In recent years, with the strong support from BNU and the joint efforts of all students, faculty and staff members, Faculty of Education has achieved leapfrog development in the fields of education subject construction, team building, talent training, academic research, social services, and international engagement. The comparative advantages and international influence of BNU's education discipline has also been further consolidated and strengthened. Ranking 25th in the QS 2020 World University Education Subject Ranking surely will further expand the influence of our university at home and abroad. It provides an important reference for the goal of building up a “world-class discipline” with “BNU style, Chinese characteristics, and world-class” education subject, and strengthens our confidence in contributing to major national education development strategies.
