The predecessor of Beijing Foreign Studies University (BFSU) was Yan\'an Foreign Languages School, which emerged from the Russian Language Section of the Third Branch of the Chinese People’s Anti-Japanese Military and Political College. After the founding of the People’s Republic of China in 1949, Yan’an Foreign Languages School merged with the School of Foreign Affairs to become Beijing Foreign Languages Institute. In 1959, Beijing Russian Institute was assimilated into Beijing Foreign Languages Institute. In 1994, with the approval of the then State Education Commission, the Institute changed its name to Beijing Foreign Studies University.
Among its over 7,000 registered students, there are around 5,000 full-time undergraduates, with over 1,000 postgraduates and 1,000 international students. There are more than 300 professors and associate professors, over 200 assistant professors.
The university also employs more than 110 international experts and instructors every year.
BFSU distinguishes itself in such research fields as foreign languages and literature; world history and culture; translation and popularization of foreign literature, together with international studies, which has earned BFSU a prominent position in contemporary Chinese academic research.
