For more than half a century, HQU has developed into a comprehensive institution of higher education capable of program offerings in 12 disciplines--philosophy, economics, law, education, literature, history, science, engineering, agriculture, medical science, management, and arts. HQU has a comparative strength in Chinese language and culture education, science and engineering programs, such as Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Architecture, Material Science and Pharmacy. Overall, the 29 colleges and 90 research institutes have been supporting numerous projects funded by both government and industries, one of which led to the award of the National Science and Technology Development by the central government.
The Quanzhou campus hosts most of the humanities, social sciences, and management programs, while most of the engineering programs are situated in the Xiamen campus.
The campus-community-centered facilities like cafeterias and eateries, banks and ATM terminals, post office, telecom companies, hospitals and clinics, grocery stores, book shops on Quanzhou and Xiamen campuses are all within easy reach. In addition, HQU provides fully furnished campus accommodations for international students with choices of one-bed, two-bed and four-bed rooms to meet different needs.
Rich and varied activities hosted by over 100 student organizations bring colorful and vigorous elements to the university’s two campuses. The extracurricular activities have become an important vehicle whereby students’ abilities in self-governance and social communications are exercised and cultural atmosphere is thus enhanced.
The student organizations cover a wide range of pursuits and interests, ranging from culture and arts, research groups in economics, public welfare, hands-on experience and theory application in science and technology, to social service, athletics and fitness, to name only a few.
