Lanzhou University is one of only 20 universities implementing this nation-level program.

Each academic year, approximately 80 students are admitted in four elite class respectively in math, physics, chemistry and biology as well as one class in humanities, which could provide students with the best education and resources, including study-abroad opportunities.

On the strength of the advantage of Lanzhou University in the above core disciplines, CHC seeks to explore the effective training methods and prepare enough hardware and software for talented students to commit themselves to scientific research. Since CHC aims to develop future leaders in these core disciplines, it works to foster the international environment by its advanced teaching methods, small size of classes, and undergraduate tutorial system.
