Formed in 2006, the first cohort of students graduated in August 2010. The University now has over 6,000 students studying on campus. The language of instruction in years two to four is English.

It also provides writing support for postgraduate students as well as overseeing Chinese language support.

The nearby Jinji Lake provides attractive views, by day and by night, and there are a variety of shopping facilities, international and local restaurants, entertainment hubs and a great nightlife.
