Are scholarship recipients obliged to take Chinese-taught programs?


Updated: 2018-03-15

1. Chinese is the only instruction language for undergraduate programs. Scholarship recipients of undergraduate programs must take preparatory courses in designated universities for one year and pass the required test before major studies. Failure to pass the required test leads to the automatic termination of their scholarship.

2. Most graduate programs and non-degree programs are instructed in Chinese. Certain Chinese universities offer English-taught programs. Please check Directory of the Chinese Institutions Admitting International Students under Chinese Government Scholarship Program ( or for program introduction. Scholarship recipients of Chinese-taught programs without adequate Chinese language proficiency must take Chinese language training courses for one to two years to reach the language requirements of their host universities before major studies. Failure to reach the required language proficiency will lead to the termination of scholarship. Recipients in such programs as science, engineering, agriculture, west medicine, economics, management, law and arts will take Chinese courses for one year. Recipients in literature, history, philosophy and Chinese medicine will take Chinese courses for no more than two years. Recipients of English-taught programs or those with adequate Chinese language capability do not need to take Chinese language training courses.
