Chinese Universities Exchange Program (CUEP) at Peking University

The Chinese Universities Exchange Program (CUEP) is an exchange program between the University of Minnesota and Peking University in Beijing. Peking University is a comprehensive university designated as the “National Key Institutions.” University of Minnesota participants enroll in the Chinese language program for foreign students. In exchange, Peking University will send a faculty member to visit the University of Minneosta campus.

Program Length

Program Fee

The program fee is estimated at about $7,000 per semester, which covers resident tuition, dormitory housing, and student services fees. A  summary of participation can be found here (from year 2016-2017). Students may apply for scholarships offered by the China Center or other financial aid toward the program fee.

Academics

Sample courses include listening comprehension, oral narration, modern Chinese phonetics, Chinese characters and vocabulary, translation, and reading of newspapers and magazines. Students who pass the advanced exam of the HSK, a Chinese language proficiency test, may attend regular university classes. Independent research projects can also be arranged and in the past have included the architecture of Tianjin and Buddhist rituals. CUEP participants will receive a transcript from Peking University. This transcript is used to apply for University of Minnesota credit for courses taken in China.

Housing and Logistics

During the program, CUEP students live in the foreign students’ dormitory and share a double room with another international student. Students receive a monthly stipend to cover meal costs, books, and incidentals. The Chinese universities may arrange some free and/or subsidized local and regional excursions for foreign students. Students also receive discounts for plays, operas, museums, and other events. CUEP fosters academic and personal independence by immersing the students directly in a Chinese environment with no reliance on site directors or classes taught by American professors.

Eligibility

Application Process

One application form could be downloaded and submitted to China Center. You may apply for more than one program with one complete application packet.
