Dalian University of Foreign Languages
Dalian University of Foreign Languages (DUFL) has enjoyed an exchange relationship with BCA for more than 20 years. BCA was the first American study abroad provider to establish an exchange program in the vibrant northern city of Dalian, located on the Liaoning Peninsula. As the name of the university implies, the area of expertise at the university is the instruction of Chinese and other languages. For students seeking a complete immersion in the Chinese language and culture, there is no better place than Dalian.
DUFL was founded in 1964 and has eight schools and seven departments offering languages such as Russian, Japanese, Korean, French, German, English, and of course, Chinese. The university has more than 120 professors on its staff and an undergraduate student population over 10,000. DUFL is the largest center for the instruction of Chinese to foreigners in northeast China and it was one of the first National Chinese Proficiency Test (HSK) centers in China. DUFL was also one of the first universities to offer a BA degree in Chinese to foreign students.
