Hebei University is one of the top universities within Hebei Province. It is situated in Baoding, a city with a long history and rich cultural heritage in China, within easy access of Beijing. Hebei University was founded in Tianjin in 1921. Since its foundation, Hebei University has undergone successive changes in its name. It used to be Tianjin Industrial & Commercial Institute; it later became Jingu College, then Tianjin Normal School, and Tianjin Normal University for a while. In 1960, it was transformed in to a comprehensive university with its current name Hebei University. Then in 1970, it was moved to Baoding.


As a comprehensive university, Hebei University offers a variety of courses covering a wide range of fields, including Philosophy, Economics, Law, Education, Literature, History, Science and Technology, Engineering, Medicine and Management. The 15 colleges offer 56 specialized undergraduate courses leading to bachelor's degrees. The university can also award master's degrees in forty-four subjects and doctorates in six fields. Ten of our specialized subjects and two of our laboratories are at the provincial-appointed level. Chinese Language & Literature and History are appointed as the bases for research and cultivation of talents in liberal parts by the province. Currently the university has an enrollment of 17,862, including 845 graduates and 17,000 undergraduates and two-year students. 16,972 adult students and 46 international students are also studying at the university.

There is 2,100 teaching and administrative staff, of which nearly half are doing teaching and research work, including three members of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and 550 professors and associate professors. Among them, professor Yin Xiangchu, a member of CAS, takes the lead in the systematic study of the locust and his work entitled, ‘The Habitat of the Locust Order and a Bibliography of References’ is considered the most exclusive and systematic in this field. Prof. ong Daxiang, who is renowned as an expert in the study of spiders in China and the author of ‘The Arachnids of China’. He is acclaimed as the chief scholar in his field. Professor Wei Chunjiang, a distinguished microbiologist, is considered to be the authority on the study of lichen by his fellow scholars at home and abroad. In addition, the study of the Song Dynasty, headed by Prof. Qi Xia, is among the best in China. Qi's work ‘The Economic History of the Song Dynasty’, lays the cornerstone for the study of economy in ancient China. The study of the history of education in foreign countries, led by Prof. Teng Dachun, has contributed enormously to works in this field. Teng's book, ‘The History of Education in the United States’ is one of the most important achievements in this field. In addition to these eminent scholars, the university also boasts a staff of talented young teachers who are beginning to display their talents in their own academic fields. They are the backbone of teaching and research.


The University campus covers an area of over 700 acres. It is well equipped with first-class facilities, notably in the areas of science and technology. The University library has a collection of 2,770,000 books and 5,000 periodicals published at home and abroad. It has one of the largest collections of rare books among the universities in China. The University museum houses more than 8,000 historical relics over 70 of which enjoy the highest degree of national protection. Furthermore, the museum also possesses some rare specimens of animals and plants. As one of the first 100 universities and colleges which entered the Chinese Education and Research Net (CERNET), [the net of Hebei University – HEBUNET] is on its way to rapid development. With the support of the Municipal Party Committee and the local government of Baoding, Hebei University launched ambitious plans for expansion. We have recently purchased a further 1,545 acres of land in Baoding and are about to invest RMB 800,000,000 to establish a new and modernized campus in accordance with the modern theories of higher education. The plans for the new campus have already been completed and the construction programs are under revision and will be started within a few days.


The University insists that scientific research should be combined with the development of the local economy. In the light of this principle, the University has contributed to the development of the economy, the advancement of science and technology and the progress of society in Hebei Province. The academic exchange between Hebei University and the universities and institutions in China and overseas, is brisk and extensive. Taking full advantage of its convenient location close to Beijing & Tianjin, the University has started a “bring-in” program. Its purpose is to invite members of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Chinese Academy of Social Sciences and other nationally distinguished scholars to give lectures. We have also reached agreements with ten sister universities and institutes in Japan, Russia, Mongolia and the USA to exchange students and established friendly relationships with many universities and institutes in Canada, Australia, South Korea, and Germany.


In the last few years, over a hundred scholars and experts from more than ten countries have been invited to Hebei University for teaching, short-term lecturing, and joint research. Especially since 1997, the University has held a number of important and influential international academic conferences and symposia, which includes short-term and long-term language training, bachelor-degree, master-degree and doctor-degree programs.
