Helping you adapt to a new environment

I try to go into each country that I visit with an open mind and blank pages. Too much is changing all around the world, at such a rapid pace, to be judgemental prior to experiencing something so vastly different from one's own culture and system.

Oh man, if it hadn't have been for my Chinese friends, I don't know where I'd be right now. They helped to enlighten so many topics and issues in our discussions over delicious Chinese food. I've kept in contact with all of them and seen most of them in their home environment, which I believe strengthens these relationships that will last for some time to come.

The foundation of success

Nankai University became a member of the 985 project in 2010. The project set to promote the development and reputation of a small group of universities to become the elite institutions of China. It unlocked billions of dollars of funding to build new facilities, hold international conferences, attract world-renowned faculty and visiting scholars, and facilitate world-class research. The project closed its doors in 2011, meaning no further institutions would join the group. Nankai has a strong reputation for research. Many teachers are research-active and remain at the forefront of their field.

In 2015, the new Jin Nan campus opened in the south of Tianjin. Over US$600million has been invested in the project and 15 faculties are already using the new facilities, including the School of Medicine.
