Sun Yat-sen University, founded by Dr. Sun Yat-sen in 1924 and with an educational tradition spanning over 90 years, has formed an outstanding academic atmosphere and school spirit. With the solid multidisciplinary foundation of humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, medical sciences, and engineering and prominent academic influences, Sun Yat-sen University has developed into a modern comprehensive university that enjoys a reputation as a top-tier university nationally and a renowned university internationally.
With five campuses in the three cities of Guangzhou, Zhuhai and fi, and ten affiliated hospitals, the University is striving to become a world-class university and global center of learning.
Built on a solid multidisciplinary foundation of humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, medical sciences, and engineering, Sun Yat-sen University is propelled forward by the continuous pursuit of academic innovation. The University is equipped with a globally aware outlook, and has dedicated itself to being an institution that is “comprehensive, innovative, and open”. The goal of talent cultivation is to nurture students who have both ability and moral integrity, able to cultivate charisma and eager to serve their country. The guiding philosophy is to be oriented toward academic frontiers, oriented toward national major strategic needs, and oriented toward national and regional economic and social development. The basic approach is through the construction of big research teams, big projects and big platforms.
Since 2015, Sun Yat-sen University has implemented the “double plan” to strengthen the introduction and nurturing of domestic and overseas high-level talents and teams. In 2016, Sun Yat-sen University was ranked fourth in the number of newly increased high-level young talents in Chinese Universities. The University has been continuously exploring areas such as teaching, scientific research, and talent development, and has achieved good results. The number of SYSU disciplines ranked by ESI as among the world's top 1% reached 18, tied for second most among universities in China. In the QS World University Rankings, Academic Ranking of World Universities, and Times Higher Education World University Rankings, Sun Yat-sen University is also witnessing a swift improvement in its positioning. In 2017, the number of Sun Yat-sen University’s projects funded by the National Social Science Foundation of China was ranked first and the number of projects funded by the National Natural Science Foundation of China was ranked second nationwide. Nowadays, the national strategy of building Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area is complementary to the school-running pattern of Sun Yat-sen University, which can provide more development opportunities and resources to the university.
Now, standing at a new starting point, Sun Yat-sen University strives to enter the national first-tier of universities and the ranks of world-class elite universities, where humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, medical sciences and engineering can integrate and develop while retaining their distinctive characteristics.
