Peking UniversityPKU 1

Peking University (PKU) is a comprehensive research university in Beijing.  It was the first modern national university of China, founded as the "Imperial University of Peking" in 1898 as a replacement of the ancient Guozijian, or Imperial Academy as part of the Hundred Days' Reform.  During the Sino-Japanese War from 1937, PKU along with Tsinghua and Nankai Universities moved and ended in Kunming, where they formed the National Southwestern Associated University.  After the war PKU returned to Beijing and was relocated shortly afterwards from the centre of the city to its current campus.

The University was influential in the birth of China's New Culture Movement and the Fourth of May Movement.  The first disturbances of the Cultural Revolution began at Peking University in 1966; education there ceased between 1966 and 1970.  Its students were also involved at Tiananmen Square protest of 1989 and many other significant events.  Peking University is regarded as one of the best universities in China and ranks highly in many domestic and international rankings.
