Overview - Columbia in Beijing at Tsinghua University
Columbia University in Beijing provides a rare opportunity for advanced students to directly enroll in a broad range of courses at Tsinghua University, one of China's top institutions. The supported immersion program is designed for independent students who already demonstrate a high level of both written and spoken Mandarin Chinese and who wish to challenge themselves by using Chinese to further understand their own areas of study in the humanities, social sciences, economics, sciences, environmental sciences, information sciences, engineering, and architecture.
The fall semester of the program runs from September to January, spring from February to June and the full year program from September to June.
