Study in Tianjin as an International Student
Tianjin is the fourth largest city in China with a population of 13 million. The city has been a major seaport and gateway to Beijing for over 150 years. One of the five National Central Cities of the PRC, Tianjin is a political, cultural, and economic hub.
Tianjin is called Pearl of the Bohai because of the dancing waters of the Bohai Gulf. The city’s weather is characterized by four distinct seasons – dry and windy springs, hot and rainy summers, cool and pleasant autumns, dry and cold winters.
Tianjin is one of the hubs of advanced innovation, industry and financial reform in China. Divided into a historic old city district and the more modern Binhai New Area, Tianjin has a perfect mix of history and urbanization.
Tianjin has a great deal of foreign political influence. From 1860 to 1903, the United Kingdom, the USA, France, Germany, Japan, Russia, Italy, Belgium and other western nations compelled the Qing regime to cede eastern Tianjin to them, dividing it up between themselves. This led to a proliferation of Western architectures and foreign-looking buildings.
Today, Tianjin is a commercial metropolis with hybrid cityscapes, a vibrant social life and advanced technology. Tianjin has an advanced transportation system which consists of the Tianjin Binhai Internationa Airport (TSN), bullet trains and buses.
If you want to study in Tianjin, the famous Nankai University is located in the city. Hebei University of Technology (HEBUT) is another notable university in the area. It is a key provincial university as well as one of the national universities under “Project 211”.
