Colleges and Universities

Shanghai International Studies University (SISU) was founded in December 1949 as the former Shanghai Russian College. It later was named the Shanghai Foreign Language Institute and became a national key university approved by the State Council in 1963. Approved by the Ministry of Education in 1994, it was officially renamed as “Shanghai International Studies University”. In the same year, it was listed as one of the first colleges and universities jointly supervised by the national Ministry of Education and the Municipality of Shanghai. In 1996, it passed the evaluation process of Project 211 directed by the Ministry of Education, and became one of the nation’s “100 key universities for the 21st Century.”


上海外国语大学是中国教育部直属,列入“211工程“建设行列的重点大学,也是上海市政府共同建设的大学之一。她成立于1949年,是新中国最早教授外国语的大学之一。至今已跨越59年历史,已建设成为独具外语教特色,兼容文学、教育学、经济学、管理学、法学等五大学科门类,具有较高声誉的多科性外国语大学。

In SISU, the International Students’ Education has always been an essential part of its international communication. Since it started to enroll oversea students in the late 1970s, SISU has gained invaluable experiences in the international education and the teaching of Chinese as a foreign language. It now offers various programs at different levels, ranging from short-term Chinese lessons, degree and non-degree Chinese language programs to the Master’s and doctoral programs in teaching Chinese as a foreign language. Over the past 30 years, these programs have benefited some 10,000 international students from over 60 countries and regions. Currently there are more than 1,200 fulltime international students studying for long-term programs and around 400 for short-term academic visits and training.

The high-quality language teaching in SISU has been a long-established tradition and its distinguishing feature. During the past 30 years, teaching Chinese as a foreign language has become a fast-developing discipline and currently has over 40 full-time teachers with academic prestige and educational experience, more than half of whom are professors and associate professors. In addition, a large majority of them are the holders of the Certificate for Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language and have had experience teaching Chinese abroad. We also have a stable team of highly experienced part-time teachers, who, along with our competent full-time staff, are devoted to this discipline.

The international education programs in SISU always attach great importance to the good combination of teaching and personal experience of the language. Therefore, in terms of teaching content and approach, priority is given to the student’s practical application of their language skills. For this purpose, a large variety of extra-curricular activities are organized. For instance, international students are regularly provided with opportunities to watch acrobatic shows and traditional Chinese operas, pay visits to places of cultural and historical interest, and take field trips to the Chinese rural enterprises. In order to boost students’ enthusiasm for the study of Chinese, every year many competitions are held in areas such as recitation, speech, composition and songs in Chinese. Artistic performances by international students are also often staged. This not only enriches their Chinese study and improves their practical Chinese skills, but also helps them to better understand Chinese culture and society.

The main campus of SISU enjoys a favorable geographic location with convenient transportation. The commercial center is only minutes away. The school boasts advanced facilities for studying and living. It has modern labs for simultaneous interpretation, language training and educational technology. First-class facilities and services are easily available in SISU Guesthouse and Foreign Experts’ Building. Students can fully relax themselves in the school’s new multi-functional gym. SISU is indeed an ideal place for life and study.
