We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
As China takes a central place on the world stage, its higher education system is also moving into the global spotlight. Substantial government investment means there are now over 2,000 universities in the country and increasing numbers of postgraduates look to study a Masters abroad in China.
Gone are the days when 'made in China' implied indifferent mass production. Now the country is at the forefront of major scientific and engineering developments, with its universities seeking to transmit this new knowledge and fuel the next wave of innovation.
International students are set to play a big part in this process. More and more Chinese universities are adopting an easily recognisable three-cycle degree system and offering increasing numbers of degree programmes in English.
All of this means that now is a great time to consider studying a Masters programme in China: making the most of unique research and training opportunities whilst enjoying an exciting study abroad experience in a huge and culturally diverse country.
China is rapidly becoming a major study abroad destination, with over 95,000 international students at its universities.
Chinese Masters degrees usually last for two years. Some research-focussed programmes may be longer. The Chinese academic year runs from September to July.
Tuition fees for Chinese Masters degrees vary, but are competitive when compared with other popular international study destinations. The average cost of a Chinese Masters programme is between 20,000 RMB and 60,000 RMB (roughly $3,300 to $9,900) per year. You may also have to pay a small application fee in addition to this.
The main language of study in China is Mandarin. However, Chinese universities are increasingly offering English-language programmes in a bid to attract more international students.
Yes, international students require a visa to study in China. In order to complete a Masters degree you will need to apply for a full study visa (shorter business or tourist visas will not be sufficient). You should be able to receive specific advice from a Chinese embassy in your home country or your prospective Chinese university.
