Beijing is China’s political, cultural and educational capital. The city’s history dates back three millennia and the metropolis has played an important role in China’s development ever since. Nowadays it is a flourishing modern metropolis where traditional Chinese culture meets the modern way of life.

The Beijing Branch is located in the heart of Sanlitun, close to the Central Business District. The school is conveniently located for the many expatriates who work and live in Beijing as well as for students learning Chinese or doing an internship. 

Sanlitun is one of Beijing’s prime areas for shopping, restaurants, bars and nightlife. Think of it as “New York’s Time Square meets China” and you’ll have an idea of what to expect. Even though there are many huge buildings and shopping centers, you can still find little pockets of calm and quiet to relax.
