Enrollment & Registration

Welcome to the International Business School of BFSU!

The following information is intended to facilitate your arrival in Beijing and help you settle in on our campus. Please read it carefully and plan your schedule accordingly.


1.      Arrival in Beijing:

a.      BFSU representatives will meet all new students at Beijing Capital International Airport Terminal 3, Exit for International Arrival to assist you with transportation to campus. In order to make use of this service, students should arrive on the following dates:

28 August: 09:00 – 19:00;

29 August: 09:00 – 14:00

On 28 August, the school bus will leave the airport at 10:30; 12:00; 14:00; and 19:00.

On 29 August, the school bus will leave the airport at 10:30; and 14:00.

(The University representative will be holding a BFSU sign at the Exit for International Arrival at Terminal 3. Please inform us of your flight details and arrival date in advance.)

b.      If your arrival date and time does not correspond with any of the preceding dates, you may choose one of the following options:

1)      You may take the airport shuttle bus – line 4. Shuttle bus price varies from CNY 15 to CNY 24 depending on the distance. Take the bus heading to Gong Zhu Fen (公主坟) station and get off at Su zhou Qiao (苏州桥) station. The price is CNY 24. This stop is only 300m away from the BFSU campus. If you are not confident in your Chinese speaking skills, or you have a lot of luggage, this may not be the option for you.

2)      Follow the signs in the airport that read “Taxi” (level B1) to the official Taxi Stand. You are suggested to show your admission notice to the driver cause there is our university name and address in Chinese on it (taxi drivers seldom speak English). All taxi fares are calculated and displayed by electronic meter and it will cost about CNY 150 to take a taxi from the airport to BFSU (about 40 km). Remember to take the receipt (fa piao) to verify the bill. Do not accept a ride from strangers, or unmarked “taxis” – only take a taxi at the taxi stand.

c.    Please come and register on the registration date (28 August and 29 August). No registration and visa processing services are available if you arrive early or after.

3.      Accommodation

  1. Due to the limited on-campus dormitory resources, BFSU does not accept dormitory reservations for all new students for the first semester and will try to help in arranging dormitory (bed) upon arrival. From the second semester, students could choose room types (single room or double room) by themselves online. In principle, BFSU does not provide on-campus dormitory for the degree students in their last academic year. Their reservations depend on the dormitory resources available.
  2. Guojiao Building and Building No. 1 are on East Campus; The White Building and No. 6 Building are on West Campus. When checking into your room, CNY 400 needs to be paid in Chinese currency in cash as deposit. You could get the refund while checking out if there is no damages in your room.
  3. If you live at on-campus dormitory, dormitory fee needs to be paid by semester in the full amount on the registration date. 
  4. If you pay the dormitory fee by semester, you would enjoy a discount unit price. If you check out due to the personal reasons in the middle of the semester, dormitory fee would be recalculated as normal daily price (without discount) times the exact number of days you live on campus. Then, you would get the refund of the money left.
  5. If you live off-campus, you have to find the accommodation in advance. You need to go and register at the local police station with your landlord to get the Registration Form of Temporary Residence within 24 hours after moving in. Students living off campus must provide legal residence certificates. Otherwise you are not allowed to register at BFSU and the public security authorities will not conduct any visa procedure.

4.      Visa

Students with an X1 visa should contact the Overseas Students Affairs Office upon arrival in Beijing to conduct the Residence Permit application immediately.

b.      All students holding an X1 visa must have a physical examination done. If you cannot have the examination done before leaving your home country, you may have it done in Beijing.
