About the University

A key national university under the direct administration of the Ministry of Education (MOE) and technically affiliated to the State Forestry Administration (SFA), Beijing Forestry University (BFU) is consecutively listed among China’s prestigious universities that are entitled with the Innovation Platform for Prioritized Academic Disciplines and the Higher Education Reinvigoration Project 211. 


The history of BFU can be dated back to 1902. In 1952, an independent Beijing Forestry College (BFC) was set up, which was one of the earliest higher education institutes in the country that specialized in forest studies. Thanks to the unrelenting efforts of all the faculty and students over the past six decades, BFU has developed itself from a specialized college in forestry to its current status as a multi-disciplinary university with leading positions among its counterparts in such disciplines as forestry, soil and water conservation, desertification control and prevention, landscape architecture, biology, and forest engineering, together with an extensive coverage of disciplines in agriculture, science and technology, economics and management, liberal arts, fine arts, law, and philosophy.


Currently, BFU is arranged into 15 schools and colleges of studies, a Graduate School, a School of Continuing Education and a School of International Studies, offering 57 undergraduate programs, 116 master’s programs, 39 PhD schemes and 5 post-doctoral research stations.


BFU is now endeavoring to bring into reality the university’s vision: developing it into an internationally-recognized, competitive, research-oriented university with distinctive academic features.
