New international students from Egypt, Iran, Australia, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Japan and 53 other nations arrived at the International College of UCAS (IC-UCAS) at the Zhongguancun campus to register for the 2014--2015 academic year on 1 September.
A total of 9 UCAS colleges and 71 CAS institutes enrolled international students this year, with a remarkable growth both in number and in quality. Most of them are scholarship awardees with support from the government or international organizations.
IC-UCAS has been operating since 2013. This is the second year for IC-UCAS to enroll international students. Following the 2013--2014 academic year, IC-UCAS received much positive feedback from CAS institutes. Considerable progress has been made concerning enrolling and cultivating international students, organizing international academic activities and establishing various educational exchange platforms.
