Once submitted, we will review your application within 2 to 3 days and liaise with the university of your choice.

Should there be a need to submit additional documents, we will contact you.

You also need to pay your application fee.

Every university requires a fee to process your application.

Covered in the payable amount is the postal fee and applying for visa application (JW202 form).

The fee is non-refundable, therefore, it will not be returned the university declines your application. Here are your options to pay for the application fee.

TIP: All documents must be in English or Chinese. If using other languages, secure a notarized translation.

3. Wait for your unique application ID and feedback. 

Once you’ve completed all three steps above, you will receive a unique application ID.

The majority of Chinese universities take around 4 to 6 weeks to review your application. Make sure to check your email during this period as they might contact you directly to ask for more information.

We know waiting can be nerve-racking. China Admissions will follow up on your university application and provide you with regular updates.

Your University Application is Successful – What’s Next?

Once you get accepted by a Chinese university, they will send you the admissions letter electronically. You will also pay the non-refundable deposit to the university.

After a month, you will receive an admissions package that has your admission notice and JW202 form.
