Wuhan University of Technology began to admit international students in 1952. It is one of the earliest Chinese universities to receive international students under the authority of Chinese Government Scholarship Program. It is authorized by Chinese Scholarship Council to offer full-English MBA program since 2002, and successfully get International Trade program and Civil Engineering program in 2009. Up to November 2011, more than 1600 international students from more than 100 countries have studied at this university, and more than 1000 international students have graduated from WUT. Now the University has formed the educational system for international students with all disciplines, multiple levels and wide coverage.
WUT has established ”WUT Scholarship for Outstanding International Students”, “WUT Friendship Scholarships for International Students” , and “University Postgraduate Program Scholarship” to support excellent international students to study in WUT. As for self-supported students who have difficulties in tuition payment, the university could consider to exempt part of the tuition. And the university would reward the international students who are excellent in both character and study. It also recommends international students to apply part-time jobs in campus based on their situation, so as to attract more excellent self-supported student to come. The university also provides financial support to arrange Chinese students to help the first grade undergraduates in the form of “one Chinese student helps one international student which are in the same class”, which would help freshman to adapt to the new study and living environment.
WUT has set up Center for Teaching Chinese as the Second Language, which is responsible for training students who would be taught their majors in Chinese for Chinese and Chinese words in math, physics and chemistry. The university selected two international students to participate the First CCTV Chinese Competition for International Students in China, and both of them had successfully got into the final competition, one of them whose name is SHIROUYEH BAYEGAN from Iran finally got the third of the final. And Mr. MOSTAK HAMED GALIB from Bangladesh who has been studying in our university for eight years got “Youth Medal of Wuhan City” in 2006 and the “Fourth Ten Outstanding Volunteers of Hubei Province” in 2008.
Until now, there are around 1000 international students who have graduated from WUT, and have become mainstay in their countries or areas.
