This program is specially designed for foreign college students who are interested in Chinese language, Chinese history, Chinese economy and Chinese culture. Foreign universities or colleges select the applicants and send excellent ones (at least 15) to study in Xiamen University. The courses, time and tuition fee of the program can be decided through further negotiation.

In this program, OEC is responsible to offer Chinese language training and open English lectures on Chinese economy, culture, politics, or society.
