Campuses and Culture[edit]

ELU covers an area of 10,300,000 square meters. Located in Dandong, the largest border city and a tourist resort of China, it located on the Yalu River bank near the Yellow Sea Coast. The multi-colored azaleas in spring and the golden light-shining gingko trees in autumn constitute Dandong’s bright traveling characteristics and landscape, which attract friends home and abroad.


Eastern Liaoning University (ELU), approved by the Ministry of Education in China, subordinates to the educational authority of Liaoning Province.It has developed into a multidisciplinary university, covering a variety of subjects, such as economics, law, literature, physics, engineering, agriculture, medicine, education, and management. College programs and the university degree credits are accepted by all institutions, approved by the Ministry of Education in China. Therefore, students are able to transfer or apply for graduate study in other universities. ELU now has 15 faculties and 5 academic research institutes with 17000 full-time students and 1,158 faculty members, among them are 100 professors and 500 associate professors.

Since 1988, ELU has established friendly cooperative relationships with many universities abroad, such as Lake Superior State University and Eastern Kentucky University in the U.S., Sault College in Canada, University of Sunderland in Britain, Chosun University, Konkuk University, Silla University, Hannam University, Kangnung National University in Korea. ELU has implemented broad cooperation with the above universities in the aspects of sending and exchanging students and teachers, launching international academic seminars and running educational projects. In 2004, ELU set up China-Korea International College with Silla University and Chonju University, Korea.

In order to further promote its Chinese-foreign cultural and educational exchange as well as to make a good use of its high standard teaching resources, ELU recruits foreign students at all levels. Up to the present, we have recruited hundreds of students from Korea, D.P.R.Korea, the U.S., Britain, Russia, Canada, Japan, Australia and Burma. ELU offers all-level Chinese language classes and other subjects to students who need formal education as well as various types of informal education.
