Shantou University

established in 1981

Shantou University, a key comprehensive university under the provincial Project 211 program in Guangdong, was founded in 1981 with the approval of the State Council. As the only public university in the world that receives long-term funding from the Li Ka Shing Foundation, it is jointly supported by the Ministry of Education (MOE), the Guangdong Provincial Government and the Li Ka Shing Foundation. Shantou University is located in Shantou, a city in Southeast China. Surrounded by mountain and water, the university campus is adorned by elegant and artistic buildings.

Shantou University takes full advantage of the support from the Li Ka Shing Foundation and the ties with overseas universities to strengthen academic exchange and cooperation. Distinguished scholars from first-class universities at home and abroad have been invited to present seminars or lectures to the University’s undergraduate students, so as to broaden their academic horizon. Among the scholars are Nobel laureates Chen Ning Yang, Tsung-dao Lee, Chao Chung Ting, James Mirless, Steven Chu, Barry J. Marshall and Mo Yanas, well as other world-class celebrities including Shiing-Shen Chern, Shing-Tung Yau, Yuh-kang Pan and David D. Ho. Some famous scientists from well-known universities like Cambridge University, University of California at Berkeley (UCB) and University of Western Australia were also recruited as honorary professors, chair professors or adjunct professors to deliver academic lectures at the university.


Under the auspice of the Li Ka Shing Foundation, Shantou University has become one of the few universities in Mainland China that awards full scholarships to overseas exchange students. The university has established close academic ties with nearly 20 universities in such countries as the United States, United Kingdom, France, Japan, Russia, Australia and Germany, and launched exchange programs for undergraduates and graduate students.
