    Textile Engineering

    Donghua is no doubt an educational institute with highly experienced teachers, labs equipped with latest testing instruments and a giant library to quench the thirst of book lovers. Being far away from home, I was feeling a sense of loneliness when I landed in China for the first time, however soon I realized that it’s just like my own home. DHU has a very big international students’ family lodging, studying, enjoying, sharing culture and food together. Donghua doesn’t enrich the students only with the knowledge inside the classroom rather it provides chance to do internships, industrial visits, workshops etc. as well.

    Business Administration

    Life is full of surprises and you never know how things will turn out. Time flies, I’ve been in Donghua for the seventh year. The advantage I can speak fluent Chinese makes me adapt to the study and life here faster. Therefore, I joined ISA and RA of ICES to help international students who have just arrived Shanghai and also organizing events and activities, such as sports activities, talent competition and more. China has a saying, “rely on parents at home, rely on friends outside.” I’m grateful to my family, teachers, friends, classmates for their help. My life is getting better because of you all.

    Donghua is a special place – they did everything to make all the newcomers feel very comfortable. With the help of teachers, advisors and classmates I felt that I’ve found my second home. It is important to mention that Donghua has one of the best international communities I have ever seen. Every year there are plenty of activities that will help you to find new friends, get more familiar with the school, Chinese culture and traditions. I can honestly say that choosing Donghua was one of the best decisions I have ever made and I am happy to be the part of this wonderful organization.

    Fashion and Apparel Design

    Donghua offers amazing courses for those who want to study fashion design. And I have seen a new kind of world by studying through Donghua. They made me understand fashion to a greater extent. From the first day of school, I was already involved in numerous International Student Association activities. I craved to do something outside school to improve my skills and at the same time I could get to meet new people too. Donghua is a great university to study in, I got nice friends, good student life, even their food from the canteen is unbelievably good.

    International Trade

    I believe Shanghai a fantastic city and CIP a great choice for studying business. It is an international community where you have access to a broad network, to students and teachers from different countries, and to business professionals who share their experiences. The academic atmosphere and overall students experience in Donoghua have benefited my personal development massively. I develop a business-oriented mindset during the study. The teachers helped me to get out from my comfort zone, to make innovations and I was encouraged to start my own company.
