Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech) is a public university founded in the Shenzhen Special Economic Zone of China.
SUSTech offers an unparalleled learning and research experience at the scientific and technological frontiers.
SUSTech offers unprecedented opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students to work alongside the faculty to explore and tackle both fundamental and practical problems.
The Global Engagement Office (GEO) is responsible for forming and implementing a coherent strategy to promote the University’s international development and global profile.
The undergraduate admission of SUSTech adopts comprehensive evaluation enrollment mode based on national college entrance examination.The graduate admission of SUSTech currently adopts joint training mode.
The main duties of SUSTCEF is to accept the donations from the domestic and foreign associations, enterprises, trading companies and individuals, and establish the funding projects depending on the demands of the university and the wishes of the donors.
The undergraduate admission of SUSTech adopts comprehensive evaluation enrollment mode based on national college entrance examination, the SUSTech autonomous ability test scores and the high school proficiency test. The college entrance examination achievement accounts for 60%, SUSTech, autonomous ability test scores account for 30% (interview scores accounts for 5%) and the high school proficiency test accounts for the final 10%, ranking from highest to lowest based on candidate's "631" comprehensive score.
Comprehensive evaluation enrolment mode has eliminated disadvantages such as "only scores statement," "college entrance examination decides one life" and "one-sided examination-oriented education" in traditional systems of examination and enrolment, which is conducive to selecting excellent students with subject expertise and innovation potential. The enrolment mode was firstly implemented by SUSTech in 2012, leading the reform process of national college examination system.
The new students’ enrolment of SUSTech strictly obeys the comprehensive evaluation enrolment mode and isn’t determined by college entrance examination achievement. We can see from the admission results that freshmen of SUSTech have a higher score in ability test, excellent grade of a high school achievement test, and good interview performance; their college entrance examination achievements can reach middle level of "985" universities. Only from the analysis of college entrance examination achievements, the average scores of first-year students from majority provinces ranking in top 2% of science students. Different from the way that only based on college entrance examination achievements, SUSTech will not enrol students who have high grades but without great ability test scores; the number is about 20% of all admissions. Meanwhile, SUSTech will enrol some students who have great ability test scores, high innovation ability, even though they do not have prominent college entrance examination achievements; the number is close to 20% of all admissions.
