Different teaching styles
Nankai University teachers
The University teaching faculty's experience ranges from teaching in universities, to conducting scholarly research. Many of the teachers often work in the field before turning to teaching, bringing their experience to the classroom. You will find teachers who have taught abroad or been international students themselves. They know first hand the challenges of studying in an entirely new environment and can share this experience with you.
INTO China support staff
Based on the University campus, the INTO China Student Services team is dedicated to supporting you throughout your studies and provides a range of support services that specifically meet the needs of international students. When you arrive in Tianjin, the Student Services team will help you settle in to student life and remain your first point of contact for non-academic issues. The team speak a range of languages and can assist students studying an English-medium degree or Chinese Language Summer Programme.

What is the benefit of studying at Nankai?
Nankai has a very special status in the educational history of China. The first Premier and first Minister of foreign affairs, Zhou EnLai, is Nankai Alumni. It is close to Beijing which provides us with easy access to political events and also many weekly conferences, seminars and meetings in which scholars discuss significant world events. The School of Political Science Studies ranks top 5 in China.
What makes Nankai graduates stand out in the job market?
You can study International Relations in other countries too, but what you can learn by being in China is not the same as reading books or articles. The key point is that you will have actual experience. English-language media does not portray China the way it actually is. The unique experience which you are going to have as a student here is that you are going to know China on the spot. And such kind of understanding is what other students of International Relations from around the world cannot get.
