Frequently Asked Questions

faq - China Schooling

Can China’s universities provide programs taught in English?
Yes. There are bachelors, master and doctorate programs taught in English at China’s universities. And they are mainly MBBS, business programs, engineering programs and computer science and technology.

Do I need to have English proficiency certificate IELTS or TOFEL to get admission?
No, the English proficiency certificate (such as IELTS or TOEFL) isn’t mandatory for all the universities.

Can I apply for the university directly?
Yes, you can directly apply to the university but we advise you – not to apply directly to the university. To apply directly to universities, you have to handle everything by yourself, what is not so easy. We have a professional team to help you and process everything professionally for you. When applying directly to an overseas university, the process can be complicated and confusing, not to mention the time-zone, language difference and processing complication.

How many universities recruit foreign students in China?
There are nearly 1000 universities in China can recruit international students but around 300 universities are internationally recognized. Therefore, it will be difficult for you to search right school and right program.

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.

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 few other reasons –
1. The agency charges you high service fee
2. It might recommend bad-quality school to you
3. It cannot provide 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 6 universities organize students to take entrance exams for bachelor programs. They 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 graduate, which equals to the accomplishment of 12 years’ study. O-LEVEL or IGCSE does not meet this requirement, thus students with this two results are not qualified for China’s bachelor programs.

Many of them sold out their properties to pay the service charge of agents, where as to get admission in China’s university won’t cost them not more than 250 USD (including application fee and parcel fee). To stop this unethical process and assisting students we started our journey.

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