Fudan University was founded in 1905 and is one of China’s most elite universities. The name “Fudan” (复旦) literally means “heavenly light shines day after day” and implies inexhaustible self-reliance and industriousness.  Fudan confers bachelor’s degrees in 70 academic disciplines and graduate degrees in 225 fields. The university has an enrollment of more than 27,000 full-time degree candidates; another 20,000 studying part-time; and the second-largest foreign student population in China—some 2,800 students from around the world.
