Fudan University (simplified Chinese: 复旦大学;
traditional Chinese: 復旦大學; pinyin: Fùdàn Dàxué), located in Shanghai, is
one of the most prestigious and selective universities in China. Founded in 1905, shortly before the end of
China’s imperial Qing dynasty, Fudan was the first institution of higher education to be
founded by a Chinese person, renowned modern educator Ma Xiangbo.Fudan is a C9 League university
and a Chinese Ministry of Education Class A Double First Class University. Fudan is now composed of four campuses in
Shanghai – Handan (邯郸), Fenglin (枫林), Zhangjiang (张江), and Jiangwan (江湾)
– which share the same central administration. In the 2018 QS Asian University Ranking, Fudan
ranks 2nd in China and No. 7 in Asia.==History==
Fudan University, formerly romanized as Fuh Tan, was founded as Fudan Public School in
1905, by Ma Xiangbo, SJ, who had resigned from Aurora University. The two Chinese characters Fu (复) and Dan
(旦), meaning both “(heavenly light shines) day after day” and “Aurora Revived”, were
chosen by Ma on the recommendation of Yu Youren, from the Confucian Classic Shangshu Dazhuan
(Chinese: 尚书大传): “Itinerant as the twilight, sun glows and moon luminesces” (Chinese:
日月光华,旦复旦兮). The university motto comes from Analects Book
19.6 (Chinese: 博学而笃志,切问而近思), which means “to learn extensively and adhere
to aspirations, to inquire earnestly and reflect with self-application”. In 1911, during the Xinhai Revolution, the
college was occupied as headquarters of the Guangfu Army and closed down for almost one
year.In 1917, Fudan Public School became a private university named the Private Fudan
University, and also had a middle school and university-preparatory school. In 1929, Fudan reorganized its departments,
expanding to include departments of journalism, municipals, law, and education.After the Japanese
invasion of China in 1937, Fudan moved with the Kuomintang government to the inland city
of Chongqing, the wartime Chinese capital. On 25 December 1941, the First Meeting of
Fifth Conference of the Highest Executive Authority of the National Government of the
Republic of China voted to change Fudan University (Chongqing) to a public university with Wu
Nanxuan as its president. Fudan University then became National Fudan
University. After the end of World War II, it moved back
to Shanghai.After the founding of the People’s Republic of China in 1949, Fudan lost its
“National” appellation and became Fudan University to reflect the fact that all universities
under the new socialist state would be public. Fudan was the first university to be reorganized
by the new government in 1952 and modeled on Soviet education. The original departments were changed, with
arts and sciences departments from at least ten other universities in eastern China being
added.In the late 1970s, after the Cultural Revolution, the university was converted to
a modern, comprehensive university.Fudan University and Shanghai Medical University merged on
27 April 2000.==Institutions=====Organizations===

Undergraduate program====Fudan University’s undergraduate program is
extremely selective. Fudan is one of the five universities in China
whose undergraduate programs are the hardest for students to get in: less than 0.2% of
National College Entrance Examination (“Gaokao”) takers can make it (As a comparison, the five
choosiest Ivy League schools in 2012 let in three times the percentage (0.6%) of SAT-takers.).Fudan
has reconstructed its course system to suit education goals. A course scheme of general education, specialized
education and basic education in arts and sciences has been implemented. Encompassing a complete and comprehensive
range of disciplines, the courses of general education enable students to receive education
in diverse fields. All of the 70-plus undergraduate majors of
Fudan have been put into seven general categories so that students can benefit on a broader
scale from the systematic discipline training. According to the Education Scheme for Arts
and Sciences, course modules are determined by discipline systems and course suits, and
credits by course modules. In this sense, Fudan provides students with
more options for their college studies. In contrast with the traditional syllabus,
the new module has appropriately decreased the gross credits and class hours. Along with minor programs and extracurricular
academic activities, it contributes greatly to the intellectual development of undergraduate
students, exposing them to a wider range of knowledge.====Graduate program====
The Graduate School of Fudan University was established on 6 November 1984 and the Graduate
School of Shanghai Medical University on 25 January 1985. Both were among the first 22 graduate schools
after China’s universities officially resumed enrolling graduate students. With the merger of Shanghai Medical University
and Fudan University in April 2000, the two graduate schools were joined to be a new Graduate
School of Fudan University. Therefore, a comprehensive graduate education
structure is formed with disciplines in humanities, law, sciences, engineering, medicine, and
management.====International students====
Starting from the 1950s, Fudan has enrolled international students – one of the first
few institutions in China to do so. Since then, Fudan has accepted and trained
over 10,000 foreign students from 100 countries and regions worldwide. At the end of 2006, there were 2,812 international
students studying at Fudan University, ranked number 2 in the nation. Half of them were actively pursuing degrees,
the rest were general visiting scholars. In addition, Fudan enrolls over 1700 short-term
students each year. The international student programs consist
of degree programs and non-degree programs. The university has also established a Bachelor
of Arts program called the “Chinese language for international students” and there have
been seven groups of graduates. Besides all levels of Chinese language teaching,
the university has opened courses such as Chinese literature, Chinese history, Chinese
economy, Chinese philosophy, and Chinese law for interested international students. These courses will introduce students to basic
knowledge of Chinese social economy, history, and culture, according to their different
requirements. In addition, several graduate programs are
offered in English. For instance Master of Business Administration,
Master of Public Health, as well as other programs offered in conjunction with partner
