About the scheme
Our dual-degree scheme allows you to obtain two degrees, one English and one Chinese, in the same time-frame as a traditional Chinese degree.
Why choose a dual-degree?
Whether studying in China or the UK, the dual-degree exposes you to highly interactive and challenging teaching styles used in the UK education system. You will develop your independence, leadership, communication, reasoning and critical thinking skills, preparing you for further study or the start of your career.
Get two degrees
By completing the programme you will get qualifications that are recognised in both China and the UK.
Improve your English
The final two years of your course are taught in English, helping you finish your degree with a higher level of English language.
Be more employable
Having both a UK and Chinese degree means you be more employable, especially if you want to work internationally.
Get industry experience
By coming to Surrey, you will have the opportunity to complete a Professional Training placement with one of our 2,300+ industry partners.
International companies greatly value a UK degree, as you will have western approach to management, are able to work across many cultures, and have excellent language skills.
Get a UK education for cheaper
By completing the dual-degree programme, you will get a UK education and English language training at a lower cost than traditional entry methods.
Continue your studies internationally
A UK degree is more universally accepted than a traditional Chinese degree and you can use this to apply for postgraduate study at Surrey or other world-leading universities.
Become more cultured
The opportunity to study in the UK provides a rounded international education and is a pathway to living and working overseas.
SII-DUFE combines the experience and reputation of the University of Surrey and Dongbei University of Finance and Economics.

Dedicated learning resources
You will have access to the SII-DUFE library, learning centre and language lab, in addition to our virtual learning environment.
Whilst in China, you will receive support from the Student Affairs Office and in the UK you can access student support via the MySurrey Hive.
