As China’s largest educational institution for graduate education, University of China Academic of Science (UCAS) has actively involved itself in the tide of China’s educational internationalization. The establishment of International College aims at taking the advantages of the educational resources of China Academic of Science (CAS) to boost the development of the university’s internationalization, and attract excellent overseas students to this multinational academic atmosphere. The key principles of International College are “Internationalization, Openness, Comprehensiveness and Perceptiveness”. The college will try to show its unique characteristics and combine scientific research and postgraduate education to become one of the world famous colleges.

Faculty and Students

In year 2013, during the early stage of establishment, International College introduced Professor Li Ling-Fong from Carnegie Mellon University as distinguished professor, at the same time to assist the implementation of PhD qualification examination. In year 2014, International College introduced professor Shiu Man Lai Gary from University of Wisconsin through "Thousand Talent Program". The faculty team of International College now has 1 distinguished professor, 27 professors from 17 institutes of CAS and 9 professors/vice professors from 7 colleges of UCAS.

In order to recruit high-quality and high-level students and promote rapid and healthy development of international students’ recruitment of the CAS and UCAS, the international college established the PhD qualification examination system. Recently, the establishment of the Asia-Pacific International Centre for Theoretical Physics will further promote the platform development of International College.

Students not only have the opportunities to meet the top CAS academician in the courses, but also be able to visit China’s state key laboratory and discuss with the scientific researchers face to face. Professors of the summer school are selected from worldwide top research universities such as University of Wisconsin-Madison, Delft University of Technology, University of Houston, Technical University of Denmark, University of Missouri, Arizona State University, and Hong Kong University of Science & Technology as well as institutions of CAS.
