Wuhan University, embracing the scenic Luojia Hill on the banks of East Lake in Wuhan, Hubei Province, is a comprehensive and key national university directly under the administration of the Ministry of Education. It is also one of the universities supported by national “985 Project” and “211 Project.” The history of Wuhan University can be traced back to Ziqiang Institute, which was founded in 1893 by Zhang Zhidong, the then governor of Hubei and Hunan provinces in the late Qing Dynasty. In its early stage of development, the institute changed its name several times before it was officially named National Wuhan University in 1928. In August 2000, the school merged with Wuhan University of Hydraulic and Electric Engineering, Wuhan Technical University of Surveying and Mapping, and Hubei Medical University to form the new Wuhan University, which offers degrees in 11 disciplines including philosophy, economics, law, education, literature, history, science, engineering, agriculture, medicine, and management.
