The Third Tip is about language.
Most of the universities in China are providing programs taught in Chinese or English, and sometimes both. The language proficiency is among the most important factors that may affects the result of your application for the CSC Scholarship.
"What is the basic requirement for language proficiency?"
It depends on what kind of program you choose, i.e., Chinese taught or English taught. In other words, you should decide what language you will be using for your future study.For further concerns about all Guangxi University(GXU) Programs click here
To study programs taught in Chinese, for example, you should have at least passed the HSK 4 (level 4) for undergraduates and HSK 5 (level 5) for postgraduates.
" I don't have any basic knowledge about Chinese language, but I want to study the Chinese taught program. Can I get the scholarship that covers one- year Chinese learning?"
The answer is THAT IS NOT LIKELY TO HAPPEN. You have to master Chinese language before applying for the scholarship.
"is there any exception? "
Yes. Some particular programs may be available for those total beginner of Chinese language. For example, Chinese Language Program ( undergraduate) at Guangxi University accepts total beginners. They will study four straight years for the bachelor degree without preparatory Chinese learning.
If you are apply for the programs taught in English, mostly Ph .D programs at Guangxi University, you should also provide the relevant English proficiency certificate. GXU now only recognize the result of two international English Proficiency tests, i.e., IELTS and TOFEL. Applicants should at least acquire 6.0 in IELTS and 80 in TOFEL.
