Fudan Chinese University Campus To Open In Budapest
Innovation and Technology Minister László Palkovics signed a statement of understanding in Shanghai on Monday with Xu Ningsheng, president of China’s Fudan University, expressing their joint interest in establishing a campus for the university in Budapest.

The Innovation and Technology Ministry said in a statement that Fudan University is the world’s 40th best university, according to the QS World University Ranking, and that the founding of the campus compliments China’s “Belt and Road” global development initiative.

No universities under direct control of the Chinese government yet have a campus abroad. According to the Hungarian ministry, the Chinese government considers the foundation of the campus in Hungary a special project of bilateral co-operation.

More than 2,300 Chinese citizens are currently pursuing studies in Hungarian higher education.
