Hunan University

Hunan University , located in Changsha, Hunan, is one of the most important universities in the People's Republic of China. It traces its history back to the Yuelu Academy founded in the Song Dynasty, over 1,030 years ago . It is arguable if this makes Hunan University the oldest university in the world since the original Yuelu Academy had no degree-granting mechanism, or other features of a Western university. Moreover, two North African universities predate Yuelu Academy. The Yuelu Academy was a venue for Chinese scholars and their students to meet and study deep issues very much like what Aristotle and his students did in ancient Greece.

Hunan University is among China's top universities in both education and research. Its Chemistry, Civil Engineering, Industrial Design, Software Engineering, and Business and International Trade programs are some of its strongest. The Chinese calligraph of Yuelu Academy was written by Emperor Zhenzong of Song in 1015, and the Chinese calligraph of Hunan University was written by Mao Zedong in 1950 as soon as the People's Republic of China was founded. Both events were considered as extremely prestigious in China.(from wiki.com)
