Briefly introduction

The university was founded by French Jesuits in Tianjin in 1921, with the initial name “Tianjin Commercial University”.

In 1960, the university is reformed as a Comprehensive University and named as Hebei University. 3 years after Tianjin was upgraded as autonomous municipality, Hebei University was moved to Baoding in 1970.

             Undergraduate education

HBU takes people oriented education as her basic principle and regards improving the teaching  quality as her lifeline. She tries out the “Three-semester” system on undergraduate education, pushes forward the “Accommodation” educational theory, and perfects the characteristics of the two interactive classrooms. With the foundational construction of general education and multiple model of student fostering as her mechanism, HBU would cultivate creative and innovative talents with practical ability and studying capability.

Postgraduate education

In  postgraduate  education,  HBU  insists  on  carrying out educational  innovation,  revising  teaching  syllabus  and  fostering  methods.  She takes  the lead in practicing “double-supervisor system” and “red-yellow-card warning system”, which do credit to the improvement of postgraduate education.
