Bavaria has a long-established cultural tradition and is the home of Oktoberfest, a world-renowned festival held annually in Munich. Since 2018, SZTU has hosted the Bavarian Cultural Night as part of the International Week for two consecutive years. The event aims to enable students to experience German culture on campus, provide a platform for SZTUers to broaden their horizons, and create an open, inclusive and enterprising environment.

Bavarian is the largest federal state and an important economic and cultural center of Germany. In 2004, Guangdong became the second province in China which forged a sister relationship with Bavaria.


SZTU has established close partnerships with plenty of universities of applied sciences in Bavaria, which have given great support for SZTU’s founding process and internationalization. In 2018, SZTU and five Bavarian universities of applied sciences signed an agreement on establishing a consortium for win-win development.
