Study In Wuhan - Explore Universities in Wuhan

Study in Wuhan, and find the best universities in Wuhan.

Wuhan used to consist of three separate cities – Hanyang, Hankou and Wuchang – and has played a pivotal role in the formation of modern China. The Wuchang uprising in 1911 sparked a revolution which led to the Qing Dynasty being overthrown and the formation of the Republic of China.

By 1927 the city had been united and is now the most populous city in Central China, and a major transportation hub for the country. This is one of China’s most upbeat and fast-growing cities, with trade flooding in through the mighty Yangtze River.
