10 facts for those who want to go to study in China on a scholarship in September.

10 facts for those who want to go to study in China on a scholarship in September.
Our 10 facts have lost much of their informativeness, because the official website of the China Scholarship Council was substantially reworked.
http://www.csc.edu.cn/laihua/upload/file/20151209/20151209135336_7686.pdf – file describing the scholarship, the procedure for filing, registration and so on. in RUSSIAN (.) language from the official website of the scholarship. Read before asking questions, most of your questions will be solved in the “automatic” mode.
I ask all applicants to pay attention to the new scholarship: 2016 MOFCOM Scholarship (http://www.csc.edu.cn/laihua/scholarshipdetailen.aspx?cid=97&id=4849)
Deadline “on the nose, of course, but this is the same scholarship, the documents for which are sent directly to the embassy (not for exchange).
Previously, it did not exist.
It is very likely that this scholarship will become an annual one, so check before submitting (for many, this path may be the simplest one).
http://www.csc.edu.cn/Laihua/newsdetailen.aspx?cid=66&id=3074 -one of the main blocks (what to send, where, who, what, if there is no certificate of the Chinese language, how many years of the Chinese language will be given , how to make a visa, who should meet, where to live, and so on).
In other blocks of questions (the previous link), too, fail, you will not regret.
http://www.csc.edu.cn/Laihua/scholarshipen.aspx – root (here you can click on the type of scholarship you are interested in and get information about it). The first link leads here:
http://www.csc.edu.cn/Laihua/scholarshipdetailen.aspx?cid=97&id=2070 – introduction and basic information about scholarships (types, how and where to submit documents, to whom and why they are given)
http://www.csc.edu.cn/Laihua/scholarshipdetailen.aspx?cid=97&id=3056 – submission directly to universities. This is the same CSC program, that is, a government (and not local) scholarship, but: 1) universities accept documents directly and 2) this is not an exchange program.
The only “but”: the university will not send your documents to another university, so if it does not take you, your list of three universities will close at the first step.
Attention! This type of scholarship is not suitable for bachelors!
http://www.csc.edu.cn/laihua/upload/file/20140307/20140307101305_3905.pdf – a list of institutions that accept documents directly. The list is clickable, that is, you can “fail” in any of the represented institutions by clicking the mouse. On the opened page there will be links to the site of the university, living conditions, available programs on the levels (magistracy, doctoral studies, etc.).
Are there any other options? Yes, of course: http://www.csc.edu.cn/Laihua/scholarshiplisten.aspx?cid=106 – a list of university scholarships (these are local scholarships, they have their own conditions and their own fees. Read carefully!) Part of the program is suitable for bachelors, you need to check this fact in the description of the scholarship.
It is worth noting that some local scholarships offer significantly more “reward” than government scholarships, sometimes you can see even the options in the spirit of “one thousand yuan on top of monthly if you come with the family.”
Yes, the stipulated amount of the scholarship regularly lags behind the real.
http://www.csc.edu.cn/laihua/scholarshipdetail.aspx?cid=93&id=2058 – a reference in Chinese with current basic scholarships (as of January 2015). amount “on hand”:
Bachelor – 2.500 yuan per month.
The master is 3,000 yuan a month.
Postgraduate / doctoral student – 3.500 yuan per month.
The trainees in English +5000 yuan annually.
The amounts allocated for the coverage of education and accommodation are available at this link.
The message will be updated as new information appears.
Hello! Our family has been living in China since September 2013. We keep this diary for those,
who wants to go to study in China and those who are just interested in reading about our world 🙂
So, if you want to go to study in China on a scholarship.
The information below is more relevant for those who have already graduated in Russia: training for a bachelor, a specialist or a master and who are not yet 35-40. Knowledge of Chinese is not necessary, chances to find & quot; its & quot; Practically everyone has a university.
When choosing a scholarship and submitting documents, all candidates inevitably face a huge number of unsolvable issues. If we could find all this information in one place, we would be able to spend a huge amount of time on something more useful 🙂 The submission of documents usually goes from January to May (depending on the university), in deadline universities it is necessary that they already received the kit. Peking University holds admission exams in the fall, they have a separate procedure. Many universities require paying a fee for reviewing the kit.
As a result of all our efforts, we achieved the following results:
– approval of the Master’s program for a full government scholarship in Sichuan University (1 year of language + 3 years of study in Chinese)
– an invitation for an interview in Tsinghua.
