Application Deadline:
Please check the program page for the latest information on the application deadlines. For those programs who do not have an application deadline it is recommended that if students are not already in China, they apply at least one month before the beginning of that semester in order to allow time to process the application and provide students with a study visa.
Applications can be processed after this and once accepted, students should come to China on a temporary tourist visa which can be converted into a study visa here in Beijing.
