To date, there are approximately 30 M.A. graduates and 3 doctors from France. All graduates are successful in finding good jobs.


In the coming period, AUF changes its investment strategy in replace of direct funding as in the past. To be specific, AUF will invest in short term for 2-3 years for specific projects. Some investment strategies of AUF include facilitating the faculty in inviting foreign guest lecturers, facilitating in communication and research activities, material search, and sending USSH’s lecturers to study abroad, etc.
