Tianjin Foreign Studies University (Chinese: 天津外国语大学, Pinyin: Tiānjīn wàiguóyǔ dàxué), nickname as "天外", is one of the top eight foreign studies universities in China.

As a renowned teaching and research institution, Tianjin Foreign Studies University specializes in foreign language and culture studies. Language concentrations include English, Japanese, German, French, Russian, Korean, Spanish, Portuguese, Swahili and Arabic. In particular, the university's English translation and interpretation and Japanese programs are among the top of its kind in the nation. The institution also offers programs in Chinese language and culture for foreign exchange students from other countries.

The university is located at 117 Machang Road (马场道 Mǎchǎngdào), on the north of Hexi District (河西区 Héxīqū), bordering Heping District (和平区 Hépíngqū). The area, being a famous historic tourist site in China, is one of the few places in China that have well preserved the European architecture from the 18th Century.
