With “Incessant Pursuit” as our motto, our college intends to lay a solid foundation for the future development of potential talents, so that they can be well-rounded in knowledge, abilities and personal qualities, so that they have the spirit and abilities to be creative, so that they can be future leaders with an international vision and enduring competitiveness in certain fields.
To reach the goal of "laying a solid foundation for talents", CKC started the Excellent Education Plan covering philosophy education, math & science capacity training and other aspects. The aim is to cultivate future leaders and innovative talents with solid basis, comprehensive abilities, international vision and enduring competitiveness in certain fields.
CKC students are thoughtfully selected from excellent senior high graduates who were enrolled before National College Entrance Examination from all around the nation, or who had impressive performance in the Examination. The college adopts an open and circulating system in which outstanding students from other colleges in Zhejiang University get chances to join after the test, and certain students unadaptable to the college's mode can choose to leave for other colleges. After finishing the special training project, students will receive their graduation certificate and diploma. The more excellent ones will receive CKC Honors Certificate of Zhejiang University.
