phd requirements in china universities

The completion of a Ph.D. is often a requirement for employment as a university professor, researcher, or scientist in many fields. A clear distinction is made between an earned doctorate, which is awarded for completion of a course of study and a thesis or dissertation, and an honorary doctorate, a title granted by a university to a successful or notable person who has not completed doctoral academic work or completed a dissertation at the university.Being admitted into a PhD course in China is not easy due to the high admission requirements. The following is what one requires to be adimtted into a PhD program:

1.       Must be a Non-Chinese citizen in good health.

2.       Must be 18 years or older.

3.       The pospective student must be the holder of a valid passport.

4.       The Student must be a Maters degree graduate or equivalent.

5.       Needs to present minimum 2 letters of recommendation from Professors

6.       In normal circumstances the applicant would need to have HSK level 5-8 certificate or higher. An alternative would be for the student to pass the university's entrance exam. However applicants who do not meet the Chinese language requirement can successfully complete one year full-time pre-sessional Chinese language program.

7.       For PhD programs conducted in Engish, Students will need to submit recognised language profriciency scores such as TOEFL or IELTS.
