IPP Programme

The China Foreign Affairs University International Partnership Program (IPP) was established in 2006 between the China Foreign Affairs University and selected renowned universities in Canada to enable successful graduates of the IPP to gain direct entry to their Bachelor Degree programs. Since then, more than 1000 students have successfully enrolled in universities such as the University of Alberta, Queen’s University, McGill University, University of British Columbia and University of Toronto.



As from 2016, IPP and Beijing Normal University – Hong Kong Baptist University United International College (UIC) shall  jointly launch  a one-year CFAU IPP-UIC ACE program to offer a different pathway leading to a Bachelor Degree  to high school graduates from Hong Kong, Macau, and Mainland China.  After the completion of this one year program, students can gain direct entry to the Bachelor Degree programs of University of Alberta (U of A) or the other four aforesaid Canadian universities.
