Exchange Programs

Internationalization has become an important strategic task of Sun Yat-sen University ever since its foundation. The University is committed to seeking/providing diverse exchange programs and nurturing the students as global citizens with international perspective as well as local root throughout their studies at the University.

The Office of International Cooperation & Exchange (OICE) is responsible for developing and enhancing international relations with overseas institutions by establishing joint student mobility programs and other academic collaborations. OICE provides support services to both incoming and outgoing exchange students. OICE also works closely with various schools and centers at the University on strategic partnerships in joint academic and research collaborations.

Incoming Students
Sun Yat-sen University currently has entered into formal exchange agreements with numerous institutions both on university level and school level. Check the Partner List to see if your institution already has an exchange agreement with Sun Yat-sen University. If you are interested in participating in one of these exchange programs, please contact the Exchange Coordinator at your home institution.
If your university is not among those listed as a Sun Yat-sen University Exchange Partner, you may qualify to attend Sun Yat-sen University as a visiting student or you can consider transferring to Sun Yat-sen University as a full-time degree student. For international visiting students and degree students, please refer to the following website: http://iso.sysu.edu.cn/; For the handbook for international students please check the attachments at the bottom of this page.

Outgoing Students
Sun Yat-sen University offers over 150 exchange programs world-wide both on university level and school level, allowing SYSU students to spend one or two terms abroad at an accredited partner institution and receive academic credits for their studies abroad.
Why study abroad?

Going abroad is a life-changing experience! Studying abroad provides an opportunity to travel, explore other cultures first-hand, learn a new language, develop your skills and experience in a way that a traditional classroom setting may not provide, and make friends around the world.
