Number of places available

4 places per year.

UU’s faculty of Law also has an exchange contract with this partner university so if you are a Law student and wish to follow courses in your own study area, you will be going to Tsinghua via the Law contract instead of the Universitywide contract.


Selection was necessary in the past few years.

You are advised not to place this exchange destination as a second or third choice.



If you have any questions about this universitywide partner university, contact the universitywide International Office.
