PRIce of one beer

  • Nicolas (Fall 2019): Living costs depend very much on your lifestyle. If you only eat in the school's canteens you can spend less than 5-10 € per day. "Western" activities/food is mostly a bit pricey. Didi (Chinese version of Uber is very cheap). Public transport is cheap. Price of one beer: 1-2€

Tsinghua is a great experience if you want to learn more about the Chinese culture, lifestyle and way of education, and it is also a good spot to explore other regions within Asia.
