  • Choosing your courses

“A great leader's courage to fulfill his vision comes from passion, not position”-- John Maxwell. The most important thing about choosing a course is to think about what you really enjoy doing so that reaching your goals will be easily accomplished with great happiness. Passion plays a vital role in choosing a course.

In China, degree courses tend to be specialized, allowing students to focus on their chosen course from day one. Before you choose a course, carefully read the course descriptions and make sure they are in alignment with your dream job.

In China, courses are categorized into family courses and are further divided into sub-courses. International Students have a range of courses to choose from. Students can apply up to five courses in different universities.

Some universities offers Scholarship scheme for some courses.

In China, undergraduate degree courses are offered for 4-5 years depending on the major. Master’s degree courses are offered for 2-3 years and doctorate degree courses are offered for 3-5 years. Non-degree courses take a life span of either a semester i.e. 3-5 months or two semesters i.e. 1 year.

Universities and colleges in China accepts spring/autumn intake.


If students are denied admission for up to 5 courses, we provide this service to place them into other universities with their desired course. With this service, students can’t specify the place they want to study. This service is based solely on the course vacancies available at that moment.

  • Where to Study

Most students’ first search for their desired courses and are directed to the universities and colleges that offer them. Others have a specific city, province or university in which they want to study. Either choice is excellent but some things are considered first i.e.

  1.  Application deadlines and entry requirements of the various courses and universities.

  2.  The fees structure of various courses and universities.

  3.  Students’ financial status.
