My Sons/Daughter isn’t 18 years old yet, Can He/She study in China?
Yes, students who are under 18 years old can study in China, but only non-degree programs. To study the non-degree program they have to provide a guardian letter and a guardian’s ID/passport. The Guardian has to be a Chinese citizen or a foreigner with a work visa in China.
For degree programs, students have to be 18 years old or above.
Do I need visa to study in China?
Foreign students studying in China are required to hold an ordinary passport and either an X1 visa (study period of more than 180 days) or an X2 visa (study period of no more than 180 days.). Applicants should apply for a Chinese visa from their nearest Chinese Embassy or Consulate.
What is JW201 & JW202 form?
According to Chinese laws, foreign students studying in China should have a student’s visa for entrance. With the school admission notice, the required document of visa application for study in China(Form JW201or JW202), students apply for the student’s visa in the Chinese embassy or consulate in their own countries. After the new regulations which take effect on September 1, 2013, students who plan to study in China for over 6 months will be issued an X-1 visa, and those for less than or equal to 6 months will be issued an X-2 visa. The Chinese embassy or consulate has full authority to make the decision if the applicant should be issued a visa or not.
JW201 / JW202 is a form generated by a Chinese university upon admission acceptance. Once you’re accepted, your Chinese university will send you “Visa Application for Study in China(JW202 Form)”. JW201 is for those studying in China on a full scholarship or partial scholarship while JW202 is for those studying in China by self-supporting or partial scholarship. The Chinese authorized unit is the one who decides which one to issue. Not only they are used for the application of the student visa (X-Visa), but also for the renewal and extension of the student visa after the student registers in the university.
Students should keep the original copies of both documents and bring them to China. The photocopy of these documents is not qualified for the visa affairs. Since the student’s visa has a period of validity, students should arrange the trip reasonably and register at the university on time. Arriving in China too early may result in a visa expires before the indicated registration time. Late arrival always disturbs the arrangement of the study schedule.
What are the foods cost in China?
China is a super big country with lot of small and big cities. Expenses depend based on the city but it’s approximate $50-$600 vary on the person the ways he/she does act.
Why we suggest not applying university directly?
The procedure is quite complicated. Most universities do not provide online application and it’s difficult to complete application in right way. You need to download the application form, transfer application fee from the bank, and deliver application documents. And you won’t be able to track your application status.
School teachers cannot provide high-quality and timely service. University admission committee is processing thousands of applications every year. So attempting to get response towards your questions about entry requirements, program details and your application status could take a while. Many students complain that nobody replies their email, no one answers their calls or even some teachers cannot communicate with English.
Admission package (admission letter , JW202) might get lost during delivery. Normally, the university mail students’ admission package by air mail. It’s slow and easy to get lost. If this happens, you will miss the chance for studying in China.
How Much Can This Scholarship Save for You?
Full Scholarship could even save you tuition fee, accommodation and monthly allowance which is up to $30,000-$40,000 in total. A partial scholarship could even save you tuition fees and accommodation or only tuition fees, which is up to $10,000-$20,000.
Why students need to pay deposit?
Because of the low service fee, many students provide us their documents but after having admission successfully, few of them deny to come. If you deny accepting then your deposit won’t be refundable. To stop this kind of incident we asked for the deposit from students. If you don’t pay the deposit then we won’t process your documents.
If I failed to get the scholarship then application fee refundable?
No, because the application process for this scholarship is complicated and hard to deal with. We need a very long time to help you apply it. As a result, it is not refundable.
Can I apply through any local agency?
Yes, you can apply but there is no such difference to apply directly by yourself or apply through a local agency. We advise you not to apply for China’s universities through a local agency. There are also a few other reasons – 1. The agency charges you high service fee 2. It might recommend the not desirable school to you 3. It cannot provide the necessary help when you encounter problems in China.
Is there an entrance examination for bachelor programs in China’s universities?
There is no entrance exam for most universities. Currently, there are some universities that organize students to take entrance exams for bachelor programs. There are Peking University, Tsinghua University, Renmin University of China, University of International Business and Economics, Fudan University and Shanghai Jiao Tong University.
Can students with O-LEVEL or IGCSE apply for Bachelor programs in China?
Normally, the basic requirement for China’s bachelor programs is high school graduates, which equals the accomplishment of 12 years’ study. O LEVEL or IGCSE does not meet this requirement, thus students with these two results are not qualified for China’s bachelor programs.
When should I apply + What’s the application deadline?
Applicants should apply for their chosen program at least three months before the starting date, which means you have to apply before July. It is important to check the deadline for your chosen course(s). If you want to apply for a scholarship then you have to apply from January to April.

How long does it cost for the university to deal with my application?
Processing time for Chinese language applications is less than a degree program application. Normally, you can get the admission decision in 2 to 4 weeks for the Chinese language application. But the universities deal with degree programs application at a certain time. Usually, applications for the fall semester will be processed after February, and the processing time is from 1 to 2 months. This also depends on your qualifications and the number of applicants.
