Education in Chinese Style!


Txinghua University is China´s largest research university in Beijing and the 4th best university in the world according to the Times Higher Education rankings. The University is known for being the best university in the world in teaching engineering and computer science based on output and performance and has topped Caltech, MIT and the National University of Singapore.


The university was established in 1911 after an agreement with president Theodore Roosevelt to exchange students of the United States coming to study in China in turn allowing Chinese Students to study in the United States.  The University also served as a preparatory college for Chinese students to study courses ad the English language that would help them settle in US universities. The University´s educational model has its origins when the Republic of China reformed into the People’s Republic of China and adopted soviet style education. Today the education still remains largely based on the Soviet model with a few additions of the American Model and even the current Russian educational model, therefore proving to be one of the most unique and progressive educational research universities in the whole world!

Today, the university also teaches Life Sciences, Humanities, Social Sciences and Law and this dates to the 1980´s when Txinghua University began incorporating China´s major Law, Science, Humanities and social studies colleges and today is China´s most diverse university.  

Currently, Txinghua and MIT have formed the Txinghua-MIT Global program and therefore the two universities exchange their engineering courses, giving both Americans and Chinese students the benefit of studying the best engineering education available.

Any student who is looking to take engineering or mathematics majors should apply to this university without a secong thought. Txingua University´s engineering courses have state of the art professors, technology and as mentioned before, an education that is so diverse and modern that without a doubt, will turn any of their engineering & mathematics students into brilliant minds.

It is also worth mentioning that other courses taken in Txinghua such as Law or Humanities are just as good as their engineering and mathematics courses, therefore allowing any student within China to have the best education available not only within the country, but the whole world.

Sports-wise Txinghua University is also excellent! The university feature China´s largest sports unions with 38 teams for 26 types of sports games. Among China´s sports games include fencing, climbing, middle-distance running, table tennis, baseball and softball, badminton, tennis, handball, aerobics, chess and other sports teams such as basketball, shooting, rowing and even includes sports for women, making this a very competitive university and possibly one of the world´s most competitive universities ever.  

In overall, Txinghua University is the best university for engineering and Mathematics and should be the number one on the list of those particular students. However, anyone wishing to take majors that are not engineering or mathematics should still seriously consider the chance to study in the university as the educational model combined with the excellent state of the art professors will equally turn all students into brilliant minds and hardworking young-ins.


Social life is also very engaging. Events and outing are organized very often and people can be seen organizing parties in the dorms, students meet up for clubbing and at times, even meetings with other universities are organized therefore displaying the universities outgoing nature especially among the international and the American community.


Girne American University is definitely an experience one shouldn´t miss. From the state of the Art modern education to the very international and cozy environment.
