Tsinghua University

Tsinghua University (sometimes abbreviated as THU and also romanized as Qinghua University) is a research university located in Beijing, China, and one of the nine members in the C9 League.

The institution was originally established in 1911 under the name “Tsinghua College” and had been renamed several times since then: from “Tsinghua School” which was used one year after its establishment, to “National Tsinghua University” which was adopted three years after the foundation of its university section in 1925. With its motto of Self-Discipline and Social Commitment, Tsinghua University describes itself as being dedicated to academic excellence, the well-being of Chinese society and to global development. It has been consistently regarded by most domestic and international university rankings as one of the top higher learning institutions in mainland China.
