UCASS welcomed its first international student (recruited under the name of Graduate School of Chinese Academy of Social Sciences) in 1997. Many of the international alumni take up core positions in either China or their home countries, making a real difference to the arenas of academics, businesses, industries and politics in their respective areas.UCASS provides Ph.D. Programs and Master Programs in a variety of disciplines for students from abroad, who will study and do research under the instructions of highly experienced researchers of various research institutions of CASS. Starting from 2021, UCASS offers both Chinese-taught graduate programs in Beijing and English-taught Ph.D. programs in Guangzhou, Guangdong Province.
