How do I pick a good university and course to learn Mandarin in China?

I'm thinking of going to China to learn Mandarin Chinese - not through an overseas university, but directly arranged with a chinese uni (eg beijing language and culture university). There are many, many places offering courses of various different types - how do I pick a good one? Ideally I'm looking for feedback from people who have attended courses.
further info: I'm thinking of doing a single semester or a single years' course, have been taking a class 4 hours/week for a few months so have the basics. I'd like to avoid polluted megacities if at all possible. If all goes well I'd be aiming to land a job in the environment field in China afterwards.
