Introduction to SDU
2019-01-09

Shandong University is one of China’s first institutions of higher learning. It was established in 1864 and initially called the Tengchow College of Liberal Arts (Dengzhou Wenhuiguan). Here the medical program originated, which was the predecessor of Cheeloo University. This was the start of modern Chinese higher education.

Shandong University was the first university in China to be established that was run in accordance with a chartered constitution. This university Charter, the first of its kind in Chinese history, was hailed as an exemplary model by the Qing government and this model was used in the founding of other imperial universities. The Charter not only paved the way for modern education in China, but also served as the blueprint for all the other modern institutes of higher education which were emerging at that time.

In 1901, Yuan Shikai, the Imperial Governor of Shandong in the Qing Dynasty, submitted the ‘’The establishment of the provisional Constitution of Shandong Imperial College” for Emperor Guangxu’s royal approval.

The history of Shandong University is closely connected to the big changes that modern China has undergone. Since its founding, Shandong University has gone through several stages of growth and development. In the beginning it started as Shandong Imperial College and subsequently changed to National Qingdao University, National Shandong University and later Shandong University. Shandong University as we know it today, grew out of a merger between Shandong University, Shandong Medical University and Shandong Industrial University in 2000. For more than a century, it has gone through name changes, reconstruction, mergers, and relocation, making unique contributions to the current higher education system in China.

Shandong University is an important university with a long history, a variety of disciplines, strong academics specifically in literature and history. It is a part of Project 211 and Project 985. These are two prestigious national projects that support the development of high-quality universities. After nearly sixteen years of growth since the merger of the three universities that constitute modern day Shandong University, the university has become a research-oriented university. This has remarkably improved the educational quality and competitiveness of the university. This improvement in quality, has greatly increased both its international standing and its ability to serve the country.

Shandong University is one of the largest universities in China with more than 60000 full-time students; among which 40000+ are undergraduates, 20000+ are postgraduates; more than 4000 full-time teachers; and 8 campuses in 3 different cities (Jinan, Qingdao, Weihai)
