Guizhou University (GZU) is a provincial research university located in suburban Guiyang, capital of Guizhou, China. Founded in 1902, it is the flagship institution of higher learning in Guizhou province and is one of the largest universities in southwest China. In 2017, the university was recognised by the Chinese Ministry of Education as a Double First-Class University, with Double First Class status in certain disciplines which the government seeks to elevate to "world-class" status.
GZU covers an area of 362.22 hectare. The University has 40 colleges, with 33,604 full-time undergraduate students (including 16,888 students from the two independent colleges) and 12,433 graduate students. It is home to 3,938 faculty members.
In April 2019, SUSS and Guizhou University signed an MOU to establish and develop a close partnership to promote cross-training programmes and academic exchange between the two institutions.
