Professor Colin Grant is our new Vice-Principal for International, and currently studying Chinese Mandarin at the Confucius Institute.
'I’ve also just resumed my Mandarin learning with lessons at Queen Mary’s Confucius Institute; I think that it’s really important that when I go on overseas trips to China I can say more than just the basics.' [Colin speaks German, French and Portuguese] Read the full interview here
QMUL LANGUAGE SCHOLARSHIP SCHEME
SECOND CALL JULY 2018
In line with QMUL's commitment to offer students a multidisciplinary education, a number of scholarships are available each year to undergraduate students who wish to learn a language in addition to their main programme of study (this scheme will be extended in future years and opened to postgraduate students). Students can apply for a scholarship for one module of language per year, involving one two-hour class per week across both semesters. This module will be non-credit bearing and will not contribute towards your degree result.
Following a successful first round in June, we are delighted to announce a further opportunity to apply for a language scholarship for 2018-19.
The application process for this second round is now live, with a deadline of 16:00 on Monday 13 August 2018.
Confucius Institute Scholarships
- Scholarships awarded on merit demonstrated by passing the HSK test for their level (teacher to define the level) + 400-500 words on how the Chinese course has helped, or will help, them to develop in their academic or professional career
- HSK test preparation will be free for those who achieve 80% attendance by the date of registration for the test
