To find the right university in China, you need to consider what your goal of study is. For Chinese language and culture learning, you should apply to a university with good Chinese language program with cultural courses. For undergraduate and graduate degree program, you have to consider the academic standard and employment opportunities.

When applying to top universities in China, such as Peking University, Tsinghua University and Fudan University, admission to degree programs is limited and extremely competitive. You must be well-informed, well-prepared, and very determined to work very hard to gain admission.
