International students may need to meet extra requirements in addition to the general ones.
Foreign nationals are normally required for a visa to travel to China unless they are from visa-free countries. The Chinese embassies and consulates issue visas to foreign citizens who wish to travel to China. For further information, please visit the official website of the Chinese embassy or consulates in your country.
Students who need visas are strongly advised to apply for a visa as soon as they are admitted to a program. Applicants should note that visa applications can take time to be processed and this time period can vary from a few days to a few weeks in some cases.
Please also note student visas may not apply here as they are usually for students who intend to enroll in full-time academic programs and may therefore not be approved for short-term study programs.
Foreigners coming to China should also meet relevant health requirements. They may be required for an infectious diseases clearance.
