Great campus facilities, i haven't had a direct contact with the administration of the school but if am to judge by outcome and result, i will say administration department is always on its toes to bring nothing but the best. The curriculum is rich as all of my Lecturer are well grounded in their field of study, you see so much passion as they try to pass the seed of knowledge to us. In conclusion, Nankai university is a great school to study.
This has been a crazy adventure to say the least. I didn't know what to expect but it has been a great experience for me to study at Nankai and learn Chinese along the way. I have made many friends and good business connections after I graduate. I would recommend Nankai master's program for those who are brave enough to live in a different country with adfferent culture and language. It's challenging at times but it is well worth it!
I like the Nankai campus because it reminds me of my own back in the states: big, beautiful, and it's own little city. You could live your live at Nankai in this bubble having never left campus (but you shouldn't, of course). Being an INTO member of Nankai's student body, I cannot attest to direct administrative experiences with Nankai admin. What little I have come in contact with (the library, ID center/account mgmt) have been friendly and helpful. The teaching quality in my department is top notch. This is the best part about Nanaki for me. I feel as thought the professors and assistant professors here really know their fields and are passionate about what they are teaching us, because they themselves are immersed within the subject matter for their own research. This results in a rich curriculum that is well thought out across every class. Every case study and journal we read and discuss can be tied directly to the content of another class. Nankai is a great bang for the buck, academically, especially from a US perspective. However, the on campus accommodation seems slightly higher when compared to the surrounding market. From a US perspective, rent for a dorm room at Nankai is a steal, costing only a fraction of the rent for a dorm room of equal or lesser quality back in the states. A double dorm room with its own shower/bath is just under $300 USD per month, flat rate. A double in the US with with a common shower/bathroom area would cost over $1,500 USD per month.
Nankai University is a wonderful place to complete your studies in China. It is situated in Tianjin - a modern, fast paced and thriving city with endless possibilities to explore and soak in China. The campus is very large and scenic and more or less a small city within itself. Academic staff are welcoming and accommodating to international students, particularly professors who try to integrate conversation and discussion into lectures often. Fellow Nankai students are friendly and excited to meet international students. Transportation, lodging and food are all inexpensive compared to home. For transportation, everyone here rides bicycles but there is a great and easy to navigate transit system for buses and subway; taxis are everywhere and cheap. The campus has tons of food options, a gym, sports facilities, park areas, cafes and shopping and is nearby some major groceries, restaurants, shopping complexes and parks. It is comfortable to live here making it easier to focus on studying while living abroad. After one year, I've really been continually pleased with my experience here.
Nankai Uni is a truly great place to study. The academics are good, even though they're somewhat different from what Western unis offer. The people are incredibly friendly and the experience of studying here is absolutely worth the time and effort. Besides, Tianjin is a nice city with Beijing being just half an hour away by bullet train.
Coming to Nankai University is has giving me a different idea and view about the Chinese people and culture. The lecturers are very interested in the students affairs, they always carry the whole class along. Nankai has a conducive environment for learning and training of tomorrows leaders.
