It is an important window for the College’s foreign exchange and service.

In combination with the actual needs of the College in teaching, scientific research and social services, the Center (Office) introduces high-quality foreign teachers through various channels to build an international team of teachers, serving foreign language majors in 10 languages such as English, Japanese, Korean, Arabic, Thai, French, Spanish, Russian, German and Portuguese, as well as the teaching of College English courses. At the same time, we employ high-level foreign experts (Class A) in economics, management, new media and other disciplines to help improve the quality of teaching and scientific research.
The Center (Office) widely recruits nondegree international students in the form of student exchange with overseas cooperative universities. At the same time, through recruiting students from the society, we recruit a certain number of degree-pursuit international students with solid Chinese foundation and excellent overall quality to study in the majors of international trade (bilingual teaching), Chinese international education and so on.
