Admission Requirements of Chinese Universities

In accordance with different levels of degree, Chinese universities have different requirements for all enrollees. Before applying, you must carefully review these requirements.

  Usually, the non-degree language and culture programs have minimum requirements; as long as you have obtained a high school diploma, you can apply for   admission.

  Chinese-medium degree programs (i.e. degree programs taught in Mandarin Chinese) require the applicant to provide HSK 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 programs do not require HSK results. Instead, applicants for English-medium programs 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).

  More and more universities are starting to offer international programs taught in English. These programs will no longer require HSK examination results  and are suitable

 for international applicants.

 The following is a list of requirements for different programs:
