We are happy to announce that our overseas recruitment talks are now open for registration. From 4th September to 8th September 2019, we will successively schedule three sessions in National University of Singapore, Monash University, and the University of New South Wales. Come on in, sign yourself up for some latest stories and fresh insights on campus. Let’s meet up!


Who are we

For many, this name may not ring a bell yet. Westlake University is a budding research university based in the picturesque city of Hangzhou, China. Since its inception, the university has received steadfast support and highlighted endorsements from businesses, the media, the public, governments and institutions at various levels across public and private sectors.


What makes us different

Unlike many universities, higher education institutions and research institutes, we are a flagship university in China’s ongoing education reform and at the forefront of China’s scientific progress. We are a chartered university on an uncharted journey responsive to the calling of our era. With an iconic educational philosophy of a high-aiming, focused and research-oriented university, we are the benchmark of cultivating talented people from the doctoral level onwards only in selective and STEM-first disciplines, such as medicine, science, and engineering.


We are a young and thriving university that is small but perfectly formed. As we grow and evolve, every day is brand new as we march into the future of infinite possibilities. Here at Westlake, you can freely celebrate innovative thoughts and meaningful ideas, be bold and untold in your research and study, and work, learn, and play out your ideas meticulously and tirelessly to your heart content. Together, we map out the future of technology and humanity.


Along the course, just remember there is no stupid idea but only cowards who dare not to try it out. Do not be afraid of failure, as failure opens the door to the greatness and success. Join us together in this remarkable life-changing journey. You are never alone in making your mark on a better world!
