Tongji University is among the universities in China directly managed by the Ministry of Education. The university thus receives funding from state funding programs. This is evident in the university's facilities. Tonji University was founded in 1907 by a German doctor and has continued to expand its collaboration with German universities since then.

The academic year at Tongji University begins in September. Tongji University offers a Summer School in August for students from partner universities. The summer school serves as preparation for a following stay. Chinese is the main language of instruction. However, a number of courses are offered in German in those subject areas involved in the Chinese German College for Postgraduate Studies. Basic Chinese skills are recommended.