– the rejection of Shanghai Jiaotong University and Wuhan University because of the absence of a professor in this field.
– approval for a partial scholarship to study the language in Ningxia Hui University (1 year)
– the lack of response to the sent kit from the Beijing and Fudan universities.
– the refusal from the Moscow institute to accept documents because of the lack of confirmed HSK-3 and the passed year of teaching the Chinese language in the inter-university instead of the IC.
– three taken by turns, and then lost kit by the Chinese Embassy.
– approval for a full scholarship phd CAS TWAS (3 years in English)
Chose the latter. We did not pay a fee for reviewing documents for one set, because the goal was “fan feed”. Maybe, someone will benefit from our experience. So, a set of facts on the filing of documents for scholarships in China.
1. General information about scholarships in China. For example, here: http://www.portalchina.ru/grants.ht ml.
Our scholarship program CAS TWAS was launched this year for the first time, it is necessary to search for information separately.
Unlike government, for her the amount of the scholarship is 7000-8000 yuan.
To apply for a government scholarship, you must fill out a form on the laihua website (here you need to register http://laihua.csc.edu.cn/inscholars hip / jsp / student / StudentLogin.jsp about the program here: http://en.csc .edu.cn /)
2. List of Chinese universities that, in principle, can accept a government scholarship with contact e-mail (!):
4. Better do about 10 sets of documents at once, so that the chances of getting through are higher. For consideration by universities we did not need: medical certificate, notarized copy of the diploma (approached certified by the university).
Recommendations of professors, too, ask for 10 copies.
5. Send documents by registered mail through GlavPochtamp, this will help you to gain time (2 weeks in Moscow) and money (much cheaper than EMS and DHL), reached Beijing in 2 weeks, all information about the way of letters will be available on the mail site of Russia.
6. Try to send kits to those universities, from which you received an electronic response. It is best (if you can) to find a Chinese professor, to convince him to take you and keep in constant touch (we did not do so). Look at the forums, when the candidates of these universities of past years learned about the admission. The difference is in months of nervous expectation and silence (for example, here http://polusharie.com/index.php?topic=3 816.0 and here http://vk.com/topic-98554_20372843 and then http: //www.chinese -forums.com/index.p hp? / topic / 40927-csc-scholarship-results-2 013 /)
7. Unofficially announced information (embassy, minobrom, fact-in-law of Moscow State University):
Through the Ministry of the Interior and the Russian embassy, it is only the present students who have a reason to serve; the minibra of the quota is determined by exchange places, that is, If your faculty is ready to accept a Chinese for training, then only in this case the ministry or embassy will accept the documents. This also explains the reluctance of most Chinese universities to consider graduate candidates from Russia (especially top Chinese universities, they do not get a place for exchange, so it is more profitable for them to take someone for a fee), China has only two agreements with the Russian Federation – with the ministry and the Moscow State University, both under exchange conditions. Submit documents to the embassy directly useless. They took from us and lost three sets, initially refused to refuse at all.
8. It’s almost pointless to send to TOP universities (although nobody tries to try), they require an application fee for the examination of the kit. Peking University takes only the results of the exam, which takes place in November (can be seen in detail on their website), Tsinghua invites for an interview “in one to three days”, and if it is impossible to come, refuses to accept, etc.
9. The presence of a professor in a Chinese university, ready to be your supervisor, sharply (at times) increases the chances of receiving a scholarship in it. At the same time, the probability of failure due to incomplete set of documents or any other formalities is also drastically reduced.
10. When submitting documents through the embassy (that is, through the Ministry of Education or the Moscow State University), the Chinese side considers not only the universities you indicated (you can specify three), but also any others on the chosen profile (that is, you can get to the first university in your you can go to another city). When you apply directly to the university, the kit is not sent anywhere. Either this particular university will take you, or you will not go anywhere with this kit 🙂
Here, like, and all the basic information. If you have any questions, I will be happy to respond.
An important update (CAS-TWAS, for other programs, most likely, is also fair): quotas are distributed by country. That is, at the moment from Russia to get to the CAS-TWAS program is much easier than, for example, from Pakistan. In 2014, more than 1,500 applications were submitted for 140 seats in total, so the advantage of the “local competition” can be decisive.
