The capital of the People’s Republic of China, Beijing has a long and storied history dating back over 3 millennia. It has served as the nerve center of China through several imperial dynasties, the Republican era, and the founding of the People’s Republic, and it continues to be one of the most important geopolitical centers in the world. The city is one of the most developed in China, and is home to over 41 Fortune 500 companies (2nd in the world only to Tokyo, Japan). Today’s Beijing is an amazing and engaging place to live and learn. Home to the Chinese central government, ancient temples and palaces such as the Forbidden City, old “hutongs “(old neighborhoods gentrified into shopping and dining hotspots), and a gateway city to the Great Wall, there is never a shortage of cultural activities to enjoy. USD250 - USD1,000 per semester. Applications on API website.
