Why Tianjin University?
Established in 1895, Tianjin University was the first university in China. It is regarded as one of the largest multidisciplinary engineering universities in China and is known for achievements in engineering and the sciences, as well as for its nationally recognized laboratories and research centers on campus.
Tianjin University enrolls more than 1,500 international students. It was one of the first Chinese universities to seek out foreign universities to establish international programs.
What if I don’t know Chinese?
No formal Chinese language skills are required for this experience. You’ll be accompanied by Tianjin University student ambassadors during activities and trips off campus. Prior to departure, you will participate in a week-long preparatory class to gain better understanding and knowledge of Chinese language and culture.
