Source: chinadaily.com.cn Updated: Sep 17, 2020

To deal with problems that have materialized during the global fight against COVID-19 – such as difficulties for students studying abroad, HAITC will moderately increase its enrollment scale in 2020. Those studying abroad who meet specific conditions may have the chance to be admitted. The admission guidelines are as follows.


HNU-ASU Joint International Tourism College, Hainan University (HAITC) is an innovative joint college and a Sino-foreign cooperative tourism institution approved by the Ministry of Education of China in May 2017. 

HAITC was co-established by Hainan University and Arizona State University (ASU) based on tourism development needs. It is affiliated with Hainan University.

Combining the advantages of Hainan University and ASU, the college introduces international cutting-edge tourism education concepts. The professional courses are given in English to focus on cultivating management talents in tourism and related fields with a global perspective and international competitiveness.


High school graduates who are citizens of the People's Republic of China and hold an unconditional admission notice from an overseas university and originally planned to study overseas will be enrolled. 

Enrollment scale

60 students. 


Hotel Management (Tourism Development and Management)

Human Geography and Urban-Rural Planning (Parks and Recreation Management)

Public Administration (Public Service and Public Policy).

Enrollment category

The expansion is an independent enrollment and is not included in the national enrollment plan. Students will be enrolled independently by HAITC, and the expansion plan will be submitted to the Admissions and Employment Office of Hainan University and ASU for review. Enrolled students should also register for ASU and log into the Sino-foreign cooperative education institution's registration system.

Degree issuance 

Students who meet the graduation requirements will be awarded a degree certificate from ASU and be certified by the Chinese Service Center for Scholarly Exchange of the Ministry of Education. Hainan University's graduation certificate and degree certificate will not be issued, and students will not be registered in the system of China Higher Education Student Information and Career Center (CHESICC).

Schooling advantages

Faculty team: one-third of the faculty is from ASU, one-third from Hainan University and one-third are recruited globally. The professional courses are taught in English, and the American class teaching model is also used. Also, there are international English-language teaching teams. 

Academic atmosphere: The college has a relatively independent teaching space; it adopts student-centered teaching management methods and has professional teachers to provide educational guidance and consultation. The college also recruits international students.

International exchanges: The college offers study tours (at own expense), including visits to well-known American companies and universities. The international faculty and management team will provide students with resources and assistance to study at prestigious overseas universities, enhancing students' global competitiveness and advantages.

"4+0" model: Students do not have to travel to study at the American school's headquarters to obtain a foreign degree during the period of study. Students who meet the relevant essential requirements can choose to go to ASU for exchanges from the third academic year.
