As one of the earliest universities in Chongqing which have the major of Teaching Chinese to Speakers of Other Languages(TCSOL) , we started to recruit international students in 2002. We established the Confucius Institute with Abomey Callaway University in Benin，the first HSK online examination centre in southwest China, and the Benin Research Centre which is the National and Regional Research Centre authorized by the Ministry of Education. We provide a range of undergraduate and master programs in TCSOL and Chinese language learning programs.
In the context of the “Belt and Road initiative” and the construction of Chongqing’s inland open highlands, we take advantages of university’s education in transportation and civil engineering, highlight the characteristics of “TCSOL plus Transportation”, offer courses like Engineering Chinese, Chinese Writing of Engineering Letters, International Engineering Negotiations and so on, and cultivate high-level applied talents with broad international vision, good Chinese cultural literacy, solid foundation in Chinese language, and high professional abilities.
