Guizhou Minzu University was one of the first universities in Guizhou to enroll international students. Currently, the university has hundreds of foreign students, including language trainers, undergraduate students, postgraduate students, doctoral students and advanced training students.

In 2014, the university qualified to offer Chinese Government Scholarships.

The university's international education school was established in 2013 and is equipped with four departments: the general office department, teaching department, student management department and Chinese-language teaching department. The school has nine teachers, including one professor, three associate professors and five teaching assistants.

The school's education for international students is divided into academic instruction, including doctoral, master and undergraduate education, and non-academic education, including training programs for various majors.

So far, the school has enrolled 385 students from 23 countries. Of the total, 264 students received academic education and scholarships offered by the Chinese government, Guizhou provincial government and the university.

The preparatory Chinese-language class helps improve the students' language skills and communication ability and allows them to pass the HSK test and start professional study.

Short-term training classes allow the students to experience aspects of Chinese culture, such as Chinese calligraphy, Chinese painting, Chinese martial arts, Chinese chess and music from Chinese films and television. Meanwhile, the students can enjoy the scenery, ethnic culture and history of Guizhou.

The school will issue training certificates to all qualified international students of long-term or short-term non-academic education.
