Studying Chinese at University in China

April 08, 2011, 11:23 AM posted in General Discussion

Hi all.

I've been living in China for just under a year now and the experience has been great.  It has really helped me to learn Chinese.  However, in September, I would like to study Chinese at a university preferably in Shanghai or Beijing.  How simple or difficult is it to enrol for a 1-year or 2-year programme?  What about scholarships - do these exist and if so, is the process difficult or easy?

Any help, as always, is greatly appreciated.

This may not fully address your questions, but in case you missed it, there was some discussion along these lines in this lesson recently:

It's very easy - just go along and ask to enrol. (There are also many private language schools - they will, like the universities, look after your visa.) 

There are scholarships, ask around or seach the internet. They may just pay tuition for doing a language course but it all helps. 

Good luck!
