It currently holds a position in the top-15 ranked universities in China, and is particularly known for economics and management, fine art, law, chemistry, journalism, communication and mathematics.

Xiamen University's main campus is located in Siming District in south-western Xiamen. In 2015, Xiamen set up its Malaysia campus, becoming the first Chinese university to establish a campus overseas.  In addition to this, Xiamen University has inter-university cooperative ties with over 280 institutions of higher education at home and abroad and it has co-established 16 Confucius Institutes with universities in North America, Europe, and Africa.

Xiamen University is our largest international partner, and our history of cooperation goes back over 20 years. In 2016, we successfully ran our first Summer School with Xiamen University and our students continue to enjoy this opportunity to visit Xiamen and experience Chinese culture.

Over the years we have received a great number of their excellent students, and we are proud to offer a number of opportunities for students currently studying at Xiamen University:
