Colleges and Universities

Located at 280 Zhengtong Road, Shanghai, the International Cultural Exchange School is one of the 17 full-time schools of Fudan University. Although it was officially founded in 1987, this school began to take international students as early as fifty years ago. Now it has 600 undergraduates, 700 students in long-term training courses and 700 students in short-term training course.


This school has close connections with institutions of higher learning in many countries. Apart from inter-college exchange programs, this school has established a number of Chinese teaching centers abroad, e.g., the Fudan-Xinsida Chinese Language Institute in Singapore, Hiroshima Campus in Japan, and the Nordic Confucius Institute in Stockholm which was founded on Feb. 10, 2005 with the strong support of the National Office for Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language and Stockholm University and has now begun its operation.

国际文化交流学院长期以来是复旦大学接受外国留学生和进行对外汉语教学的专门机构。复旦大学接受外国留学生的历史却已有半个世纪了。新中国成立后复旦大学接受的第一位外国学生是曾任日本东洋大学文学教授的今富正巳。1952年夏上海学院中文系并入复旦大学中文系,今富正已随之进入我校中文系学习。1953年7月提前1年毕业。1956年9月日本学生中田庆雄作为中国人民大学的“特别优秀生”,转到复旦大学中文系随胡裕树教授学习现代汉语,1958年7月毕业。同时学习的还有山下好之、菊地升等日本学生。中田庆雄现任日本国际贸易促进协会理事长。鉴于他为中日贸易发展作出的重大贡献,2003年1月20日中日友好协会宋健会长代表中国政府授予中田庆雄“中日友好使者”称号。1992年被复旦大学聘为顾问教授。

Long-Term Chinese Training Program

With long teaching experience, ICES is the first of its kind to break away from the traditional class-dividing method by semester and set up a new Chinese teaching system, i.e. “starting from scratch, dividing students into eight grades and giving two-year instructions”, which conforms to the characteristic of language acquisition and helps the student to advance gradually. And it saves students time and improves study efficiency.

This system has been tested by time and has played an important role in the teaching of Chinese as a second language at other universities as well.

The main courses in the long-term program are: oral Chinese, intensive reading, extensive reading, listening, writing, HSK guidance, journalistic listening & reading, Chinese economy, Chinese literature, Chinese history and brief introduction to China.

Tuition Fee: 21,000 yuan/year.
