Application Notice of Yuke Experimental Class for International Students (2021 Entry)


Set up in 2000, PKU Yuke strives to use our School’s excellent educational resources to train a cohort of outstanding global students. It provides one to two years of preparatory training for academically outstanding high-school graduates who wish to pursue an undergraduate degree at Peking University. On this milestone point that marks the 20th anniversary of Yuke, we set up an experimental class devoted to comprehensive education and provide students with professional language training, opportunities for international cultural communication, and smooth transition to “Double First-Class” undergraduate education, and various other resources. After accomplishing the study, students who pass the examination and meet the requirements will be admitted directly to undergraduate study at Peking University.


Experienced Teaching Staff & Specifically-Designed Teaching Material

Students will major in Chinese and minor in math, taught respectively by teachers from the School of Chinese as a Second Language and the School of Mathematical Sciences. Other courses and extracurricular activities will utilize the university’s excellent resources and offer students a diverse and high-quality study experience.

Teachers from the School of Chinese as a Second Language have high academic qualifications, of whom 65% have a Doctor degree, and almost all are equipped with teaching experience at overseas universities or Confucius Institutes, hence enabling them to understand the learning characteristics of international students studying Chinese thoroughly. The textbooks are the Boya series compiled and reviewed by teachers of the School and published by Peking University Press, which ensure a clear, systematic and scientific teaching objective.

Moreover, the School of Mathematical Sciences found an expert group to compile a set of textbooks specially designed for Yuke teaching, tailored for students’ needs and adaption to undergraduate study.


Undergraduate Experience & Liberal Education

Students of Yuke Experimental Class will have the chance to take courses together with undergraduates and experience university study in advance. At the beginning of each semester, several popular general education courses will be selected carefully, which students can choose to audit based on their interest. In addition to improving language capabilities, this can broaden students’ general knowledge, academic horizons and cultivate their ability to think and study independently.


Combining Learning with Practice & Unifying Virtue with Talent

Our education emphasizes both academic and practical ability. Various extracurricular activities and cultural trips will be conducted to help students integrate into the group and the university, to establish and build a harmonious Yuke family. There are also abundant recreational activities to help students balance work and rest.


Comfortable Accommodation & International Companionship

Accommodation at Peking University’s Zhongguanyuan Global Village will be reserved for Yuke students. Students are guaranteed a safe and comfortable accommodation and can enjoy a pleasant study and living experience with peers worldwide. Whether in class or life, students will be immersed in an academically inspiring and mentally relaxing environment.
