Program Information
IUP Homepage

The Inter-University Program for Chinese Language Studies (IUP), formerly known as the 'Stanford Center,' is now in its 16th year in Beijing on the campus of Tsinghua University. IUP was originally established in Taipei, Taiwan in 1963 and in 1997 relocated to its current site in Beijing.

IUP is the premier U.S.-sponsored Chinese language program intended for students who aspire to truly advanced competence, whether they be undergraduates, graduates, professionals, or established scholars.

IUP currently offers a 32-week Academic Year Program and a 16-week Semester Option. All programs are located on the Tsinghua University campus in Beijing. IUP continues to be the most intensive and cost effective Chinese language program available to intermediate and advanced students worldwide. Compared with other well-known language programs in Beijing, IUP remains the most economical program when considering its low teacher-student ratio and highly effective methodology. No other program guarantees a 1:3 teacher-student ratio for group classes and a one hour daily private tutorial for less than IUP's current program fees.

IUP's mission is to raise students' Chinese language proficiency to a level at which they can function independently in professional or academic careers. Recent IUP graduates who have chosen to pursue careers in China have proven that their IUP-acquired linguistic skills have enabled them to function successfully in such areas as business consulting, management, public relations, law, education and journalism.
