Chinese language schools are a dime-a-dozen today. Among the handful of prestigious programs in Beijing, IUP offers the smallest classes, the most experienced, professional teachers, and the flexibility for students to design specialized tutorials tailored to their academic and professional interests—all for a highly competitive price. We train students who want to achieve full professional fluency in Chinese. This is why IUP has been leading the field for 55 years. And why one prominent China hand and podcast host called IUP “the Cadillac of Chinese language programs.”
Most applicants find out about IUP through word-of-mouth from academic advisors and alumni of the program. But they end up choosing IUP for our academic rigor, advanced Chinese courses, small class size, self-designed independent tutorials, and location at Tsinghua University in Beijing. The program’s stellar reputation also makes our alumni highly sought-after applicants for China-related graduate schools and job opportunities, and employers regularly share job opportunities the IUP alumni association. Graduates of the program have taken on leading roles in academica, business, diplomacy, entrepreneurship, law, media, and NGO management. If a student is serious about attaining professional fluency in Chinese, IUP is the place to study.
