The Chinese language is the major teaching language for International students in Chinese universities. Books periodicals and reference materials in university libraries and archives are mostly in Chinese language. International students, enrolled in a university or institute with Chinese as the medium of instruction should have a reasonable command over the language in order to complete their studies smoothly.
Undergraduate, Master Degree or PhD students and Visiting Students who don’t learn Chinese or whose Chinese proficiency doesn’t meet the needs of subjects studied before coming to China, have to learn basic Chinese for one or two school years upon arrival. Visiting Students and graduate students who are taught directly in foreign languages, need to pick up some Chinese for the convenience of daily life and study.
