It ranks top 10% among all the higher education institutions in China and ranks 10th in Zhejiang province. The university was first established in 1933 with donation from Mr. Huang Suchu, a renowned industrialist in Wenzhou. Six other schools were merged in its history to form the present Wenzhou University, which presents a rich cultural atmosphere and fine educational tradition. The university is among the first batch of state-approved Chinese Language and Culture Education Base; it is designated by the Chinese Ministry of Education (MOE) to accept Chinese Government Scholarship students; it is also authorized to accept overseas Chinese students and students from Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan. Apart from the Chinese Government Scholarship, international applicants can also apply for Confucius Institute Scholarship, Zhejiang Provincial Government Scholarship, and Wenzhou University Scholarship for International Students.

Its academic programs cover 9 discipline areas including literature, science, engineering, law, education, economics, history, management and art. It offers 45 postgraduate programs and 55 undergraduate programs. It has almost 30,000 undergraduates, 1,000 postgraduates, 300 international students, and around 13,000 part-time students annually for continuing education.

As of December 2014, the university has established exchange and cooperation relations with over 60 universities and research institutes from about 20 countries and regions such as the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, the Netherlands, Japan and Korea.

Superior Location

Wenzhou is a modern coastal city advantageously located near the East China Sea and halfway up China's mainland coastline. The mid-subtropical monsoon climate of Wenzhou is featured with four distinctive seasons, moderate temperatures and a pleasant weather. It is conveniently connected with other cities in China, with only 1 hour to Shanghai, 2 hours to Beijing, Guangzhou or Hong Kong by air. Its main campuses are situated in Wenzhou's Chashan University Town which is surrounded by green mountains and picturesque water views. The university is only half an hour away from both the train station and the airport. The fast growing export trade and energetic private economy bring Wenzhou University great opportunities to collaborate with institutions and enterprises both domestically and overseas.

Outward-looking Programs

The university has always attached great importance to international students education and all the 55 undergraduate programs and 45 postgraduate programs are open to international students. Considering the limited Chinese language ability of some international applicants, WZU offers international students English medium program as shown in the table below.
