There are plenty of resources here, but university is university, where knowledge and ability won’t come to you automatically, instead, you have to seek it by yourself. In this university, you can live your life with ease, with a troubled mind, or being busy and fulfilled. You have to be responsible for yourself and select your own way to spend your days here. Nevertheless, this is also very crucial for your own life.

It is easier for us to know each other and gradually get used to life here. Classmates are friendly and we get along pretty well. It feels like home here. Even though after 2 years, we will be back to our own campus, I will cherish the time we spent here.
－ Leisure and Recreation Management Department, 余欣怡 (Malaysia).
Ming Chuan University came to China to promote student recruitment when I was deciding my university department choices. After getting to know the university, I decided to apply for it. I love English and the language has been my strength. After taking IELTS, I am thinking to take this as a step for overseas exchange or further study. Kinmen is not far from Xiamen and Ming Chuan University is a good platform for me.
