Peking University: A university of prestige

Peking University, the former Jing Shi Da Xue Tang (the Metropolitan University) of the Qing Dynasty, was founded in December 1898. The Metropolitan University was then not only the most prestigious institution of higher learning but also the highest administrative organization of education in China.

Peking University is now a comprehensive and national key university. While still laying stress on basic sciences, the university has paid special attention to the development of applied sciences. It strives not only for the simultaneous improvements in teaching and research work, but also for the promotion of interaction and mutual promotion among various subjects.

As the nation’s most prestigious academic institution, Peking University’s mission now is to rank among the world's best universities. As part of this mission the university provides academic programs, creates research opportunities, offers policy initiatives, and sponsors collaboration between organizations in order to support the internal growth of China and expand China’s participation in the world economy.
