Profile

Learn Chinese at Top Chinese UniversitiesDalian University of Technology (DUT) is located in the beautiful coastal city of Dalian, Liaoning Province.  Dalian University of Technology is one of China's key universities under the administration of the Ministry of Education.  The university has developed into a comprehensive university of science and technology, focusing on the engineering field, as well as sciences and economic management sciences, social sciences and law. 

Study Mandarin Chinese in ChinaDUT enjoys a good reputation for its efficient management and good environment for study.  The school is known for its motto:  "Unity, Enterprise, Realism and Originality".  DUT has fostered and trained more than 100,000 professionals in its long history.  Now, with the support of “the 985 Project” and “the 211 Project”, DUT is engaged in grasping the historic opportunity of rejuvenating the old northeast industrial base, and implementing a talent-training strategy in the hope of building itself into a world-famous research-oriented university. 

Learn Chinese at Top Chinese UniversitiesDalian University of Technology has established cooperation with almost 140 universities in China and abroad, including Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan.  The university has also been participating in academic exchanges and cooperation with more than 70 institutions of higher education and scientific research in more than 20 countries and regions.  At present, DUT is focusing more on enhancing its reputation around the world and becoming a more international university.

Programs

The university's main focus is on engineering, but it also has faculties of management, education and humanities.  At the moment, the Chinese department has more than 300 students enrolled, including students from the US, UK, Germany, France, Russia, Korea, Thailand and several African countries.  Remarkable achievements made in the programs offered and the extra-curricular activities provided are warmly received by both the teaching staff and the students, attracting more and more newcomers to enroll in the school's programs. 

Two types of Mandarin language programs are offered, intensive classes (2 – 6 weeks and three months) and regular classes (one semester and one year).  The intensive courses are held during the summer and winter vacations, starting from mid-January or mid-July.  Class times are flexible, to suit the particular needs of students, and each class has an average of ten to fifteen students. 

The regular courses start twice a year, in March and September.  Students are placed by an entrance test, with class sizes limited to an average of 15 people in each.  This provides every student with sufficient individual training time with the teacher in class.  Classes range from elementary, through intermediate and advanced, with compulsory courses including listening, writing, speaking, reading and grammar.  Classes are from Monday to Friday, with 24 contact hours for compulsory courses.  Mornings are dedicated to taught sessions, with one afternoon a week also spent in class. 

The university also offers preparatory classes for international students who are interested in taking the HSK (Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi), also known as the Chinese proficiency test.  The test is designed to measure the Chinese proficiency level of non-native speakers.  HSK is equivalent to the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) and offered at three levels: Basic, Elementary-Intermediate and Advanced. 

DUT also offers a wide range of elective courses such as tai chi, Chinese calligraphy, Chinese culture, Chinese History, audio-visual speaking practice and cooking.  All elective courses are held in the afternoon.  Out of the classroom, speech contests in Chinese supervised by the teachers are organized once every semester with all students participating.

There are more than 40 teaching staff in the Chinese language department, all of whom are thoroughly trained and highly experienced in teaching Chinese as a second language.  In addition to the full-time teachers of Chinese employed for the Chinese programs, lecturers and professors are invited from the university's Departments of Chinese Language and Mass Media Journalism to teach courses for international students.
