Xiamen University, or XMU, founded in 1921 by Tan Kah Kee -- a renowned patriotic overseas Chinese scholar -- is one of the universities in China designated for both the "211 Project" and the "985 Project", which are designed to cultivate national key universities and world-class universities respectively.
Xiamen University has cooperated with over 250 overseas universities and made substantive exchanges with 47 foreign universities that rank among the top 200 in the world. The university has vigorously promoted the campaign of teaching Chinese as a foreign language worldwide by co-establishing 15 Confucius Institutes with universities in North America, Europe, and Africa.
As the first overseas branch campus established by a prestigious Chinese university, Xiamen University Malaysia Campus (XMUM) started construction in July 2014 and now is acclaimed as a brilliant pearl on the Marine Silk Road. XMUM now has an enrolment of over 5,000 students in 16 majors, with a faculty of over 360 staffs, of whom 80 percent are full-time teachers with doctoral degrees.
XMU is strong in marine science with its marine-related schools and colleges and key laboratories, including the College of Ocean and Earth Sciences, the College of the Environment and Ecology, the Coastal and Ocean Management Institute, the South China Sea Institute, the Research School for Southeast Asian Studies, and the Tan Kah Kee Innovation Laboratory.
