2021 Intake: When Can International Students Go To China?

Everyday life in China is back to normal, but borders are still closed so universities can’t provide an estimated time for when international students are able to enter China. As soon as an official announcement is released, we will immediately inform students.

Although there’s no certainty when international students can come back, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced at the end of September that foreigners who have a valid residence permit under these three following purposes, work, personal affairs, and family reunion, can enter China again. This is a positive sign that entry policies are moving forward.

As for the 2021 intake, admissions are going ahead as normal. You can start your application here or learn more about the admissions process here.

I already enrolled in a Chinese University for 2021-2022 intake. My regular classes will likely to start from September 2021. Can I hope to enter into China before September 2021?

When universities in China start classes online they are usually in time manner or they are pre recorded classes? As China and USA time difference it might be hard to study online

China should be open border for international students. New students are quarantined for 14 days first, after that they are vaccinated for those who haven’t, or if they are already vaccinated, carry a vaccine certificate. Find a way please.

All countries (except China) have resumed international students’ return. They don’t care about international students. How are medical students going to practise surgeries? That’s why I selected UK

We advise you to wait until students are able to come back. If you do have Chinese family in China you might be able to come on a family visa.
