Do you want to study in China for undergraduate, Masters or Doctoral degree? Then the 150,000 Chinese Government Scholarships for Developing Countries 2016 is good for you!

China’s goal to Attract 500,000 foreign students by 2020 is causing the government to offer enormous scholarships to students around the world. At the September UN Sustainable Development Summit, Chinese President Xi Jinping announced that China will provide 150,000 scholarships for citizens of developing countries including Africa. And also help nurture 500,000 professional technicians in these countries with the next 5 years. The essence of the two programmes was to ensure that beneficiaries fast-tracked development of their countries.

China, the third Most Popular Study Destination for International Students

Over the last couple of years China surpassed other leading countries, such as France, Germany, and Australia, to become the third most-popular study destinations for higher education studies, behind UK and US.


In addition, as of July 2013, international students are now permitted to take part-time jobs during their studies, or to pursue paid internships off campus, so long as they have permission both from their host institution and Chinese immigration authorities.

Language of study in China

Some Chinese universities provide international bachelor, master and doctoral programs conducted in English which have no requirements of Chinese language proficiency.
