Recipients can apply for preparatory course exemption if they

12. Which Chinese universities offer Chinese Government Scholarship programs?

A total of 252 Chinese universities are designated by MOE to accept Chinese Government Scholarship students. Applicants can only choose their host universities from this list. Please check the Directory of the Chinese Institutions Admitting International Students under Chinese Government Scholarship Program on www.csc.edu.cn/laihua or www.campuschina.org for introduction to programs and universities available.  

 

13. Can applicants directly apply to Chinese universities for Chinese Government Scholarship?

Only Chinese universities undertaking Chinese University Program can accept the scholarship application directly. A List of Designated Chinese Universities Undertaking This Program can be found at the end of APPLICATION DETAILS of Chinese Government Scholarship—Chinese University Program.  

 

14. Can applicants apply for more than one program?

Yes. However, CSC reserves the right to award only one scholarship to each individual applicant nominated by more than one university.  

 

15. How can I know the admission result?

The admission result will be announced by the application receiving agencies in late July. Applicants can consult the application receiving agencies for admission result.

 

16. Why is the host university sometimes not the target university?

For the applicants without Admission Letter, CSC reserves the right to make necessary adjustments on the university options, specialties, program categories and duration of study based on the scholarship requirement of different countries, accepting capacity of universities, requirements of different programs and the qualification of applicants. That’s why some applicants are enrolled by a university beyond their application options.

 

17. How can I go to my host university that is not in Beijing?

CSC provides transfer service to new full scholarship students who have to make a stopover in Beijing to other cities during August 25th and September 15th. Pickup service at Beijing Airport, free accommodation on campus and hard-seat train ticket (or hard-berth train ticket for overnight trip) from Beijing to the city of the host institution will be provided to full scholarship students.
