This year Queen Mary University of London is offering at least three full scholarships in association with the China Scholarship Council to students interested in studying at one of our prestigious partner institutions in China in 2020/21.
The Scholarships have been allocated to Queen Mary University of London by the Chinese Government and will cover the entire duration of study in China. The opportunity could suit in particular students who graduate in July 2020 and who wish to pursue a Master’s degree in China or undertake a year of Chinese language study after graduation. Please note that this scholarship is only available to Queen Mary students graduating in July 2020.
To be eligible, applicants must be:
The following courses of study are available through the scholarship:
Scholarships include registration, tuition fees, medical insurance and accommodation, but students will be required to cover their own travel costs.
Queen Mary’s partner universities are all prestigious institutions located in a wide range of cities and regions, including Beijing, Chengdu, Changsha, Xi’an, Nanchang, Shanghai, Xiamen and Zhejiang.
Please note that candidates will require two academic references from Queen Mary. These references will be reviewed by the Embassy as part of the application, students will then also be required to submit their references to their Chinese university choices independently; your Queen Mary academic referees should be aware of this and be willing to provide references which fulfil both purposes.
The deadline for submitting an online application is 14th of April at 4pm. This deadline is final and cannot be appealed. For your application, you will need:
Please submit the following documents if applicable:
Once you submit your application online to the embassy (as well as sending a copy to the Global Opportunities Office) Queen Mary will undertake a review process to support your application and nominate you for the scholarship.
Students must make their application online using the Chinese Government Scholarship Application Portal
We will inform you of Queen Mary's decision to nominate you for the scholarship shortly after the closing date. Please note that this will not guarantee that you will be awarded the scholarship. This is only a nomination by Queen Mary, and it is the Chinese Embassy who have the final decision.
Please keep all original documentation as these will be required should you be successful. All communications should be sent to email@example.com
The Chinese Embassy will organise experts to make the preliminary review of your application and issue the scholarship certificates (scanned) to the successful nominees in or around April 2020. The rest of the nominees will be placed on a waiting list. Once you accept your scholarship, you will not be able to change your host university. The Chinese Embassy will post all the application documents and pre-admission notices back to the China Scholarship Council. The final admission notice and visa-application documents are expected to arrive with the Embassy at the beginning of July and will be posted to you at the earliest time.
The Chinese Embassy will hold a briefing and reception for scholarship winners in July 2020. The admission packages will be posted to the winners if they cannot attend the reception.
Students will be required to pick and contact their three preferred Chinese universities, before emailing back their pre-admission notices to Queen Mary. We can recommend the following QMUL partner institutions, which are ranked amongst the most prestigious in China:
