International students from all over the world who wish to study in China need to meet certain requirements by both the Chinese government and the respective university.
Applicants must be real students and should have supporting documents to prove that they have been admitted into a university.
Students must possess a student visa that must be verified within 30 days so that they may receive a residence permit.
Students should not have a criminal record. Students from selected countries need to provide a non-criminal certificate notarized and certified by the Chinese embassy.
The student should possess all the qualifications and meet all the academic and financial requirements set out by the university of choice.
If one is a transfer student he/she will need to provide a transfer certificate between the two schools.
Different courses require different qualifications. One should be mindful of the type of course he/she will be studying in China and make sure that their qualifications meet the minimum requirement.
Chinese-medium degree courses (i.e. degree courses taught in Mandarin Chinese) require the applicant to provide HSK examination results to prove their Chinese language proficiency. Applicants for master's degrees also need to provide a copy of transcripts and recommendation letters.
English-medium courses do not require HSK exam results. Instead, applicants for English-medium courses should provide recognized English proficiency tests such as TOEFL or IELTS. (English native speakers or those who hold an academic degree taught in English need not provide test scores).
Usually, non-degree language and culture programs have minimum requirements; as long as you have obtained a high school diploma, you can apply for admission.
