Celebrating GDUFS’s Proud Past and Fantastic Future!
-- Not only celebrating the past…
Throughout 2015, Guangdong University of Foreign Studies (GDUFS) will be celebrating 50 years of learning by recognizing key events, people and achievements in our short yet remarkable history. Visit our 50th anniversary website (http://gw50.gdufs.edu.cn) and you will find stories from our past, the latest news, and details of our plans to mark the anniversary year. We will be looking at key events over the past 50 years and covering the many successes we have been so fortunate to share with students - both past and present - in business, industry, science and the other key education areas GDUFS is famous for. We trust you will find our year-long celebration fascinating, uplifting and illuminating - and we'd love you to get involved. Please share your stories, experiences, and thoughts on what we might do in the next 50 years. We encourage you to join in the celebrations in this auspicious year while the grand ceremony falls in early November 2015.
Today’s GDUFS is just the beginning. As we celebrate 50 years of excellence, we are already looking forward to our centenary in 2065. The University attaches great importance to developing academic and cultural exchanges with overseas institutions. At present, it has established links with over 260 universities, academic institutions or cultural organizations in regions and countries around the world. With 18 foreign language majors provided, GDUFS is one of the few universities in South China that offer such a variety of language teaching.
The University is one of the most prestigious universities in China today. Specializing in international studies, GDUFS is one of the key institutions of higher learning in Guangdong Province. It was established through the merger of the Guangzhou Institute of Foreign Languages, the Guangzhou Institute of Foreign Trade and others.
The University is based in Guangzhou, a city with a long history, a rich cultural legacy and the economic hub of Southern China. It boasts three campuses, the main one lying at the foot of Baiyun Mountain. Currently the university offers 61 undergraduate majors, which fall into eight disciplines: literature, economics, management, law, engineering, science, education and art. GDUFS is home to two national key research centers, one for research in humanities and social sciences, and the other for training students of minor languages.
