The School of Continuing Education (Training School of Winter Olympic Sports) is a secondary college of Beijing Sport University (BSU). BSU offered the non-formal continuing education at the time of its establishment in 1953, and then the formal continuing education in 1981.

In 2017, the Training School of Winter Olympic Sports was established, which was co-located with the School of Continuing Education. Now the School of Continuing Education offers formal and non-formal continuing education.

The formal continuing education is completed in the form of part-time (correspondence) education, and divided into three levels, i.e., education of junior college from high school, undergraduate education from high school, and undergraduate education from education of junior college. At present, with more than 3,000 students enrolled, the School of Continuing Education has set up many majors such as Sports Training, Human Sport Science, Physical Education, Sports Rehabilitation, and Sports Management, and successively established nearly 60 correspondence centers in more than 40 cities in 20 provinces nationwide and one overseas correspondence center in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.

The School of Continuing Education also sets up a professional model of “sports training +” to promote the connotative development of continuing education by connecting the curriculum systems of both formal and non-formal continuing education and introducing the concepts of “credit bank”, “curriculum supermarket” and “certificate program”.
