BEIJING: A university in China has defied traditional Chinese conservatism by offering students a course on dating, the media reported on Tuesday.

The Tianjin University course, with 32 class hours and two credits, is offered by a student community, "Queqiaohui", which specialises in making friends and dating, the China Daily reported. 

It teaches theory and practical skills, including social etiquette training and a dating salon.

"If the course attendees applied what they learned to real dating by finding a boyfriend or girlfriend and forming a good relationship, it is possible they can get full marks in the course," said Cong Ying, director of Queqiaohui.
