Why choose Ocean University of China ?
Ocean University of China (OUC) is a comprehensive university with particular strengths in oceanography and fisheries science. We have four campuses – Yushan, Fushan, Laoshan and Huangdao, which is currently under construction – all of which are united under our motto “Ocean embraces all streams; exploring promises reaching far.” OUC was one of the first universities approved to confer undergraduate and postgraduate degrees by the State Academic Degree Committee and it now offers courses in science, engineering, agronomy (fisheries), pharmaceutics, economics, management, liberal arts, law, education, history, and art. In 2017 it was included in China’s plan of building “Double First-Rate” universities, having previously also been on the list of “Project 985” universities (a list of China’s top 40 universities) and “Project 211” institutions (of China’s top 100 universities). It is now the recipient of significant national and provincial support and funding, which supports its bid to become a world class university. The 21st century is an ocean-focused century and, inspired by this, our goal is to develop a high-level university with international visibility which will lay the foundations for becoming a research-oriented university as we approach our 100th anniversary. By 2025, OUC will be further developed into a top-level comprehensive research university with a strong emphasis on marine sciences. Building on this, OUC will press ahead with reform and innovation to become a world-class university with distinct characteristics by the middle of this century. The combination of educating the next generation of thinkers and leaders and of investing in research supports our on-going aim of making China increasingly strong through rapid and sustainable development.
