Yuxi Normal University

So I'm taking the plunge, I have enough money to keep me going for a year so I can study Chinese somewhere in China. It will be tight though so I need to study somewhere cheap which is why I've ended up strongly considering Yuxi, has anyone got anything to say about it. Also, on the cucas website there are plenty of other affordable universities only they don't offer cheap dorms, Yuxi's costs 1200 RMB per year.

There have been other threads, but I cannot find them by searching at the moment.

Yuxi is a nice town, not far from Kunming. The campus is pretty. I've been there for a look around, but never took any courses.

Don't know about the dorms. I would double-check that rent figure; it sounds too low. If you figure a 9-month academic year, that's only 134 Yuan a month or about 5 Yuan a night. That's too little, even for a bunk in an 8-bed dorm room.

Go for it! Best of luck! Let us know how it goes.

Thanks for the support mate :) It does seem rather low but the website does quote that price, it's the same price for KUST in Kunming too. You do have to pay for utilities though but I doubt that will amount to much.

Looks like a bargain. I wouldn't mind living in Yuxi. It's a gentle and relaxed place.

I am also considering going to this university. :D

Their website (http://icec.yxnu.net/) is obviously outdated but still has useful information.

The tuition + accommodation fees for a 6-month period are very appealing (roughly 16,760 RMB for a 2-bedroom apartment or 12,560 RMB if you opt to stay in the dorms).

I would probably start there during the winter, or spring term at the latest as I am committed to another university until then.

Maybe I'll see you there? Good luck with your studies and wherever you decide to go!

Hi, I'm also planing to study in Yuxi from the second semester (2014 feb.).

It's probably the most pleasant city in china, I have spent there some weeks few years ago as a traveler.

I found some videos which are made by the students, in those you can see the dorm , the Uni and surroundings...may helps to decide.

Here is one old blog from 2008 from a US guy who spent there one year trying out the rented apartment and the dorm also.

And a video from an expat riding through the city center.

Thank you, Titus!

Reading through that blog now.

I may end up there in November or February if I decide to continue studying at the university I am at now. So I may see you there and good luck regardless!
