Tsinghua University Chinese Courses

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

This is Udit here, from New Delhi, India..

I am a 22, Male, and currently working in a bank. I am already a Post-Grad, and started to work three months back. I studied Mandarin Part-Time in University, can write around 1000 characters, but am slowly forgetting all of them.

I have resigned from the job, and coming to Tsinghua for a year. Have already got the admission, but the package is still to arrive. I am interested in taking an off-campus accommodation. Please add me on fb or gmail- [email protected], because i am new to this site, and do not check it often. My girlfriend is studying in BFSU, andd she is a Chinese, so I can ask for her help to search for apartments if we can find 4-5 people to live together. Please ping me and lets get to know more about each other. :)

@ Grace, I was born and raised an hour outside of Atlanta, GA, which part of California are you from?

When do you plan on leaving for Tsinghua? As far as renting arrangements have you tried liveinchina.com or beijingrents.com?

Hi everyone!

I've received my admission package yesterday, what about you guys?

When I first read older topics I was quite worried about Tsinghua's organization, but so far everything's going smootly. Still have to wait for the dorms application though :)

Hey dear people!

I will be studying at QH from this fall. But unlike Timtim I am very dissapointed with all their organization. Especially pissed I am with the whole dorms application. The online registration date they at first set was 25 July. After logging in, I saw that they have changed the booking date to august 9 and what's more unexpected - double-rooms will be available to check-in only after Sept 8! How it can be called? Is that caring about the students? Seems that we are simply having the relations - landlord-tenant.

Maybe It's a God's sign and I am told that there is no need to live on campus..))) I guess so. .Anyway, I am joining those guys who are looking for an off-campus accomodation.

Wishing everyone good luck with the housing issue and may everyone find the place they will be fully satisfied with! )

Hi everyone,

I will also be starting the language course this fall. I have a question regarding the dorms application. When I got the confirmation email, it said that I should apply on http://www.thutraining.com. However, this site never seems to load up for me. I have also emailed the school a few times, but no response. Any ideas what to do? I'd prefer to live on the campus in the first semester at least to get to know people better. And any ideas where to look for apartments near the campus? Thanks in advance, and looking forward to meeting you all in a month!

Hi Ma Te :) I don't have access to the website either from Croatia. I'll try again when I come back to France but I suspect the website is not up yet. Hope you're a little less worried now you know we're all in the same boat ;)

From the tsinghua's email:

2. About student dormitory application:

If you plan to live in the student dormitory, you need to apply online. The application time is (China time): 8:30am August 7, 2012 ― 8:00am August 8, 2012. Since we don’t have enough rooms for everyone, please apply as early as possible. The website is: http://www.thutraining.com. Login in with your student number and birth date. You can find your student number on your admission notice (10 digit number, 201243****). If you finally can not receive the admission package, you can find this number in your on-line application system. You need to pay deposit for dormitory reservation (RMB500, plus commission fee), so please have your bank card in hand when you do the on-line dormitory application.

Amita, did you write your e-mail in English? if so, i did the same, they didn't responde. When i tried it again (to sent them an e-mail) but in Chinese, they responded... :S So you should try it in Chinese....

My name is Nikolett and I am from Hungary. I applied to be a Chinese Language Student but I seem to be accepted as a general scholar in Chinese Language and Literature thaught in Chinese, but I don't know why? Especially because my Chinese is not enough good e.g. to read Chinese novels :S Does anyone know if I will be able to just take the Chinese Language courses once I'm there?

I hope I can talk with the university and change the program to Chinese studies when I arrive to China.

Best wishes.

Everyone, posts about accommodation should NOT go here and will get deleted. Please see the first post for links to follow. Sorry if this seems inconvenient, but the aim is to keep on-campus accommodation (relevant to all Tsinghua students), off-campus accommodation (relevant to all Wudaokou / Haidian students) and Chinese language course info (relevant to all Tsinghua Chinese language students) separate.

Hi!

I'm a little worried about the visa, I should have taken care of it earlier but I really couldn't. For a F visa, do we need an invitation letter/visa invitation/whatever from the authorities, or are the papers from the university enough?

Me too. I wouldn't worry about that. The Chinese Course must be part of that department, at least administratively... And don't you think "school of humanities and social sciences" has a nice ring to it? ;p
