Wenzao Charismatic Foundation
Wenzao Ursuline University of Languages was founded by the sisters of the Roman Union of the Order of St. Ursula in 1966. It was named in honor of Wenzao Lo, the first Chinese Bishop. Wenzao is known for its commitment to excellence in foreign language teaching and research.
At the beginning of its establishment, admission was only open to female students. Wenzao first opened its doors to male students in 1980. In 1999, Wenzao Ursuline Junior College of Modern Languages was officially restructured to become Wenzao Ursuline College of Languages and renamed to Wenzao Ursuline University of Languages in 2013. The University began to teach a more diverse group of students since then. In response, two-year and four-year college programs, post-graduate study, and extension education were added.
