Getting the most out of your international student experience
The Social Programme is co-ordinated by the INTO China Student Services team. It aims to help students form new friendships with students who have also arrived at Nankai University from countries all over the world. The programme includes trips to inspirational cultural sites around Tianjin and getting to know the local nightlife venues. Soon Tianjin will feel like your exciting new home and you'll quickly settle into student life.
Make Friends and Experience Chinese Culture
Studying in China opens a whole world of new experiences and the chance to explore 'real' China by socialising with both international and home students. Studying will be your main priority but taking part in non-academic activities is important to building a network of friends and adjusting smoothly to your new life as a Nankai University student.
The INTO China Student Services team organises an exciting programme of activities designed to help you make the most of your time studying in China. The programme includes trips to places of interest in Tianjin and the areas that surround the city, such as ancient temples, museums, and the Great Wall, as well as visits to cultural activities including the Peking Opera. The University campus also offers a number of options for socialising such as enjoying the arts, having a go at sports or watching team games at the University's sports stadium.

Learning the language
When you arrive you will attend an Orientation programme, carefully designed to introduce you to campus life and study in Tianjin. It is important that you attend the orientation, which includes a formal academic induction where you will register for your course, receive your timetable and select your modules for academic programmes. It will also include social activities, which are a great way to meet new friends and explore the city of Tianjin.
