Beijing International Studies University (BISU) is a renowned institution of higher education of multi-disciplines, offering subjects and courses of literature, management, economics, and law, with the foreign languages and literature as its dominant discipline and tourism management as its specialized discipline. It is an important base in China for the teaching and research of foreign languages, translation, tourism, and economics and foreign trade.


BISU, founded in 1964 with the support of China’s late premier Zhou Enlai, was one of China's first few institutions that offered undergraduate education in foreign languages. In its history, BISU was once under the successive leaderships of China International Cultural Liaison Commission, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the People's Government of Beijing Municipality, Ministry of Education and China National Tourism Administration. Today, BISU is sponsored by the People's Government of Beijing Municipality.


With “Integrity, Diligence, Truth, and Leadership” as its motto, BISU has long dedicated itself to passing down eastern and western civilizations and cultural and educational exchanges between China and other countries. Students are inspired to learn from both civilizations and achieve the unity of knowing and doing, while its exceptional faculty is committed to offering students education in the spirit of humanities education. BISU has accumulated profound academic tradition and distinctive experience in teaching, and had a strong faculty, including a group of recognized professors and famous translators in China.


The following goal is set at the University’s Eighth CPC Congress. To build BISU into a teaching-research oriented, internationalized, innovative and application-typed university, BISU determines two programs as key disciplines: Foreign Languages & Literature and Tourism Management, offers students a broad, interdisciplinary education with an international perspective, and educates qualified graduates working for the development of the Capital and inter-cultural exchange affairs. BISU’s initial goal is to become a first-rate foreign studies university with global influence in China by 2022. By 2035, with the established educational system of internationalization that serves the country’s modernization and the cultivation of application-typed, high-end and composite talents, BISU will have established a research system characterized by its special function to serve the country’s strategy and the Capital’s tasks. With its key disciplines listed as the country’s first-rate programs, BISU will be built into China’s top world-recognized modern foreign language university.


At present, BISU offers 45 undergraduate majors (including 26 Bachelor's programs in modern foreign languages). Five primary disciplines and 29 secondary disciplines have been authorized to confer Master’s degrees. It also offers six professional Master’s degree programs. BISU has a Joint Doctoral Program in translation with Binghamton University-the State University of New York, a Joint Doctoral Program in tourism management with University of South Carolina, Columbia, and two post-doctoral research stations (co-founded with Social Sciences Academic Press and with Capital University of Economics and Business). It has two municipal first-rate majors (Tourism Management, Foreign Language and Literature) and four municipal key disciplines (Foreign Language and Literature, Tourism Management, Business Management, International Trade) of Beijing, four national characteristic majors (Japanese, Arabic Language, English, Tourism Management), and one pilot reform major of Ministry of Education (Japanese).


Since 2016 when BISU started the postdoctoral programs, it has cultivated 15 postdoctoral scholars. Eleven of them have already left the research stations after completing their corresponding researches. The rest of the four scholars have pursued teaching at BISU after passing the assessments made by the university.  


BISU will admit postdoctoral scholars for 2021 through open enrolment, with specific information listed as follows.
