The Minzu University of China is one of China’s most important comprehensive universities, and it is one of the 38 key universities receiving direct development support from the Chinese government. The goal for the Central University for Nationalities is to build up as ‘a first-class ethnic university in the world’.
The Central University for Nationalities has an advantageous geographical position, being located in an urban district of Beijing, and transportation is very convenient. There are many buses and a subway outside the front gate of CUN. CUN is situated in a university district, near the National Library of China to its south, and the Chinese ‘Silicon Valley’-Zhongguancun High-Technology Industry Base to its north. It has a beautiful gardenlike campus, something rarely seen in northern China.
