GXNU currently offers a variety of programs and degrees for students of all levels and nationalities, and our academic programs cover at least twelve different branches of learning. In fact, GXNU was one of the earliest higher institutions to be approved by the State to accept international students and begin to foster multi-cultural communication and relationships with many different countries.
University specifically offers short-term training in various programs, undergraduate degrees, as well as Master's degree and Doctoral degree courses in Chinese language learning.

Guangxi Normal University also has a large and diverse student population to consider.

Guangxi Normal University is known for having 3 campuses: Wangcheng Campus, Yucai Campus, and Yanshan Campus - covering a total area of 300 hectares. Of them, Wangcheng Campus was the former site of the Jingjiang Prince's Mansion in the Ming Dynasty around 700 years ago. While it is not fully utilized as an academic campus anymore, it is a stunning location to visit where one can see a part of the rich, cultural heritage that continues to exist in Guilin today. It is also worth pointing out that Wangcheng Campus is considered to be one of the most beautiful campuses in China and is the only school campus in the country cited as a 5-A tourist spot.
GXNU has worked together to set up 3 Confucius Institutes with the Prince of Songkla University in Thailand, the Malang National University in Indonesia, and the Hanoi University in Vietnam. It has attached great importance to the ASEAN studies and has set up the "ASEAN Education Research Center", "Vietnam Research Center", Indonesian Culture Center", and "Thai Culture Center".
