WTU is actively involved in efforts to strengthen international exchange and cooperation. “One Belt, One Road ” Initiative proposed by the state opens a new window for WTU in working with more international partners. WTU entered the Association of Universities for Textiles in Europe (AUTEX) and the Textile Institute (TI) in 2013. We successfully hosted the 89th Textile Institute World Conference (TIWC) in 2014, which is the highest level conference in textile areas. More than 300 talents and experts from over 20 countries attended the TIWC to discuss the innovation and development of textile.


We have established cooperative ties with nearly 50 universities and research institutes from Australia , Bangladesh , Canada , Czech Republic , France , Italy , Japan , Korea , New Zealand , Portugal , Russia , Sweden , United Kingdom , United States , Ukraine , India , ect. We have carried out fruitful cooperation and exchanges in the fields of teaching and research, and dispatched a number of outstanding teachers and students to world renowned universities, such as the University of Manchester, Leeds Trinity University College, University of Derby, University of Southampton, University of California, Davis Campus, Bunka Gakuen University, Mod’Art International, Technical University of Liberec, Holmesglen Institute of TAFE, Ivanovo State University of Chemistry and Technology, Ogarev Mordovia State University, ect. We remain vigorous in our efforts to establish joint research, teaching, exchange or other cooperative relations that will benefit the faculty and students of both institutions.


In addition to the above joint efforts, WTU actively promotes International Education for the individual. To date, almost 500 international students from 70 countries and regions have studied at our university for short or long-term periods in a variety of disciplines. This initiative offers broad and far-reaching opportunities for leadership development and success in the promotion of teaching, scientific research, and international exchange at all levels of the educational spectrum.


In 2014, WTU was commissioned to cultivate the international students who received a Chinese Government Scholarship, awarded by the Ministry of Education of the PRC.
