How to get supervisor acceptance letter for my PhD application?
You must contact the professor at the University you are applying. Normally, you can contact them by email to ask him/her to become your PhD Supervisor, write your research interest and attach your CV and research proposal so they get to know you better too. The list of the professors can be found on the University’s website.
What to do after my application has been submitted to China Admissions?
Our admissions staff will review your application and then submit it to the University once everything’s completed. We will follow up regularly with the university and update you (usually by email).
Note: some universities give results on a first come first serve basis while others will process at specific dates, for example, after the closing application date (e.g. June 30th onwards)


What are the required documents?

Here’s the list of documents required https://www.china-admissions.com/blog/required-documents/

In addition, most universities will also ask students to submit the following additional documents:

  • Non-Criminal Record
  • Foreigners Physical Examination Form
I don't have all the required documents now, can I submit them later?

Applying as early as possible is really important. If you don’t have all the documents now, you can often submit your application now and send the remaining documents later.

But, make sure to complete all of the required documents (and pay the application fee) before the application deadline, because Chinese universities don’t consider late applications.
