Welcome to the web site of Yangzhou University. We shall feel happier when you find opportunities to visit our campuses, which serve more than 42,000 full-time students. You may have come across the word “Yangzhou”, the name of the city where our university is located, when you have “Yanzhou (or Yangchow) Fried Rice” in Chinese restaurants. But do remember that Yangzhou does not produce only “Fried Rice”, there are many other fantastic things that are worth seeing here.
Merged into the present Yangzhou University in 1992 from several independent colleges, some of which have about 100 years' history, the university is young with its old and rich heritage, thus stronger and more competitive in its academic endeavors than ever. I encourage you to come with your interest in traditional Chinese culture and China-based subjects. YZU will provide you with its every possible program flexible and adaptable to your interests.
With joint efforts of more than 2,000 faculty members of high quality, we are striving to work for our objective in the new millennium: to make our university among the tops in China and enjoy reputation in the world.
