Many international students are interested in studying Chinese in Beijing and sometimes they get confused between BLCU Beijing Language and Culture University and BLCC Beijing Chinese Language and Culture College.
Their names are quite similar! But lets compare the different ones to help you choose!
BLCU is located near to Wudaokou station in the middle of the student district. Some more information about BLCU is here.
BLCC is located outside of Beijing in Changping district, close to the great wall. Some more information bout BLCC is here.
The price of the standard Chinese programs is relatively the same.
However the main difference is the location, and the dormitory.
BLCU dormitories are currently limited. BLCU may suit students who prefer to live off campus, and may be interested in meeting students from other universities, cafes and some restaurants, or close to the subway.
BLCC may suit students who prefer to be in a quieter environment, it is close to the mountains and great wall. There are enough dormitories on campus. Because there is dormitory accommodation, the price of accommodation in BLCC is therefore is lower and may also suit students who are interested to save some money.
