A main focus of the European Chinese Language and Culture Programme at Peking University is to provide students from our European partner institutions with intense Chinese language classes, seminars and lectures, that are fully and seamlessly integrated with their study programmes. Courses are designed and quality controlled by us and our partners.


The ECLC office also provides a platform for academic exchange. Guest professors and visiting scholars from Peking Unversity are regularly invited to the European partner institutions to conduct lectures and engage in research. The ECLC also provides support for visiting scholars and students from the partner institutions.


The ECLC office organises accommodation, language partner exchanges, and extracurricular activities, e.g. excursions as well as seasonal activities, often organised together with PKU’s School of International Studies. Outside of the classroom students may fully immerse in a Chinese living surrounding and gain a deeper understanding of Chinese society.
