Guizhou Forerunner College (GFC) is a non-profit college in China, founded to bestow practical, high quality education for under-served students in Guizhou Province.
We provide three years of low-to-no-cost higher education for students in vocational fields through the School of Hotel Management, School of Computer Application (HTC), Internet Marketing and Management, Tea Processing Techniques and Culture, GFC Minority Culture Center and the Bright Angel College for the Blind.
