Accommodations

Standard Local Apartment: Please do not expect your accommodations will look like a hotel or a palace; it is a very ordinary Chinese style apartment. As Beijing is an enormous city, most people commute to work, it usually takes about 45 minutes to 1 hour from one place to another during rush hour. Also our school is located in the Central Business District, so it takes about 40 minutes from where you stay to the school, but hey, you are here to learn and for the experience, so be prepared for an amazing experience!

  1. Single room – US$ 300:    Furnished apartments with 2 or 3 bedrooms, standard kitchen and bathroom.  You will need to purchase your own sheets, pillows and toiletries.
