Zhaoqing University is situated in Zhaoqing City, a national tourist destination famous for its green hills and limestone crags. Zhaoqing is part of Guangdong Province’s Pearl River Delta, an early gateway into south China and an area with strong cultural traditions and educational foundations. Rich tourism resources, modern agriculture and trade and commerce make it a thriving region.
Zhaoqing enjoys fast and frequent road, rail and ferry links to Hong Kong and the provincial capital, Guangzhou. To the west of the city is Dinghu Mountain, one of Guangdong’s four famous peaks, and to the north is Star Lake, said to share the beauty of Guilin and Hangzhou’s West Lake.
The Only Higher Learning Institution in the Zhaoqing Area: Founded in 1970, Zhaoqing University is a state-run establishment and enrolls students on four-year degree programmes. It has 1,422 members of staff and 22,701 full-time students. The university is committed to promoting social and economic development in Zhaoqing and its neighbouring Yunfu district, both of which have a population of over seven million.
