History


Qing Dynasty

In 1897, then-mayor of Hangzhou, () established the "Qiushi Academy/Ch'iu Shih Academy" (). Lin studied the Western higher education system and applied it to the Qiushi Academy. The Ch'iu-shih Academy was renamed to Chekiang College () in 1902, and to Chekiang Higher Institutes in 1903. A second institution that factored into the early history of Zhejiang University was Yuying Xuetang (''Yuying School'' or ''Yuying College''), established in 1902. This was renamed to Yuying Yishu (''Yuying Public School''), and then to Yuying Academy. In 1911, Yuying Academy became Zhijiang Xuetang (''Zhijiang College'') and moved to Qinwang Hill (), outside of Hangzhou.


1912–1937

In 1912, Zhejiang Medical School was established, later developing into Zhejiang Provincial Medical College and becoming part of Zhejiang University. In 1927, some schools and colleges (e.g. industrial and agricultural colleges/schools) were merged into the Qiushi Academy. Then the name of the enlarged school was changed to "National Third Sun Zhongshan University" (or, National Third Sun Yat-sen University), after
