Scholarship to study at a Chinese university

Chinese Government Scholarships

The scholarships cover tuition fees, university dormitory or accommodation subsidy, a monthly stipend, and medical insurance.

In order to promote the mutual understanding, co-operation, and exchanges in politics, economy, culture, education, and trade between the People’s Republic of China and the United Kingdom, the Chinese Government is offering the Chinese Government Scholarship to non-Chinese citizens.

The Chinese Government Scholarship is administered by the China Scholarship Council in association with the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in the UK.

The Scholarship provides an opportunity for both undergraduate and postgraduate students to spend the 2018-19 academic year studying at a Chinese higher education institution.

Step Two

The applications will be assessed by a University of Kent panel to decide which applicants the University will nominate to be considered for the Scholarship.

The applicants who have been nominated will be notified by the University and will then make their application for the Chinese Government Scholarship. Full information on how to make this application will be provided at this stage.

Please note that a nomination does not guarantee that the applicant will be awarded the scholarship – this decision is made by the China Scholarship Council.

The China Scholarship Council will inform successful applicants by the end of March 2018.
