Beijing Foreign Studies University, or BFSU, is one of China’s top universities under the direct administration of the Chinese Ministry of Education (MOE). It is listed under Project 985, Project 211 and the Double First-Class Project of China. Located in Haidian District, Beijing, BFSU has two campuses which are separated by North Xisanhuan Road -- the West Campus and the East Campus.

Guided by its motto “Learn with an open mind; Serve a great cause”, BFSU has trained a significant number of professionals with strong language competence who went on to work in and outside China as diplomats, translators/interpreters, educators, entrepreneurs, journalists, lawyers, and bankers, among other occupations. In the BFSU alumni community, over 400 have worked as ambassadors, and over 2,000 as counselors. BFSU is thus known as “a cradle for diplomats”.  

Today, BFSU continues to pursue development through talent training, academic studies and global exchanges, implements moral education, and cultivates interdisciplinary talents with patriotism, international perspective and professionalism. It also accelerates construction of a future as an international, characteristic, high-level and comprehensive world-class foreign studies university, and strives to promote China’s global presence so that the world can come to better understand the country.
