The application process for Easter 2014 is now closed but you can register your interest for the Summer 2014 using the contact form linked on the right.
The application process for the summer 2014 programme will open in April.
Important Information about application submission dates:
When the application process opens, you will be required to fill out an online application form.
Please read the eligibility criteria prior to submitting an application
After submitting your application you will receive an automated email confirming we have received your application. If you do not receive this email please firstly check your junk mail folder.
If you cannot locate the automated response email you must email firstname.lastname@example.org
If an automated email has not been sent to you this is because you have incorrectly entered your university email address on your application form, the Study China office must be notified immediately in order to rectify and ensure you receive all further related correspondence.
You will be notified within approximately 15 working days of your application status which will be one of the following:
Conditional offer of a place on the programme
Offer of a reserve place on the programme
Offer of a place on the programme
If offered a place on the programme this will be conditional, subject to meeting eligibility criteria.
You will be asked to indicate which host university you would like to attend. Where possible we will try to accommodate your preference but we cannot guarantee that you will be allocated your first choice.
In the interest of fairness to all students, university preference will be processed on a first come, first served basis. Therefore students submitting an early application will increase their chances of being allocated their first choice of university selection.
All communication will be sent to your student email address provided on your application form.
If offered a place on the reserve list this will be conditional, subject to meeting eligibility criteria. For every programme we maintain a reserve list. In the event that a student drops out we will offer the available place to a student on the reserve list. Reserve applicants will have met all essential Key Skills and Key Qualities on their application; however, their application will have received a slightly lower score than an applicant who has been offered a place.
You will not be able to state a university preference as you will be filling the place of a student who has already made their university preference.You will not be eligible to apply for the Study China bursary, however you can still approach your home institution for funding opportunities.
If your application is declined you are invited to apply again for a future programme. Due to the high volume of applications received we are unable to provide any feedback regarding your application. We recommend that unsuccessful applicants seek advice on how to improve their application from their university careers department.
