In terms of the number of the projects granted by the National Natural Science Foundation of China, YZU is among the top universities in Jiangsu Province, and goes into the top 40 in the whole country. Since the Ninth Five-Year Plan Period of the country, more than 300 research accomplishments in YZU have received awards at ministerial or provincial-level. The joint research project with the Chinese Academy of Science, “Trans-genetic Somatic Cloned Goat”, was bulletined as the No. 1 Fundamental Research News Report in 1999. “Precise Sequencing of Rice No. 4 Chromosome” project came on top of the 10 Scientific Progress News Report in 2002. 3 research achievements have won the second prize of the National Scientific Development Award. YZU has embarked on a successful road to serve agricultural and rural development through combining agriculture field work, related scientific research and teaching work together with northern Jiangsu as a foundation and efforts can reach the adjacent central and southern Jiangsu.


YZU covers an area of about 287 hectares with a build-up area of 1.22 million square meters. The eight campuses of YZU are closely located in the downtown area of Yangzhou. The University also owns experimental factories, farms, an animal hospital, an affiliated high school and primary school, and affiliated clinical hospitals with a full range of modern facilities to meet the needs of teaching, research and students’ internships. YZU attaches great importance to international exchange and cooperation. It has set up close links and academic relations with a number of institutions of research and higher education in over 20 countries and regions. YZU is well qualified to enroll international students and students from Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan.


In more than a decade, as it has undergone an innovative process from combing to merging to restructuring and to improving, YZU is now developing in an all-round manner. In the Teaching Assessment of Undergraduate Education organized by China’s Ministry Of Education, YZU was rated Excellence.


As a university of more than 100 years, YZU now aims to achieve new heights of success. It presses ahead with reform and innovation, determined to contribute more valuable experience to the administrative reform in China’s higher education. It has thus been regarded as a banner in China’s university reform. In its new journey, Yangzhou University will keep following the guidance and leadership of the government and upholding the scientific overview of development to build a harmonious school with a brighter future.
