About the University

An exciting place to live

Tianjin is a booming city of 13 million people – more than London, New York or Tokyo. You’ll find the low cost of living and great transport make Tianjin an ideal base for exploring China during your studies.

You can be in Beijing in 30 minutes for as little as US$8 on the bullet train. Taxis are cheap and plentiful. Your student ID also gets your heavily discounted bus travel. You’ll get to know this glorious city in no time at all.

Learning doesn’t stop at the end of class. You’ll be fully immersed in Chinese culture and there’s so much to learn just by going about your daily life here. As an international student, you’ll find locals will be keen to get to know you and curious to find out about where you’ve come from.

If you’re already thinking about the longer term, we’ve got you covered. Tianjin is booming, more so than any other region in China. It’s also home to one of the largest ports in China.
