Tianjin Foreign Studies University (TFSU)

Tianjin Foreign Studies University (Chinese: 天津外国语大学, Pinyin: Tiānjīn wàiguóyǔ dàxué), nickname as “天外”, is one of the top eight foreign studies universities in China. Tianjin Foreign Studies University (TFSU), specialized in language and cultural studies, is one of the earliest eight such designated institutions of higher learning. The university provides undergraduate and graduate instruction in the Humanities, Social Sciences, and Management.
Tianjin (formerly spelled Tientsin) Foreign Studies University’s roots can be traced back to 1921, when Tientsin Industry & Commerce University was founded at the present site on Machang Road. The university was renamed Jingu University and Hebei University, successively. In 1964, at the proposal of former Chinese premier Zhou Enlai, the then-Qinhuangdao Foreign Languages Vocational School (later renamed Tianjin Foreign Languages Vocational School) was chartered, which served as yet another predecessor of the university. In 1974, two antecedents, then-Tianjin Foreign Languages School and Tianjin Teachers’ College (today’s Tianjin Normal University), merged into a new school known as Tianjin Foreign Language Institute. In 2010, with the approval of the Ministry of Education, Tianjin Foreign Languages Institute achieved the name “Tianjin Foreign Studies University”, marking an exciting new phase in the growth and development of TFSU. TFSU began to offer graduate programs in 1979, and was designated in 1981 as one of the first institutions authorized by the State Council to confer Master’s Degrees, which was a great leap forward in the school’s evolution.
