Xiamen University

 

Xiamen University, founded in 1921 by Tan Kah Kee, a patriotic overseas Chinese leader, is the first higher-education institution in modern China built by overseas Chinese. The University is a leading institution on the nation’s Education Projects 211 and 985, two initiatives launched by the Chinese government to support selected universities in achieving world-class standing. Nestled snugly between green hills and the sea, the University offers an unrivaled environment for students pursuing higher education.
