Overseas teachers are an important part of Shanghai Maritime University’sfaculty and staff. In 2012, we have more than 130 long-term and short-terms overseas visiting scholars, who have played an increasingly important role inthe university’s daily teaching and researches. In a world that is quickly globalizing and education-wise, overseas teachers are helping our students and faculties stay continuously competitive in international academics and jobmarkets.

For overseas teachers coming to our university, we will provide clean, safe, and comfortable accommodations; provide enthusiastic,thoughtful and efficient service and help with the visas, expert certificates and residence permits needed; and periodically organize diverse activities to enrich foreign teachers' free time.
