Areas of study open for exchange students

According to Tsinghua's regulation, exchange students coming to Tsinghua can take up to 20 credits courses. Among those 20 credits, no more than 8 credits can be courses of other departments. That is to say, 8 credits can be non-law courses. Undergraduate exchange students are allowed to register for those postgraduate courses, and in the same manner, exchange students of postgraduate level are allowed to take undergraduate courses.

Tsinghua Law School has English courses for spring semester and fall semester.

Keep in mind that not all courses are available for exchange students and a more detailed course list with courses for exchange students will be published during the registration period. Not all courses offered by masters are available for exchange students, for example courses from the masters MPA (Public Administration), MPP (Public Policy) and MBA (Business Administration). Also the courses offered by the Schwarzman College (Master of Global Affairs) are not available to exchange students, given that they require the payment of Tsinghua’s tuition fees.
