 Effective Mandarin Training Begins on January 7, 2014!

The Inter-University Program for Chinese Language Studies (IUP) is currently accepting applications for Spring Semester 2014. IUP is the premier U.S.-sponsored Chinese language program intended for students who aspire to truly advanced competence, whether they be undergraduates, graduates, people out of school, professionals, or established scholars.

Prerequisites include the equivalent of two years of college level Mandarin. IUP’s center is located on the Tsinghua University campus in Beijing. Over 50 years in operation, IUP is more than a language program, it is a community. Dozens of IUP alums live in Beijing (and elsewhere in China) engaged in a wide range of occupations. IUP alumni include senior persons in business, government, academia, media, NGOs, and other occupations.
