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 SUSTech Education Foundation consists of board of directors, board of supervisors and secretariat. The board of directors is the top of the power structure of the foundation; the board of supervisors is responsible to check finance and accounting information in accordance with law and regulations; secretariat is the standing administrative unit of the foundation, which is responsible to the daily work of the foundation under the leading of leaders in the board of directors.
The undergraduate admission of SUSTC adopts comprehensive evaluation enrollment mode based on national college entrance examination, in which the college entrance examination achievement accounts for 60%, SUSTC autonomous ability test scores accounts for 30% (interview scores accounts for 5%), the high school proficiency test accounts for 10%, ranking from high to low based on candidate's "631" comprehensive score. Comprehensive evaluation enrollment 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 enrollment, which is conducive to selecting excellent students with subject expertise and innovation potential. The enrollment mode was firstly implemented by SUSTC in 2012, leading the reform process of national college examination system.
The new students’ enrollment of SUSTC strictly obeys the comprehensive evaluation enrollment mode and isn’t determined by college entrance examination achievement. We can see from the admission results that freshmen of SUSTC have higher score in ability test, excellent grade of 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 freshmen from majority provinces ranking in top 2% of science students. Different from the way that only based on college entrance examination achievements, SUSTC will not enroll students who have high grades but without great ability test scores; the number is about 20% of all admissions. Meanwhile, SUSTC will enroll 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.
