NC in Shanghai Semester & Academic Year Heading Banner

Dragon Head from ParadeAbout Fudan

As one of the nation’s topmost institutions of advanced learning and higher education, Fudan has achieved worldwide fame throughout its venerable past. The University was established by Ma Xiang-bo in 1905 and became one of the national elite universities after the founding of the People’s Republic of China in 1949.

To exert a more positive and profound influence on the world, Fudan University became more intellectually comprehensive by covering a wider range of academic disciplines: the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, medical sciences, technology, and management. Better equipped and more robust, Fudan is one step closer toward its ambitious aim of becoming a leading university in the world.
