Mar. 10, 2022

Established in 2000, Peking University’s Yuke Education strives to use our university’s excellent educational resources to cultivate a cohort of outstanding international talents. PKU Yuke provides one to two years of preparatory training for academically outstanding high-school graduates who wish to pursue an undergraduate degree at Peking University.  We are commited to creating a new pattern of all-rounded education, and we strive to provide professional language training, opportunities for international cultural exchanges, as well as a smooth transition to “Double First-Class” undergraduate education, and a variety of other educational platforms for foreign students studying at PKU. After preparatory studies, international students who pass the final examination and meet the admission standards are automatically admitted and can directly enter Peking University’s undergraduate program.

Experienced Teaching Staff & Exclusive Teaching Material

The preparatory major is Chinese and is taught by the School of Chinese Language Education. Aside from Chinese, students will also minor in mathematics, which is organized and taught by PKU’s School of Mathematical Sciences. Other courses and extracurricular activities will utilize the university’s excellent resources and provide students with a diversified and high-quality learning experience.

Teachers from the School of Chinese Language Education have high academic qualifications; 65% of the teachers have a Doctorate degree. The majority of the teachers have Chinese teaching experience in overseas universities or Confucius Institutes, hence enabling them to better understand the characteristics of Chinese learning for international students. The selection of textbooks is the Boya series, compiled and reviewed by PKU’s teachers, later published by Peking University Press, to ensure a clear, systematic and scientific teaching objectives.

Regarding the mathematic studies, an expert group was established by the School of Mathematics and Science to carefully compile exclusive textbooks adapted to the characteristics of preparatory teaching, fully adapting to the needs of preparatory students, and effectively assisting the connection with undergraduate study.

Undergraduate Experience & Liberal Education

PKU Yuke students will have the opportunity to take courses together with undergraduate students and experience university study and extracurricular activities in advance. At the beginning of each semester, several popular general education courses will be selected carefully, which students can choose to audit according to their own interests. In addition to improving students’ language skills, getting to know the undergraduate studies in advance 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. Aside from the academic curriculum, various extracurricular activities and cultural trips will be conducted to help students integrate into the group and into the university better and faster, to establish and build a harmonious Yuke family. There are also abundant recreational activities to help students balance work and rest.

Today on campus, international students can study with PKU’s outstanding young talents . Tomorrow, you will progress together with alumni partners on the global stage and lead the future.
Due to the global epidemic, students who cannot come to PKU can complete their Yuke study online.
