Peking University has signed inter-school exchange agreement with more than 260 universities, including 68 regular exchange programs. Students have the opportunity to be an exchange student to foreign universities such as Yale University, Tokyo University, Waseda University, Sciences-Po Paris, and other world-class institutions for a period of six months to a year.
