As we all know ,there are many famous universities in China. Different people have different opinions on top universities. What does it feel like to attend the top Chinese University？
Due to China's national examination system, top universities are definitely a highly competitive environment. The students who have progressed to top universities are all very good. They are almost all talents in this country. Despite the fierce competition, I still feel that this is a very friendly competition and everyone cooperates with each other. I am a math student, and Chinese students here often help us.
For me, the strongest feeling during my two years in top University：
Freedom. Both in terms of Academic and campus life, We don't have to get up on certain time to do morning exercise unified in my university. And the way we choose course are flexible. Apart from our major course, we can choose nearly every course of every major we are interested in, which provide us with the chance to learn something beyond our major and communicate with students with other majors. You can be a total geek or scholastic leader,or, you can do some strange things like playing games and winning the world champion (the first Chinese DOTA world champion are from my school). The counselors only appears when you seem to face some serious problems that can not solved by yourself. We can discuss everything here from our daily college life to the election of president in United States. It's awesome.
Innovation and entrepreneurship. There is a special class like Intensive Training Program of Innovation and Entrepreneurship, which is focus on cultivating young entrepreneurs. It became the earliest entrepreneurship education in China. There is a lot of activities, since I was working and studying at the same time I didn’t enjoy a lot of them as other students do. But you can expect have a lot of things to do in there. No matter if you are a Chinese Student or a Foreigner.
Resources: There are a lot of good teachers. The University is full of resources and you can manage to meet a lot of people. It is a prestigious University in China, everyone will admire in some kind of level you because you manage to study in top university.
I studied in Chinese top university for six months as an international student from the US. Taking only language classes, my view of the normal curriculum might be a bit skewed, but I can say the school's environment is very good. People in the top university are very hardworking in their major. It makes me an international student impressed. I like Chinese university and hope to study again in China.
Top University is always beautiful with its buildings and plants. The city makes comfortable living by offering easy reach to all hangout places. The quality of teaching is almost the most, not only famous professors in China but also famous professors from abroad. Many majors are national key specialties and are strongly supported by the Chinese government. Many famous universities are comprehensive universities, and all the majors you want to study are existing.
In a word, foreign students are satisfied with the learning atmosphere and environment of China's top universities.
Let's find the differences between top universities and ordinary universities.
1. ACADEMIC FACILITIES
For a university, good academic facilities, such as libraries, laboratories, and lecture halls, are needed, and most universities do well in this area. However, top universities are better equipped than other universities. As a scientist, you will value the most advanced laboratory space and cutting-edge equipment; if you are a historian, a library with many books is essential for your degree.
2. TEACHING QUALITY
As the previous students said, the quality of teaching in different universities may vary greatly. The university's training objectives for students may be different, as well as in the way of teaching. More importantly, the number of contact hours on the rankings indicates that the amount of time for the teaching staff is important; in fact it is quality. At some of the top universities, scholars challenge students in small groups, pick their papers and submit them to rigorous academic examinations. Other universities are limited to classroom instruction, submit team practice reports, and give some students the opportunity to be lazy.
3. CAREER PROSPECTS
You can find information about graduate employment rates in the college admissions brochure, but as always, the statistics show only partial images. If you have a reputable university degree, you may find that your job search has become quite easy, and the employer team's general college graduates scoff at it.
4. SOCIAL FACILITIES
Most universities are equipped with social spaces such as bars, movie rooms, communal lounges, sports facilities and more. Some rooms have extra amenities such as an on-site gym, restaurant or internal dental clinic or GP. Good universities, these social facilities will be more comprehensive.
Therefore, you know that studying in top universities is an extraordinary experience.
