About Guangzhou University

Guangzhou University has two campuses located in China’s third- largest city, Guangzhou. The first campus is the University Town Campus, the second is Gui Huagang Campus located downtown. The university was established in 2000 by the Chinese Ministry of Education merging five institutions.

The university offers 69 undergraduate majors, 36 master's degrees, as well as eight doctoral degrees. There are 29 schools at the university, including economics and statistics, Marxism, law, physics, life sciences, journalism, and innovation and entrepreneurship. Across this range of schools, there’s a breadth of study options for students, with courses ranging from business administration to teaching. At doctorate level, the course options are minimised into more specialist areas, education, mathematics, astronomy, statistics, civil engineering, cyberspace security, business management, and education.

The university has strong links with over 200 universities across the globe, allowing students to study abroad in another country.

Students can enjoy lots of extracurricular activities at Guangzhou, including ballet, elegant art appreciation, debate, dancing, and Chinese classics reading. Each year the university holds a cultural month for activities which place morality, science, career guidance and enlightenment as their core values. Many students also choose to volunteer during their time at Guangzhou University, helping their local community.

The university research teams work alongside local private and public organisations to contribute to the local area. This has been seen previously with Guangzhou University creating vibration control for the Canton Tower, as well as energy dissipation and seismic isolation of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao bridge.
