Beijing Language and Culture University (BLCU), a university directly under the National Ministry of Education, was established in 1962 with the guidance of Prime Minister Zhou Enlai. In June 1964 it was designated as Beijing Language Institute. It was renamed as Beijing Language and Culture University and simplified to Beijing Language University. BLCU, known as The Mini-United Nations, is the only university of its kind in China that offers Chinese language and culture courses to foreign students. Meanwhile, BLCU provides professional courses in various fields, such as foreign languages, Chinese, information science, finance, etc. to Chinese students. What’s more, BLCU helps foster the growth of our academic faculty and supplies language courses designed for those who plan to study abroad. Over 50 years of development has made BLCU a multidisciplinary university that has enhanced language teaching and research, with synergetic development in fields such as Chinese, foreign languages and other relevant disciplines. Since its foundation in 1962, BLCU has been an important academic base for language and cultural research and the cradle for advanced international talents in China. We made the explicit aim and plan to build a first-class language university and to promote the development of four great academic fields.
