What is the admission requirement for a PhD program?

These are the general admission requirements for PhD students.

  • Non-Chinse citizen in good health.

  • 18 years old or above.

  • Hold a valid foreign passport.

  • Master's degree graduate or the equivalent.

  • At least two recommendation letters from professors.

  • Under normal circumstances, applicants are required to have HSK level 5-8 certificate or above; or pass the university's entrance examination. Applicants who do not meet the Chinese language requirement are usually admitted if they successfully complete a one-year full-time Chinese language program as a pre-sessional course.

NB: For those programs taught in English, applicants should submit recognized English proficiency tests scores such as TOEFL or IELTS. (English native speakers or those holding an academic degree taught in English need not provide test scores.)
