Tsinghua University


I'm currently studying my Masters of Chinese Politics and Foreign Policy at Tsinghua University, located in Northwest Beijing. The campus is huge, known as China's MIT, and has an interesting mix of architecture. Above is a campus map and thankfully, also has a high rank of employability. I'm sure it's only because Xi, a Tsinghua grad, is currently the president of China. Regardless, Tsinghua stacks up well with other universities here in China as well as on an international level. I'm proud to have been accepted to this school and although the next 2 years will be challenging, I'm excited for what the future holds.
