Is admission guaranteed if I provide these documents?
Completing the required documents is a part of the application process, as universities won’t consider incomplete application documents.
But please note that completing the application documents doesn’t guarantee admissions, as the University will need to review your application and make the final decision.
Is there any additional documents required?
Additional documents might be needed if you specifically asked to provide further documents. In some cases, universities require additional documents after the application has been submitted. This usually has one of the two reasons:
– The university has unique document requirements
– The university wants to better understand and evaluate your background
If the university has unique document requirements, we will inform you about it.
However, in some cases, the university asks for other additional documents to better evaluate your background or it might be needed in order to make sure that all documents are ready to prepare a visa later on.
Example of common additional documents: Non-criminal record, CV, Parents’ passport, recommendation letter from teacher

Chinese universities require students to submit 2 recommendation letters for students applying for Master’s and PhD programs, and they prefer these letters to be from the Professor or Associate Professor at your previous university.

What is a Guarantor Statement or Financial Statement?
A guarantor is a person who will help you in case of financial or medical emergency. The guarantor statement is mostly signed by a close relative of yours. You have to submit it because the University needs to know that in case of emergency there will be a person who will take responsibility for you.

Some examples: financial (bank) statement, salary slip, sponsor letter
Can I study without having a English certificate (TOEFL or IELTS certificate)?
For degree programs taught in English a TOEFL or IELTS certificate is needed.
However, if you are a native English speaker then you don’t need an English certificate.
If you are a non-native speaker, universities don’t require a TOEFL/IELTS certificate if your previous education was taught in English. Just provide evidence that the medium of instruction of your previous education was English. Sometimes this is already stated on your graduation certificate but if not, please provide a letter from the university/school confirming this with a seal and signature
Chinese universities may also accept other English certificates for specific programs, e.g. China Admissions IET which you can register here iet.china-admissions.com
