Why Choose Xiamen University of Technology
1.A university located in an international coastal city
Xiamen University of Technology (XMUT) is located in Xiamen--an “International Garden City” and UN Habitat Award recipient on the southeastern coast of China. Studying in Xiamen, you can enjoy the bright sunshine, the cool breeze from the sea, lush plants and spring-like weather in all four seasons.
48 “Global Fortune 500” companies have invested in Xiamen and around there is a large number of international professionals and students in the city, forming a culturally diverse community for you to explore. The combination of traditional Fujian culture and modern city life make Xiamen a great place from which to explore what’s on in China.
2.An international university embracing different cultures
XMUT was founded in 1981, at the same time as the Xiamen Special Economic Zone, and is one of the best universities in Fujian Province. With collaborative programs with 40 overseas partner universities, 30 Taiwanese partner universities and internship programs with more than 190 local and international enterprises, XMUT international students have access to extensive opportunities for enterprise internships in China and further studies with XMUT overseas partner universities.
At XMUT we have a wealth of experience in welcoming international students. It is 18 years since we first received our license to invite students from Xiamen’s sister-cities abroad, and since that time we have been recognized by the British Council as one of the best Chinese host universities for UK students, overtaking top universities in Beijing and Shanghai.
Now XMUT is growing into a multicultural community with 50 international teachers from 12 different countries, and has received around 300 international students.
3.More affordable, with competitive tuition and supportive scholarships
XMUT charges international students lower tuition than most of its counterparts in China. We are one of the Chinese Institutions Admitting International Students Under Chinese Government Scholarship Programs and we offer Fujian Provincial Government Scholarships covering annual tuition and accommodation, and XMUT Registration Scholarships and Excellence Scholarships, each covering 50% of annual tuition. As a result, you will be able to concentrate on and enjoy your studies, without having to worry about financial matters.
4.One-to-one student partnerships, home-stay, part-time jobs and internships
At XMUT we see that every international student is partnered with a tutor to provide the best possible support for your learning. In addition, during the holidays, students can apply for home-stay visits with the families of XMUT staff or students, to experience Chinese family life. Part-time jobs on campus and internships with local enterprises are available for students to learn more about Chinese work culture.
5. Articulation programs and worldwide academic excellence available
For students who want to receive degrees conferred by American/European universities while studying in China, our articulation programs with overseas partner universities are perfect for you. Students attending XMUT joint-degree programs can choose to complete the first two-year study in XMUT and then transfer to our partner universities in Canada for the remaining years of study, or to participate in joint courses run by XMUT and our prestigious American and British partner universities. XMUT undertakes to help you to grow into a successful world citizen by combining the best of Eastern and Western culture and academia, all at a very competitive cost.
