The Open University of China (Chinese: 中央广播电视大学; pinyin: Zhōngyāng guăngbò diànshì dàxué) was established in Beijing in 1979. Its old name was China Central Radio and TV University (this is still the Chinese name), which reflects its heritage of providing a system of higher education through radio and television. The university is directly under the supervision of the Ministry of Education. The current president is Dr. Ge Daokai, Sun Lüyi, Li Linshu and Yan Bing are vice presidents, and Zhang Hui is party secretary of the university.[3]

Currently, most courses are blended between face-to-face sessions and online/distance learning. It operates through 44 provincial radio and television universities (PTVUs), 279 prefectural/civic branch schools and 625 district/county work stations.

The RTVU system employs nearly 85,000 staff (including 52,600 full-time staff).[4] It offers 75 majors in 9 disciplines and 24 specialties including science, engineering, agricultural science, medicine, literature, law, economics, management, and education.
