Global Hybrid Classroom (GHC) Certificate Program

This certificate program hope to attract talents from different fields worldwide and co-build a global classroom through an international, diverse and quality learning experience. Through high-quality teaching resources and innovative teaching models, this program will further contribute to global higher education cooperation, fostering a more open, integrative and resilient university.

Introduction of the GHC Certificate Program by Prof. OUYANG Zheng (Vice Provost & Dean of Undergraduate Academic Affairs Office, Tsinghua University)

The Global Hybrid Classroom (GHC) initiative was launched in 2021, to allow university students from around the world, to attend the same class together through hybrid teaching and learning. The initiative provides students more opportunities to learn and to exchange ideas with each other in real-time, while international travel is restricted due to the global pandemic situation.

In 2022, we launch the Global Hybrid Classroom (GHC) Certificate program, further encouraging students from partner universities worldwide to participate and earn certificates upon completion of required modules (3 or 4 GHC courses).

Global Hybrid Courses (GHC) is currently open to current students from overseas partner universities of Tsinghua University, and it’s free. If your university (instructor or students) would like to join the program and experience what it is like to teach and learn in a truly global classroom, please contact the Assistant Secretary-General of the Global MOOC Alliance at [email protected] or [email protected].

How to attend our GHC courses?

  • Tsinghua University will send the list of GHC courses to overseas partner universities every semester. These universities will notify students to enroll and priority will be given to students eager to take part
  • Students from overseas partner universities have to complete the courses required by the GHC Certificate within a specified time. After completing each course, they will receive a GHC transcript issued by Tsinghua University.
  • Students from overseas partner universities attending Tsinghua’s postgraduate courses, whose own universities do not allow for credit transfer, can enjoy credit exemption if they study for postgraduate degrees at Tsinghua University in the future.
