About

The university was originally founded in Shanghai as Guanghua University in 1925. On June 3, students broke away from St. John's University after the May 30th Movement. Under the leadership of the prominent scholar Zhang Shouyong, Guanghua University was founded. Following the outbreak of the Second Sino-Japanese War with Japan, the university moved to the inland city of Chengdu in 1938. In 1946, the branch campus in Chengdu proclaimed independence and was renamed the private Chenghua University. In 1952, the university was transformed into the public Chenghua University, it merged with schools and departments of business and economics from 16 other universities and colleges and was renamed Sichuan Institute of Finance and Economics. In 1980, People's Bank of China, China's central bank, took over the administration of the university and renamed it the Southwestern University of Finance and Economics (SWUFE) in 1985. The university was listed in the 211 Project in 1995. PBC administered the university until the administration was transferred to the Ministry of Education in 2000. It was listed in the 985 Innovative Platforms for Key Disciplines Project in 2011.

Student Reviews

I enter the school without knowledge about Nursing or medical field and school was able to fed enough knowledge that i need to learn
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

My experience in studying in SWU is quiet good. I was able to learn the things i need to learn as a nursing student and their teaching technique is effective for the students

I believe I deserve this scholarship because it will help me achieve my long-term goals. By furthering my education in Nursing, I can work towards my career goals in the medical field.

It was great but our department is not responsive enough to answer of all our questions about. And also i dont feel the environment of my university because too much in pollution and its bad for our health.

Don’t let the most positive person down.
