Ocean University (OUC) was selected for our program’s location in large part due to its national stature in China.
Ocean University is a comprehensive university with 22 colleges and departments with 71 undergraduate programs. The University has over 24,500 students including 5,115 masters and doctoral students and 11,691 undergraduate students and 1500 international students.
OUC has three campuses, Yushan campus, Fushan (Maidao) campus and Laoshan campus (new campus).
In 1998, President Jiang Zemin declared that “China must have a number of world-class universities in the 21st Century” so Project 985 was launched to promote the development and reputation of a select group of nine universities. Today, 39 universities receive special recognition and financial support from the Chinese government as participants in Project 985. Ocean University is one of these Project 985 members.
OUC is under the direct administration of the State Ministry of Education (MOE), China’s highest administrative education based in Beijing. It is the agency of the State Council which regulates all aspects of the educational system in mainland China.
Today, OUC has unique strengths in Marine Science and Fisheries, which also offers complete courses in Science, Engineering, Agronomy (Fisheries), Medicine (Pharmaceutics), Liberal Arts, Management, Law and Economics.
