Chinese Government Scholarship Application Guide of Nanning Normal University


Nanning Normal University, located in Nanning, the capital of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, grew out of Guangxi Teacher Training College, which was founded in 1953. Ratified by China State Council in December 1978, it was upgraded as a Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region-governed general undergraduate normal college which practices full-time undergraduate programs. Ratified by the Academic Degrees Committee of the State Council in 1998, it was approved as a Master’s Degree authorized unit. In 2013, it was approved to be Guangxi Project Construction Unit for the New Doctor Degree Conferring Unit. On November 30, 2018, with the approval of the Ministry of Education, it was renamed Nanning Normal University (NNNU).

NNNU now has four campuses: Mingxiu, Changgang, Wuhe and Wuming Campus, covering an area of 3,383.1 mu (about 560 acres), with 22 schools and one jointly-run independent college. NNNU sets up 10 discipline categories:: Philosophy, Economy, Law, Pedagogy, Literature, History, Sciences, Engineering, Management and Art.

There are 70 undergraduate programs, 17 master’s programs of the first-level disciplines, 1 master’s program of the second-level discipline, and 13 professional master’s programs. NNNU now has more than 1,200 full-time teachers of which more than 1,000 are of or above Master’s Degree. The structure of faculty has been constantly optimized, with more than 600 teachers with senior professional and technical positions. There are 44 doctoral supervisors and 499 master supervisors. There are 22,204 full-time undergraduate students, 2,954 postgraduate students, 230 junior college students and 287 preparatory students.

NNNU adheres to open and cooperative school-running mode and has established partnerships with more than 70 colleges, universities and other educational institutions from over 20 countries and regions. A talent-development model by combining Sino-foreign cooperation in running schools and mutual credit-recognition has taken shape to gradually establish China-ASEAN talents training system based on cooperation, opening up and mutual exchanges. NNNU jointly organized the undergraduate education program of “Tourism Management” with Cardiff Metropolitan University, jointly established the undergraduate major-- Electronic Information Engineering with National Chi Nan University, and jointly built Thai Language and Culture Centers and China-Malaysia Overseas Chinese Literature Research Centers and so on with universities in Thailand, Malaysia and other countries. Many programs including “Chinese Government Scholarship”, “Guangxi Government Scholarship for ASEAN Students”, “Silk Road Scholarship”, “Guangxi Chinese Education Base”, encourage foreign students to pursue education in China, which has continuously led to an increased number of international students to NNNU.
