So far, it has cultivated for the country, and especially for Guangxi, more than 300,000 teachers and other talents.

Yucai Campus is located near the National Hi-Tech Development Area in Guilin. It has educated more than ten thousand excellent personnel for Vietnam. Considering the long history of cooperation between the University and Vietnam, the Vietnam Memorial School was built on its original site with the purpose of remembering history and enlightening future generations. Many valuable materials of the Chinese Language School, the Chinese Branch of the Vietnamese Army School,the Yucai School and the September-Second School are displayed to show the spirit of Vietnamese students who have studied here and the long-standing friendship between China and Vietnam.

Yanshan Campus is located in the Education Zone of Guilin, with the beautiful Xiangsi River meandering through it. It was officially put into use in October 2007, and is now gradually becoming a garden-like, modern and information-based campus.
