The world is changing. At the forefront of this change is China. We know this from what we read and from what we hear, but now it is time to experience these changes first-hand. We know that you will probably have many questions in the coming weeks as you prepare to embark upon your journey. We want you to know that we are here for you. To get started, please download the Acceptance Packet below. As questions arise throughout your preparation, we invite you to engage with The Community and talk with staff and students who are in Beijing and who have lived firsthand the questions you may have.
We know that the coming months may seem hectic at times, but keep it simple, and follow our Timeline. We will see you in no time!
Beijing has four distinct seasons. Expect a short windy spring, long hot summer, cool pleasant autumn, and long chilly winter. The hottest month is July (86 °F-104 °F) and the coldest is January (average 32°F).
