Universities in China come in all shapes and sizes: from the famous and prestigious like Tsinghua or Peking in Beijing, that have huge international student/teacher populations, to the more rural vocational universities in the provincial cities, where you could be the only non-Chinese person your students have ever seen.
Generally, when compared to the West, Chinese universities are more communal: students live in 4-8 -bed dormitories and have shared regular meal times in the campus canteens. Class times and assessments are also standardised, so students all take a similar number of classes, regardless of major, and will all have a final exam.
In addition to this, the students’ free time is also regulated. They are required to complete a set amount of extra-curricular activities every semester: these can include swimming, Chinese classes and volunteering. Overall, the environment in a Chinese University is unlike what we have in the West and is somewhere between our experience of university and high school. Prospective teachers should keep this in mind.