universities abroad. The university’s programs in medicine leading
to the Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) degree are also available to international
students. The International Students Office is responsible
for the management of all international students at Fudan University.==Reputation and rankings==
The QS World University Rankings (2015/16) considered it 43rd worldwide while it was
11th in the independent regional QS Asian University Rankings (2016) and 3rd in QS BRICS
University Rankings (2016), respectively. Further, ARWU (2016) put it at a position
among 101–150th globally. It is among the top five universities in mainland
China in all of the above league tables. In the 2020 QS Global University Ranking,
Fudan University ranks 3rd in China and No. 40 in the world.==Campus==Fudan has established a campus structure called
“one-body-two-wings”, where the body is Handan (邯鄲) campus and Jiangwan (江灣) campus,
which are only 2 miles (3.2 km) apart, and the two wings are Fenglin (楓林) campus
and Zhangjiang (張江) campus. All four campuses are in downtown Shanghai
and share the same central administration.===Handan campus===
Handan campus, the main campus of Fudan, is located in Yangpu District, Shanghai. It contains the majority of the schools and
departments. Freshman undergraduates live on this campus. Handan campus consists of four sub-campuses,
namely the headquarters campus, the south campus, the north campus, and the east campus.===Fenglin campus===
Fudan University Shanghai Medical College, or Medical Center of Fudan University (former
Shanghai Medical University) is at Fenglin campus, located in Xuhui District, Shanghai. In July 2014, the campus began a 2-year large-scale
construction project. About 4000 students move out of the old campus
for the construction and in July 2017 students came back to it.===Zhangjiang campus===
Zhangjiang campus is located in Shanghai’s Zhangjiang Hi-Tech Park, Pudong District. It comprises the School of Microelectronics,
the School of Computer science and technology, the School of Software, and the School of
Pharmacy.===Jiangwan campus===
Only 2 miles (3.2 km) apart from Handan campus, Jiangwan campus is a new campus of Fudan University. The School of Law has moved to Jiangwan, and
other schools will follow, including the School of Life Science, the College of Foreign Language
and Literature, and School of Social Development and Public Policy.==Notable alumni==Since 1952, Fudan University has a total of
95 academicians alumni, second only to Peking University and Tsinghua University in China. After the Cultural Revolution, Fudan has also
educated more than 60 alumni being full professors in TOP15 American/British universities, which
makes Fudan the second highest Chinese university in this criteria.Today, associations organized
by Fudan’s alumni can be found in the United States, Japan, Australia, Canada, Taiwan,
Hong Kong, and mainland China. Educationally, academically and economically,
Fudan alumni’s strengthened ties with their alma mater are playing a significant role
in the development of the University. The routine services of these alumni associations
include: updating contact lists, holding conferences, conducting Sino-foreign cultural exchanges,
and keeping contact with other alumni associations throughout the world. Li Deng-hui, ex-president of Fudan instructed
the students to unite, serve and sacrifice. A well-known 77-year-old architect from the
Alumni Association in Taipei also said that strength lies in unity and that Fudan alumni
are expected to serve as an example in the increasing mergers of higher learning schools
in mainland China. A worldwide gathering is held annually in
order to promote the relations between the alumni all over the world. Notable Fudan alumni are listed below.===Government and Politics===

Partnerships==Fudan University is a member of the Consortium
of Academic Stewards for The Scholar Ship. The University is also a member of China Center
Austria and partner of the Austrian Business School SMBS. Fudan University is also a member of Universitas
21, which is an association of leading universities worldwide. Universitas 21 grants members of staff and
students from the university many exchange chances and opportunities to research abroad. To seek more support from its alumni in the
US and cement its collaboration with Yale University, Fudan University launched the
Fudan University Education Development Foundation in New York in February 2008. It was the first time a Chinese university
had launched such an initiative in the US. In 1995, Fudan established the Nordic Centre
in Shanghai, a joint platform for research and education with 14 universities from Denmark,
Finland, Norway, and Sweden. By 2012, the Nordic Centre Fudan has 27 member
institutions in 5 Nordic countries.In 1996, Fudan School of Management started a joint
Master of Management (later MBA) program with BI Norwegian Business School. The program, inaugurated by then Norwegian
Prime Minister Gro Harlem Brundtland, is the longest continually operating international
business school partnership in China. In 2002, a joint venture was created between
the Olin Business School (Washington University in St. Louis) and the School of Management
at Fudan University. At the time, it was one of the first U.S.-Sino
joint MBA programs in China. Eight years later, according to The Financial
Times’ 2010 rankings, the Washington University-Fudan University EMBA Program was ranked as one
of the top 20 international executive MBA programs worldwide. Also, for the fifth consecutive year, it was
hailed as the best program in mainland China.In 2011, Fudan became part of the Tyndall Centre
network, a research network centered on climate science and climate policy research. Fudan Tyndall Centre is funded with a 15-year
commitment by the Chinese central government and the Shanghai City government. The UK launch of the Fudan Tyndall Centre
alliance took place in Norwich in May 2011 when Professor Academician Yuliang Yang was
awarded an Honorary Degree by the University of East AngliaIn Germany, the Fudan University
cooperates with the Goethe-University in Frankfurt/Main. Both cities are linked by a long-lasting partnership
agreement. The university also established partnerships
with the Freie Universität Berlin, the University of Cologne, the University of Tübingen and
the University of Konstanz.===Exchange programs===
