Become immersed in the rich culture and history of China while studying at Tsinghua University in Beijing. This program allows participants to enroll in university courses in a variety of fields while studying alongside international and Chinese students. This program is ideal for students from business, science and engineering majors who wish to take courses taught in English or who have a high enough proficiency in Chinese to take a course taught in Chinese.

Beijing, China's capital, has served as China's leading center for learning and culture for more than 700 years. It is the political and administrative center of the country and a communications and transportation hub. With a population of 12.5 million and growing, it is the second largest city in China after Shanghai. At its core is the Forbidden City with the Imperial Palace and throne room of China's emperors. Surrounding the city center is a mixture of traditional neighborhoods, modern industrial quarters, and suburbs of high-rise office buildings, apartments, and luxury hotels. In anticipation of its new role as an international conference and meeting site, Beijing is in a frenzy of refurbishing historical monuments, razing swaths of buildings to make way for the redesign of city thoroughfares, and construction of vast new facilities to accommodate both foreign visitors and the needs of its expanding economy.
