The University, city and region
Since China opened up to the world in 1978, Tsinghua University has developed into a comprehensive research university. It is widely acknowledged as one of the most prestigious universities in China. The university has 14 schools and 56 departments with faculties in science, engineering, humanities, law, medicine, history, philosophy, economics, management, education and art.
The University is located in the North Western suburbs of Beijing and the campus is almost a city in itself – full of restaurants, cafeterias, stores and markets. Dining halls offering a variety of Chinese food are within walking distance of both the dormitories and the classrooms. Stores are conveniently located around campus, which provide for every facet of the student's life.
The city of Beijing
The Forbidden City (the Palace Museum) is one of the largest and best-preserved palace complexes in the world. It is located in the center of Beijing, China.
Built 1406-1420 during the Ming Dynasty, it had been the imperial home of 24 emperors of the Ming and Qing Dynasties.
While the Forbidden City is linked to the ancient dynasties of China, Tiananmen Square is linked to Mao Zedong and the Cultural Revolution. Tiananmen Square was expanded in the 1950s so that it would hold over a million people.
