If you want to study at Wuhan University as an exchange student for one or two semesters, you must be enrolled at one of our partner universities, which have signed formal student exchange agreements with us. Please consult the international office of your university to find out if there is such an agreement.

Please note: all the IMBA courses are arranged during weekends.
If you change your major after arrival, we need proof from the exchange institution (or email from your home university). We do not accept the changing of majors privately.
Currently, over 150 of our courses can be taught in English. At the undergraduate level, four subject areas offer English-taught courses. More choices are available at the postgraduate level.
·Chinese language courses
Incoming exchange students are not restricted to courses only in their major and can select courses in two subject areas（including Chinese Language Courses）. However, courses are taught only once a year, either in the spring semester or in the autumn semester.
Course availability and details are subject to change due to circumstances. Please consult each school for the most current course arrangement after your arrival.
Maximum 30 credits per semester, while the minimum credit limit is up to the regulations of your home university.
It is recommended that students registering for Chinese-taught courses have passed HSK5 or above. Students with lower Chinese competence can choose English-taught courses or Chinese language courses.
