The People's Police University of China (PPUC), merged with PPSUC in 1998, was first established as Institute of International Politics in 1978. The IIP, along with China Foreign Affairs University, Institute for International Relations were all universities directly affiliated with certain ministries in the government and made them as the "Group 0" choice for Gaokao, which means they enroll students earlier than all the "Group 1" universities like Beijing University and Tsinghua University and were very competitive, aiming to strengthen the future talent pool for the government to choose after students' graduation.
The IIP was at the beginning intelligence related and could be thought of a FBI school at its days. However, in 1982, as the government portfolio were changed, the IIP no longer served as an intelligence school and therefore renamed into Chinese People's Police University, ranking no.1 among all the police academy (excelled PPSUC). In fact, not all the graduates of the school got automatically enrolled in the intelligence-related agencies after graduation.
