On August 11, an intensive English training program, designed for the 2017 freshmen, was started at International Campus to help the students adapt to the all English teaching environment. Students were provided the opportunity to voluntarily participate in the program according to their individual English proficiency levels.
Student recruitment is a success for fall 2017 semester as a result of the overall International Campus effort. A total of 234 undergraduates, as well as 143 masters and 20 doctoral students were admitted, among whom, 230 are domestic students and 167 come from overseas.
