Application Notice for the Pre-University Program for International Students (Spring 2021 Entry)

Introduction

Peking University’s Pre-University Program for International Students (PUP) aims to make use of our school’s excellent educational resources to train a cohort of outstanding global scholars. It provides academically-outstanding high-school graduates, that wish to pursue an undergraduate degree at our school, with one to two years of preparatory training. The PUP pays equal attention to the accumulation of language-related knowledge and the training of language ability. It not only aims to improve all aspects of participants’ Chinese, but also places particular importance on the broadening of students’ general knowledge, academic horizons and ability to think and study independently, with a view to building a strong academic and linguistic foundation for future undergraduate study.

Students enrolling for spring entry will be required to take a placement test at the beginning of the first term and will study for a total of one and a half years (three terms).
