In recent years, guided by the principles of "expand the scale, optimize the structure, improve the quality, and build the strength", the international students in ZUST have been greatly improved both in scale and in structure, and the education quality has been largely boosted. ZUST is one of the top universities in Zhejiang Province in terms of international education and this has become a new growth point for the international exchange and cooperation in ZUST and has enhanced our strength in education internationalization.
In 2015, the number of international students reached 1700, among which 975 were undergraduates and 19 were graduate students. ZUST ranked top 5 in Zhejiang Province in terms of the number of international students and the number of international degree students, and has won several national and provincial awards for international education. The international students in ZUST come from 104 countries in 5 continents and they study in 15 different majors.
To encourage more excellent foreign students to study in ZUST, we have set up scholarships for new students, excellent degree students and excellent students in Chinese language programs, etc. All international students are also eligible to apply for “Chinese Government Scholarship”, “Confucius Institute Scholarship”, and “Zhejiang Provincial Government Scholarship for International Students”.
