A university is the place where knowledge is imparted and wisdom edified; where great ideas and culture are spread. The collegiate years are an important time when young people develop into well-educated, responsible and capable citizens. Xihua University offers quality and diversified programs, ranging from degree programs both at graduate and undergraduate level to Chinese Language and culture programs. We have been continually making our efforts to tailor and customize the programs to meet the specific needs of our students. In addition to the classroom hours and time in library, you could make your every single day full of excitement at Xihua University: cycling with your teammates, staging a play with other actors, joining a country tour organized by the university photographic association and your next day will be just as exciting. Xihua University is a university in Sichuan province, Peoples Republic of China. Approved by the State Ministry of Education, Xihua University (XHU) was founded on April 16, 2003, formed by the merger of the former Sichuan University of Science and Technology and the former Teachers College. The former Sichuan University of Science and Technology, once called the Sichuan Mechanical College of Agriculture, was founded in 1960. The former Teachers College, located in Peng Zhou County, was founded in 1971. The university consists of 16 schools, one department and 52 undergraduate programs, covering the fields of Science, Management, Liberal Arts, Technique, Economy, Law and Education. Currently, the university enrolls students from 23 provinces and is qualified to enroll foreign students. There are about 22,000 full-time students, including 16,000 undergraduates and 400 graduates.

XHU has also invited 3 academicians to be directors of the key provincial laboratories, 14 other academicians and 43 distinguished professors to be part-time professors. For its good reputation, XHU has collected funds in many ways in order to develop itself. In 2002, the university signed an agreement with the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China and secured a loan of RMB one billion yuan. In 2002, the university signed another agreement with Xin Tiantong Co. Ltd, which will invest one-billion-yuan to build an extension of the campus. XHU will initiatively take part in the worldwide talent competition and strive to build first-class provincial disciplines.
