Background information

The Yenching Academy of Peking University builds bridges between China and the rest of the world through an interdisciplinary Master’s programme in China Studies for outstanding graduates from all over the globe. This initiative brings together young people who show promise to lead and innovate in their fields, in an intensive learning environment where they can explore China and its role in the world – past, present, and future. The Academy aims thereby to shape a new generation of global citizens with a nuanced understanding of China.

A fully funded residential programme, the Yenching Academy offers a wide array of interdisciplinary courses on China within broadly defined fields of the Humanities and Social Sciences. Working closely with their academic mentors, Yenching Scholars are granted the flexibility to create their own study paths by choosing from six academic concentrations and participating in a variety of extracurricular activities.
Studying at the Academy represents a unique opportunity not only for intercultural and academic exchange, but also for personal and professional development.

The Yenching Academy is on Twitter @PKUYCA
