Entry Requirements

ACASC gives international students a variety of options, ranging from choosing your desirable course to studying in either a university or a college. After these decisions have been made, we assist you along every step of your application.

Every University or college has their own requirements when it comes to admitting students. Its very reasonable that each college will heve their expection, and the kind of qualifications that they require their students to have. This works the same way that every individual student has their own requirements or preference when choosing a university to attend. All international students that want to study in universities in China must meet the requirements and qualifications that are asked for by their prospective universities.

Each program at any Chinese university also hs its own special requirements for students that want to enroll. So we advice that before you apply to ny university or for any program, please consult our representatives at ACASC to be sure of the entry requirements and qualifications before you proceed. It is very important to take note of this, and to be sure you can meet the entry requirements to prevent any disapppointments during the application. Should there be a case when you might not meet a universities requirement, be sure to notify our team at ACASC, so that we figure out other ways to proceed.


The basic University requirements are usually classified under the types of programs. The types of programs that are available at most chinese universities are:


  1. Non-Degree programs/ Chinese Language programs

  2. Bachelor Degree Programs

  3. Masters Degree Programs

  4. Doctorate Degree Programs


Every type of program has a different requirement, and every school might even have different requirements for the same program. Even with this case there are certain requirements that are generalized and that almost all schools ask for. These general entry requirements can be seen across most types of programs. This simply means that for a bchelor degree program, there are certain requirements that will be the same, irrespective of the school.

Also to be  able to enter any Chinese university, you must meet the requirements of both the governments and also the school. Meeting the governments requirements are as important as meeting the requirements of the school. We will give you a brief of some of the requirements that are usually asked of by the school.
