Fudan University historic gate

Fudan University museum Initially known as Fudan Public School or Fudan College in 1905. The two Chinese characters Fudan (??), literally meaning "(heavenly light shines) day after day", were chosen by the distinguished educator in modern Chinese history, Father Ma Xiangbo S.J. (???), from the Confucian Classics (?????•?? ??): "Itinerant as the twilight, sun glows and moon luminesces" (?????????). In 1911 during the Xinhai Revolution the college was taken up as the headquarters of the Guangfu Army and closed down for almost one year. The university motto comes from Analects Book 19.6(???•???): ?????,?????, which means "to learn extensively and adhere to

Fudan University (simplified Chinese: ????; traditional Chinese: ????; pinyin: Fùdàn Dàxué), located in Shanghai, China, is one of the oldest, most prestigious and most selective universities in the People’s Republic of China. Its institutional predecessor was founded in 1905, shortly before the end of China’s imperial Qing dynasty. Fudan University is composed of four campuses, including Handan (??), Fenglin (??), Zhangjiang (??), and Jiangwan (??). It is a comprehensive university highly ranked in physical sciences, humanities, social sciences, and medicine.

aspirations, to inquire earnestly and reflect with self application". In 1917, Fudan Public School became a private university named the Private Fudan University (??????), and also had a middle school and university-preparatory school. In 1929, Fudan adjusted its department, expanded to include Journalism Department, Municipals Department, Law Department and Education Department, totalling 17 departments devoted to Arts, Science, Law and Business. In 1937, Fudan moved with the Kuomintang to the inland city of Beibei, Chongqing, later the temporary capital. On December 25, 1941, the First Meeting of Fifth Conference of the Highest Executive Authority of the National Government of the Republic of China voted to change Fudan University (Chongqing) to a public university with Wu Nanxuan as its president. Fudan University then became National Fudan University (??????). Five years later, it moved back to Shanghai. After the establishment of the People’s Republic of China, Fudan lost its "National" appellation and became Fudan University to reflect the fact that all universities under the new socialist state would be public. Fudan was the first university to be adjusted by the new government in 1952 and modelled on Soviet education. The original departments were changed, and Arts and Science departments from at least ten other universities in eastern China were added. This not only added to basic academic offerings of Fudan, but also gathered many talented academics from Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Anhui and Shanghai, including Su Buqing, Chen Jiangong, Tan Jiazhen, and Lu Hefu. In the 1970s, after the Cultural Revolution, the university was changed to a modern, comprehensive-style university. Fudan University and Shanghai Medical University were merged on April 27, 2000.

Fudan University
composed of general education, specialized education and basic education in arts and sciences has been drawn up elaborately. Encompassing a complete and comprehensive range of disciplines, the courses of general education enable students to receive instructions in diverse fields. All the 70-plus undergraduate majors of Fudan have been put into seven general categories in order that students can benefit on a broader scale from the systematic discipline training. According to the Education Scheme for Arts and Sciences, course modules are determined by discipline systems and course suits, and credits by course modules. In this sense, we provide students with more options for their college studies. In contrast with the traditional syllabus, the new scheme has appropriately decreased the gross credits and class hours. Supported by second-major programs and extracurricular academic activities, it has made remarkable contributions to the intellectual development of the undergraduate students of Fudan.

Student association
There are four categories of student associations, namely Academic Societies, Practical Societies, Artistic Societies, and Physical Culture Societies. See also Student Associations at Fudan.

Graduate Program
The Graduate School of Fudan University was established on November 6th, 1984 and the Graduate School of Shanghai Medical University on January 25th, 1985. Both were among the first twenty-two graduate schools after China’s universities officially resumed enrolling graduate students. With the merger of Shanghai Medical University and Fudan University in April 2000, the two graduate schools were joined to be a new Graduate School of Fudan University. Therefore, a comprehensive graduate education structure is formed with disciplines in the fields of the humanities, history, philosophy, law, sciences, engineering, medicine and management.

What’s more, a worldwide gathering is held annually in order to promote the relations between the alumni all over the world. Notable Fudan alumni are listed below.
