China Scholarship Council

Queen Mary University of London has partnered with the China Scholarship Council (CSC) to offer a joint scholarship programme to enable Chinese students to study for a PhD programme at Queen Mary. Under this scheme, Queen Mary will provide scholarships to cover all tuition fees, whilst the CSC will provide living expenses for 4 years and one return flight ticket to successful applicants.

Please see the list of available projects to start in September 2024 under this scheme below.

Applicants must be:

  • Chinese students with a strong academic background.
  • Students holding a PR Chinese passport.
  • Either a resident in China at the time of application or studying overseas. 
  • Students with prior experience of studying overseas (including in the UK) are eligible to apply. Chinese QMUL graduates/Masters’ students are therefore eligible for the scheme.

Please refer to the CSC website for full details on eligibility and conditions on the scholarship.

The deadline for applications to Queen Mary is 31st January 2024. Applicants will need to complete an online application form by this date to be considered. Shortlisted applicants will be invited for a formal interview by the project supervisor. Those who are successful in their application for our PhD programme will be issued with an offer letter which is conditional on securing a CSC scholarship (as well as any academic conditions still required to meet our entry requirements).

Once applicants have obtained their offer letter from Queen Mary they should then apply to CSC for the scholarship by the advertised deadline with the support of the project supervisor.

For September 2024 entry, applicants must complete the CSC application on the CSC website by the advertised deadline.

Only applicants who are successful in their application to CSC can be issued an unconditional offer and enrol on our PhD programme.
