. Notably, international cooperation is taken as the most important element in the development of the university in coming years. Thus we are looking forward to:
●Expanding our partnership globally—to establish connections with more famous universities internationally, and to make friends with all elite institutes;
●Deepening cooperation with our partners—what we do is larger than what we say. Once we become partners, we will work hard together to benefit our students and professors. Moreover, what we do will certainly contribute to development of global higher education;
●Creating more choices for our students—NPU students are eager to further their studies worldwide, either for short term exchange or degree programmes. Their visions are not limited to only one region, but extended to the whole world. Except sending students to other countries, we also welcome professors to come to NPU to establish Joint Educational Institution in which all lectures will be taught in English by both foreign professors and NPU professors.
●Supporting more Joint Research—NPU is strong in research especially in engineering. We believe the crash of ideas from different parts of the world will create a tremendous power to push forward research issues and establish joint research centers;
●Inviting academic luminaries to NPU—NPU welcomes Nobel Laurates, top scientists, editors of top scientific journals etc. to help expose our students to pure science exploration and research;
●Establishing culture communication platforms for students all around the world—located in Xi'an, one of the Ancient capital of the world's four major civilization, NPU is proud of the local culture and eager to learn about other cultures from every corner of the world. We expect our students to know more about this planet, and we are more than happy to welcome friends all over the world.
