University of Science and Technology of China(中国科学技术大学)

The University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) is a prominent university in China and enjoys an excellent reputation worldwide.  In 2020, USTC was ranked 80th by Times Higher Education, and 89th by QS. It was established by the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) in 1958 in Beijing, as a strategic action by the Chinese government, to meet China’s science and technology needs and increases the country’s international competitiveness. CAS integrated its resources with USTC, with the aim of educating top talent in cutting-edge, interdisciplinary science and technology.  In 1970, USTC moved to its current location in Hefei, the capital of Anhui Province. 


From the start, USTC’s mission has been to “focus on frontier areas of science and technology and educate top leaders in science and technology for China and the world”. Central to its strategy has been the combination of education and research, as well as the emphasis on quality rather than quantity. Led by the most renowned Chinese scientists of the time, USTC set up a series of programs creatively encompassing frontier research and development of new technology. As a result, the university has taken the lead in higher education in China.
 

USTC is one of the most important innovation centers in China. It is the only university in China operating two national labs: the National Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory and the Hefei National Laboratory for Physical Sciences at the Microscale. It also jointly operates two national “big science” facilities along with CAS institutes: the Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak and the Steady High Magnetic Field of the High Magnetic Field Laboratory.

USTC is a world leader in fields like quantum manipulation, nanotechnology, high-temperature superconductivity, speech processing, fire science and life science. It is always ranked as one of the best universities in China. For example, USTC was ranked first among Chinese universities from 2008 to 2013 by Nature Publishing Index China.
 

Total enrollment for spring 2016 is about 15,500 students, of whom 7,400 are undergraduates, 6,200 are master’s students, and 1,900 are Ph.D. students. USTC has 1,812 faculty members, of whom 547 are professors. USTC has 15 degree-granting schools in the fields of physical sciences, life sciences, information science and technology, earth and space sciences, public affairs, nuclear science and technology, mathematical sciences, chemistry and material science, engineering science, computer science and technology, management, humanities and social science, environmental science and electro-optical technology, and software engineering.

 

We welcome students from all over the world to visit and study at USTC for degree programs at all levels or non-degree programs. 


 



To help international students to adapt to campus life smoothly, the school provides on-campus accommodation for international students.

In order to meet the diverse housing needs of students, after taking students’ nationalities, religious beliefs, living and eating habits into account, our school decided to provide international students with apartment-style housing with different room types, including three bedrooms with one living room, two bedrooms with one living room, and one bedroom with one living room, etc..

International student dormitories are equipped with wardrobes, desks, beds, mattresses, small dining tables, chairs, and other furniture, as well as air-conditioning, refrigerators, washing machines, electric heaters, TVs, microwaves, electric kettles, water heaters, gas stoves, exhaust fans, and other household appliances. The school also arranges regular cleaning and maintenance for the dormitory of international students.

Each house provides a separate bathroom, and the kitchen is equipped with microwaves, gas stoves, and other electrical appliances, which makes it convenient for foreign students to take a bath alone and cook at any time they wish to.
