Grants by directions

  • Grants for studying the Chinese language.
    About 60% of our students choose this particular direction since knowledge of the Chinese language is required to study at the Chinese University on a grant or on a paid basis. If you are interested in this type of grant, we recommend filling out an application. As a rule, this type of grant is common in second-tier cities. Which is a good opportunity to save money and learn the language well? In this direction of the grant, scholarships are rarely issued.
  • Grants for undergraduate studies in China
    Grants are provided for both Chinese and English languages studying. As a rule, it is easier to learn in English (more details in this article) and less prospective. To apply for a quota, you must have already decided on a major. Otherwise, after receiving the JW 202 form, you will not be able to change it for a whole year.
    Depending on the type of grant for bachelor’s studies there are two scholarships: monthly or every semester.
  • China Medical Grants (MBBS)
    Admission to a medical major grant is extremely rare. More often there are semi-grant places or discounts. Despite this, many students study medicine in China for a fee. Average cost $6,000
