Exchange Studies at Beihang University

!! Dear partners and students: from March 1, 2017, please visit our new English-language website: for accurate information. This page will no longer be updated.

What can I study?

Beihang is one of the first Chinese universities to offer postgraduate programmes in English for international students. Currently, over 250 of our courses can be taught in English. At the undergraduate level, seven subject areas offer English-taught courses. More choices are available at the postgraduate level.

Incoming exchange students can select courses across a range of subject areas and are not restricted to courses only in their major. It is also possible for undergraduate exchange students to choose courses from postgraduate programmes, and vice versa. However, courses are taught only once a year, either in the spring semester or in the autumn semester. One credit at Beihang generally equals to 16 hours of lecture time, around 2 – 2.5 ECTS credits.

In parallel with your regular studies, you can take Chinese language courses for 4 to 20 hours, depending on your proficiency level. Application for such courses takes place on arrival.

Exchange students are welcome to do final-year projects or research internships supervised by our professors. Available opportunities can be found in the brochure, compiled annually by the International Division. Applicants should first contact their prospective supervisors by sending their CV and motivation letter while copying With all resources at hand, if you still have difficulty in matching professors, please request for help from the International Team.
