International Exchange and Cooperation


Shantou University takes full benefit of the support from the Li Ka Shing Foundation and the ties with overseas universities to strengthen academic exchange and cooperation. Numerous distinguished scholars from first-class universities at home and abroad have been invited to conduct seminars or deliver lectures to the undergraduate students, with the aim to broaden their academic horizons. Among those distinguished scholars were Nobel laureates Yang Zhenning, Li Zhengdao, Ding Zhaozhong, James Mirlees and Zhu Diwen, as well as other world-class celebrities including Chen Xingshen, Qiu Chengtong, Pan Yugang and He Dayi. Some famous scientists from well-known universities like Cambridge University and University of California at Berkeley (UCB) were also engaged as honorary professors, chair professors or adjunct professors to deliver high quality academic lectures at the University.


Under the auspices of the Li Ka Shing Foundation, STU has become one of the few universities in mainland China that awards full scholarships to overseas exchange students. So far, the University has established close academic ties with nearly 20 universities in countries such as the US, the UK, France, Japan, Russia, Australia and Germany, among others, and has launched exchange programs for undergraduate and graduate students.
