The School is devoted tocultivatingstudents towards acquiring comprehensive innovative and practice-oriented skills. The flexible curriculum system focuses onstudents’ ability in knowledge application, independent analysis and problem solving.Students are able to strengthen their elementary knowledge in linguistics,humanities and social science, and literature.

Teachers in the School actively carry out pedagogical improvements,one of which is the promotion of “Zero Course”.
