Introduction of GAFSU

Global Alliance of Foreign Studies Universities (GAFSU), established by well-regarded universities with strengths in the teaching and research of foreign languages as well as area studies on 19 May 2017, is an open, non-profit and non-corporate body. It serves to facilitate foreign language teaching and research, area studies and people-to-people exchange as a platform for educational cooperation guided by the principles of solidarity, mutual trust, and win-win cooperation. The purpose of GAFSU is to complement the strengths of member universities; spread the languages and cultures of the world; bridge across differences; enhance area studies; and promote people-to-people and cultural exchanges, as well as mutual learning among the peoples of the world.


GAFSU is committed to forging a platform for educational exchange, enhancing talent cultivation, and promoting academic research. Through holding forums and meetings on an irregular basis, GAFSU intends to deepen the understanding among members, facilitate the sharing of educational philosophy and experience, and explore new educational models characterized by transnational programs and cross-border flows. GAFSU facilitates the faculty/student exchange among member institutions and cultivates multi-lingual and inter-disciplinary talents through joint programs, curriculum co-development, and joint degree programs in an effort to address the urgent global demand for top talents with an international vision. GAFSU also promotes the exchange and collaboration among the researchers and research institutes of member institutions; encourage joint application for international research grants; and facilitate joint research programs so that its members may have a greater influence on the teaching and research of foreign languages, area studies, and global governance.
