Fudan University, the first institution of higher education set up by Chinese people, has grown into a leading comprehensive research university with 12 disciplines in humanities, social sciences, science and engineering, medicine, art and more since its founding in 1905.

Fudan is a member of the elite C9 League, also known as China's Ivy league. In the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2023, Fudan ranked 51st among global universities and fourth among Chinese universities.

The university has 15,303 undergraduate students, 36,690 graduate students, and 2,535 international students and 3,621 teaching and research staff.

Fudan University was one of China's first universities to accept international students. It has created more than 50 English-taught programs for undergraduate and graduate students and has four campuses in Handan, Fenglin, Zhangjiang, and Jiangwan in Shanghai.

Fudan upholds the values of patriotism, solidarity, service, and sacrifice. The university's academic nature is marked by its time-honored heritage of academic freedom and unrestricted exploration: "rectification of righteousness, illustration of virtue and indifference to honor and reward".

The university has collaborated with more than 350 universities and institutes in over 40 countries and regions over the years. Every year, around 8,000 of its faculty and students travel abroad, and the university hosts about 100 international conferences.
