The Chinese language College of Huaqiao University is a unit of teaching Chinese as a foreign language in Huaqiao University, one of the first batch of units qualified to enroll foreign students announced by the Ministry of Education of China, and one of the first Chinese language education bases approved by the overseas Chinese Affairs Office of the State Council. it is one of the key schools supported by the National Chinese Office in neighboring countries, and it is the earliest Chinese proficiency test center set up by the state in Fujian Province. Our main task is to spread Chinese language and culture to overseas Chinese and other foreigners, conduct Chinese language training, and promote cultural exchanges between China and foreign countries.
The Chinese language College is located in the famous Jimei Village in Xiamen. The campus covers an area of more than 60,000 square meters, with beautiful scenery and convenient transportation. 20 Chinese and Western buildings with "Jiageng style" are arranged neatly and elegantly on the campus from low to high, becoming a very distinctive architectural landscape.
The Chinese language College, formerly known as a cram school for overseas Chinese students in the United States, was approved by the State Council. Mr. Tan Kah Kee, a famous patriotic overseas Chinese leader, was entrusted to preside over a characteristic school founded in 1953 to recruit overseas Chinese students, young people of Chinese descent and foreign students who came to China to learn Chinese culture. In order to meet the needs of the rapid development of overseas Chinese education, in 1997, the overseas Chinese Affairs Office of the State Council decided to merge Jimei overseas Chinese School into overseas Chinese University and merge it with the Department of Teaching Chinese as a Foreign language of overseas Chinese University to establish a Chinese language College.
Since the establishment of the school, we have always adhered to the purpose of "serving overseas Chinese and spreading Chinese culture", carried forward Mr. Tan Kah Kee's rigorous spirit of running the school, took the promotion of Chinese culture as our duty, and made remarkable achievements in running a school.

At present, the Chinese language College has teaching and research institutions such as the Department of Chinese International Education, the Department of Chinese language Education, the Department of Chinese language, the Preparatory Department, the training Department, the Center for Modern Technology Education and the Institute of Chinese language Education. There are three undergraduate majors in Chinese international education, Chinese language education and Chinese language, and Chinese language majors. The college not only has graduate and junior college degree education and junior, secondary and higher non-degree education, but also offers short-term Chinese classes, training courses for Chinese teachers, summer (winter) camps for overseas students, preparatory education for overseas Chinese students, and other forms of education. At present, our college has more than 1700 students receiving various forms of education, including more than 800overseas students from Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, Malaysia, South Korea, Japan, Vietnam, the United States, Poland, the Netherlands, Spain, Italy, Ukraine, Brazil, the Republic of Congo (Brazzaville), Zambia, Turkmenistan and China.

On June 22nd, Qiu Yuanping, director of the overseas Chinese Affairs Office of the State Council, delivered an important speech entitled "United efforts, Innovation and Development to build Chinese Dream with the New achievements of overseas Chinese higher Education" at the Fifth Party Congress of Huaqiao University. Director Qiu Yuanping stressed and pointed out that the present and future period is not only a critical period for our country to build a moderately prosperous society in an all-round way, but also a key period for Chinese Dream to realize the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. She put forward the following hopes to the party committee and all the teachers, students and staff of Huaqiao University: conscientiously study and implement the spirit of the 18th CPC National Congress and the National work Conference on overseas Chinese Affairs, and make new contributions to the cause of higher education for overseas Chinese; persist in seizing opportunities, scientifically plan for the future, promote the scientific development of the school by leaps and bounds, adhere to the quality of the school, promote connotation development, and lay a solid foundation for the construction of famous high-level universities at home and abroad. Persist in serving overseas Chinese and gathering strength, make new contributions to the common construction of "Chinese Dream"; persist in having a foothold in Fujian and serving the society, make new contributions to promoting regional economic and social development, and persist in strengthening and improving party building to provide a strong guarantee for the all-round development of the school cause. The college will take Director Qiu Yuanping's important speech as a guide for all kinds of work, further promote the scientific development and leapfrog development of the college, and make due contributions to the country's work on overseas Chinese affairs and to the realization of "Chinese Dream."
We are convinced that under the strong leadership of superior departments, through the long-term unremitting efforts of all teachers and students, we will certainly be able to achieve the grand goal of building the Chinese language College into a "renowned Chinese language education base at home and abroad, an overseas teacher training base and a university preparatory education base".
