2018 Foundation Program


The objective of the Foundation Program is to prepare international students for undergraduate admission to the Shanghai University of Finance and Economics.

If you meet the required standard for both Chinese language proficiency and knowledge of your chosen major after one year of learning (about 50 credit courses), you may enter into the sophomore level. The credits earned in the foundation program may be carried forward into the second year of your undergraduate program should you graduate successfully from the foundation program.

If you have never learned Chinese, you may also start learning at SUFE with our Chinese Language Program before you participate in our Foundation Program or Undergraduate Program.
