- China is one of the world’s oldest civilizations, and has a long, colourful history and dynamic culture. Perhaps the best known features of Chinese culture as Chinese Medicine and Kung Fu.
- China has the world’s most robust economy and was the host country for the 2008 Olympic Games and 2010 World Expo.
- Worldwide, more people speak Chinese than any other language, and it’s a very descriptive language. It plays an increasingly essential role in the fields of international exchange and trade.
- China leads or reaches world-class standards in many branches of science and technology, for instance in the field of biological science and astronomy.
- The Chinese government is focusing on “deepening reform, improving management, ensuring quality, and developing prudently.” The Chinese government is adjusting old policies and enacting new ones to ensure that China provides a great environment for international students.
- We are excited to have a group of key Chinese institutions present at the 2013 Fall Study and Go Abroad Fair in Vancouver and Calgary. You will have the chance to talk with professors, admission officers and even university presidents face to face, and get up-to-date information on living and studying in China. .
The Chinese Service Centre for Scholarly Exchange (CSCSE) – About Us
The CSCSE is the organizing body for the Chinese delegation of universities for the Study and Go Abroad Fair. CSCSE is a legally registered corporate body affiliated to the Ministry of Education, People’s Republic of China. Founded in 1989, CSCSE specializes in offering a full range of services for international scholarly exchanges for Chinese students and scholars who are going abroad and returning from abroad and for international students and scholars coming to study in China.
CSCSE organizes the participation of Chinese universities in international educational exhibitions across the globe, and even co-hosts an independent fair with a local educational body. These fairs, together with “Study in China Briefings and Seminar”, provide international students a face-to-face opportunity to talk with student recruitment professionals from Chinese universities to answer their questions and find out more about lifestyle and studies in China.
Advantages of Studying at the Chinese Universities attending the Study and Go Abroad Fair
Top Quality and Excellent Reputation
The universities attending the Study and Go Abroad Fair are the top universities in China, many of which are on the approved lists for Project 985 (a project to promote the development and reputation of the Chinese higher education system) and Project 211 (a project to raise research standards at top universities) and quality-guaranteed by the Chinese government.
The universities and institutions are located either in historical or typical Chinese cities, including metropolis such as Shanghai and Guangzhou, and historical cities such as Hangzhou and Nanjing.
Our universities offer flexible admission and program choices for your stay in China. You can take a half-year or longer-term program, and major in a relatively specific discipline; at the same time you can also make full use of your summer or winter holiday, getting to know the Chinese culture.
Many universities, like the ones attending the Study and Go Abroad Fair, offer programs in English in fields such as economy, management, law and public administration.
Chinese Language and Culture Learning
Start in the beginner’s level if you are just starting out with learning the language or, for more advanced students, a placement test will match you with your level of Chinese. Some language courses will include preparation for the HSK, “Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi” in Chinese, which is an international test for Chinese fluency and proficiency.
There are designated government scholarships encouraging foreign students to study in China. You can apply directly for these through the Chinese universities. For more detailed information please contact the University Student Advisors for help and guidance.
