Tianjin Juilliard Pre-College is a non-degree granting program and is intended as a supplement to our students’ full-time, Monday-Friday academic education. We anticipate that most of our students will commute each weekend, from near or far, while staying enrolled in their current weekday school.
Tianjin Juilliard Pre-College will accept Chinese nationals as well as international students. The Pre-College does not grant visas to international students or provide study registration to domestic students since the program is non-degree granting. Those who are planning on relocating in order to attend the Pre-College should arrange their own weekday full-time study and visa if necessary.
Located in the burgeoning district of Binhai, Tianjin, the 450,000 square-foot Tianjin Juilliard campus is designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro, the firm that oversaw the 2009 expansion of Juilliard’s Lincoln Center campus as well as major cultural venues around the globe. The central lobby of the new school is an extension of the surrounding public park and is accessible year-round as a gathering place for students, faculty, and visitors. The cutting-edge architectural design includes the building’s performance halls, teaching studios, practice rooms, and acoustical details that are the first of their kind in China. The campus is a five-minute walk from the Binhai high-speed rail station. By train, downtown Tianjin is a 20-minute ride from the school, with Beijing just one hour away.
