Dear International Students,

On behalf of the entire Peking University community, I would like to extend a warm welcome to all of you to the beautiful campus!

Peking University (PKU) is a student-oriented research university where individual responsibility and independence are fundamental to the education we offer. We strive to create an environment where not only Chinese but also international students and staff feel at home.

Since its establishment in 1898 as the first national comprehensive institution of higher learning ever founded in China, PKU has been regarded as a symbol of modern Chinese education. With our democratic administration laying great emphasis on academic freedom and scientific research, we have proudly produced a great number of scholars in various areas of concentration and specialty. The student body, faculty, and alumni have made significant research achievements and generated an incredible number of works of scholarship in both the arts and the sciences.

Internationalization is an important process in higher education. Spending time abroad enriches the lives of our students and staff. At the same time, international students and staff who visit PKU bring new insights to our academic community, creating a truly international campus. While learning from brilliant minds and enhancing your intellectual abilities, you may also indulge in its rich cultural heritages and participate in a variety of extracurricular activities during your stay.

Finally, I would like to express my wish to keep in touch with you. We consider you to be our best ambassadors and I hope that, after a fruitful and pleasant stay at PKU, you will remain an integral part of our academic community.
