The Scholarships are offered 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 2023 and who wish to pursue a Master’s degree in China or undertake a year of Chinese language study after graduation.

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 Chinese Embassy will post all the application documents and pre-admission notices back to the China Scholarship Council. The final admission notices and visa-application documents are expected to arrive with the Embassy at the beginning of July 2023 and will be posted to you at the earliest time.
