Colorado State University (CSU) in the United States will work with Guangdong Ocean University (GOU) and Zhanjiang No 1 High School to cultivate more talent, according to a cooperative agreement signed on April 18.
Under the partnership, GOU students who sign up for the "2+2" undergraduate program will be sent to CSU to study for two or three years. This allows them to receive a bachelor's degree from both universities upon graduation.
Students from Zhanjiang No 1 High School who are admitted to CSU will be able to receive a scholarship covering a third of tuition for up to five academic years.
CSU is a public research university founded in 1870 and located in the US state of Colorado. It offers 150 programs across eight colleges and 55 departments, along with advanced teaching facilities and professional faculty members.
