About Peking University

Peking University, is a major Chinese research university located in Beijing, and a member of the C9 League. It is the first established modern national university of China, founded as the "Imperial University of Peking" in 1898 as a replacement of the ancient Guozijian. By 1920, it had become a center for progressive thought. Today, Peking University is frequently listed by many domestic and international rankings as one of the top universities in China.In addition to academics, Peking University is especially renowned for its campus grounds, and the beauty of its traditional Chinese architecture.

 

The university consists of 30 colleges and 12 departments, with 93 specialties for undergraduates, 2 specialties for the second Bachelor's degree, 199 specialties for Master's degree candidates and 173 specialties for doctoral candidates. A leader in basic sciences research and teaching, the university has successfully developed applied sciences research and teaching as well.

Accommodation at PKU

 

 

The costs of studying overseas vary greatly depending on your lifestyle and where you go. Major costs are your return airfare, accommodation and living expenses, which vary from country to country. Living and travel costs range from as little as $2000 in total for short-term international study programs, up to $2000 per month – more in some high-cost countries – for full semester or year programs. Some partner universities also require you to pay for health insurance, orientation or extra-curricular activities, so be aware that extra costs like these might pop up.

Indicative travel and living costs can be found on websites such as:

Lonely Planet

STA Travel

For all ANU endorsed programs you continue to pay your fees to ANU, but you are exempt from paying tuition fees to the institution overseas. Often long-term overseas study will not cost much more than studying in Australia and it will give you an experience of a lifetime.

 

 

Scholarships

It’s possible to hold more than one scholarship, bursary or grant at a time, so checking out all of the funding opportunities available to you is a good idea.

You may also be able to source some funding through our partner universities – they provide scholarships and grants to encourage you to choose them as your destination.

OS-HELP
