About Peking University

Peking University (PKU), founded in 1898, is consistently listed as one of the highest ranked universities in China. It is the university at the center of all major political and cultural movements in modern Chinese history.

Students in our Language & Culture program take courses at PKU’s School of Chinese as a Second Language (SCSL). Chinese language courses are offered at the elementary, intermediate, and advanced levels, depending on the placement exam taken upon arrival. All students are required to take conversation, reading and writing courses. Language tutors are available at a reasonable cost.

At the elementary level, students take 20 hour per week of intensive language classes emphasizing grammar, reading, speaking, and listening. CSU IP students at the elementary level do not take electives. At the intermediate and advanced levels, students may also take electives such as Listening in Chinese, Writing Chinese Characters, Newspaper Readings, and other special subjects in Chinese economics, history, music, politics, and religion. Courses in English are available through the "China Series" program. Students who score highly on their language placement test may be permitted to take courses from regular departments at PKU if permission is granted from the department.
