Education of China has opened its gate to the world. Since the establishment of XMU International College in 2005, our college has been persisting with our principle of developing communications and cooperation with other countries over the world to bring in high-quality overseas education resources. Combined with the advantages of Xiamen University, we provide a platform for domestic students to receive international education.

Over the 11 years after establishment, our college has been dedicated to building the biggest and most influential base specialised in overseas education and Chinese-foreign cooperative education. We’re determined to establish a featured cooperation pattern and branded projects. We’ve cooperated with over 60 renowned universities in the world on undergraduate and postgraduate programs, including the US, UK, France, Ireland, Japan, Australia, New Zealand and Netherland. The subjects include education, economics, art, management and information technology. In 2010, our college was entitled the most recognisable preparatory course; our cooperation project with Dublin Business School in Ireland was approved by the Ministry of Education and officially started recruiting students in 2011. It was the first cooperative education project included in the national student recruitment plan.In 2012, the training base for overseas education wasjointly established by the Chinese Service Center for Overseas Education of the Ministry of Education and Xiamen University. Our college has been the responsible runner ever since. This base is the only authorised institute by the Chinese Service Center for Overseas Education. In 2015, two undergraduate projects, accounting and finance, run by our college and Dublin Business School passed the assessment for cooperative education by the Ministry of Education. This project has recruited 923 students by far. The application rates for world top 100 universities were 70% and 90.7% each year.

More than 3000 students from our college have furthered their studies in cooperative universities, including the UK, US, France, Japan, Australia and Canada. Many of them have headed for renowned foreign universities for Master’s Degrees after receiving their Bachelor’s Degrees, such as Oxford University, Columbia University, Australian National University and Melbourne University. Some have stayed in the universities for doctorates. Over 1400 students are studying in our college currently, more than1000 of who have completed their study and are working at the Big Four accounting firms, securities industry and new-technology enterprises.

Together with foreign university, weestablish the course system and teaching plans and adopt bilingual or English education. We have developed close relationships with foreign universities via communications and exchange visits. Strict teaching quality supervision system has also been set up for both domestic and foreign assessments to ensure high-quality education. Cooperative universities have a high opinion of our college.

Standing at the new start, we will further our cooperation with high-level universities around the world to deepen the international communications. Our goal is to make XMU International College a model for Chinese-foreign cooperative education and to cultivate more international professionals for our country
