Model

The base of International School of Ocean Science and Engineering is set up by HIT(Weihai), with several strategic partner universities working together to develop the merged international education platform. Along with the school, an international adapted education system and curriculum framework, and quality assurance framework will be developed. An international teaching team from multi-country is forming. High quality students from China and other countries will be recruited into the international school and study in HIT(Weihai) for several years.

The international school adopts the X+Y execution model, which means that students can study in HIT(Weihai) first and then transfer to partner university A, or B, or C, or D. After graduation, the qualifiedstudents can be awarded dual bachelor’s degrees from HIT and A, or HIT and B, or HIT and C, or HIT and D. The X in HIT(Weihai) could be 1, 2, 3, or 4, and Y in Partner University could be 3, 2, 1, or 0.

After the students’ graduation from the international school, they may go further for a master degree in the partner university, like X+Y+1 model. Each party should make effort to seek channel for students toward a PhD program.
