East China Normal University (ECNU)

ECNU Faculty of Education is located in the city of Shanghai, one of the most modern and beautiful metropolitan areas in China. Ever since its foundation in 1951, educational study has been a core research focus of ECNU. After half a century of efforts, the “Shanghai-styled” educational research has been developed here with the distinctive features of openness, fusion and innovation. In October 2014, ECNU consolidated its relevant resources on education studies and founded the Faculty of Education. It serves to forge the strongest discipline system of educational studies in China and incubate the leaders of the future education. 


As the key construction discipline in the national-level “Double First Class” project, the Faculty of Education is committed to be the bellwether of Chinese educational research, pioneering the innovation of educational theories and practices, constantly outputting solutions and Chinese experiences to educational issues of China and the world.
