Getting to Nankai University
The easiest way to reach Nankai University is to fly to Tianjin Binhai International airport (TSN), which you can fly direct to from East Asia or South East Asia. From anywhere else in the world, you might need to transfer at one of the major international airports such as Shanghai.
Once you land at TSN, you can collect your luggage and head to the arrivals hall where you’ll find someone from INTO waiting for you with your name on one of our branded signboards. The it’s just a 30-minute transfer to your accommodation where you can unpack and freshen up.
While we recommend flying to Tianjin, you may find a more suitable flight to Beijing Capital International Airport instead. This will require a longer ground transfer and you’ll need to take a pre-arranged taxi for around RMB 1000 which you’ll need to pay in cash to the driver.
If you choose this option, we won’t be able to meet you at the airport but the taxi driver will inform us when you arrive on campus so we can help you with your check-in. Alternatively, you can take the airport bus which usually has an English-speaking member of staff on duty who can help you with buying your ticket to the Tianjin bus station. This journey takes around 2.5 to 3 hours, followed by a taxi ride to your accommodation.
