Scholarship- Study in China

奖学金- 留学中国

Our Confucius Institute is run in partnership with two of the top institutions for higher learning in China, Nanjing University (NJU) and Beijing Languages and Culture University (BLCU), both of which provide excellent short- and long-term Chinese language, culture and teacher training courses throughout the year as well as full undergraduate and postgraduate degrees.

We highly recommend the Confucius Institute Scholarship at BLCU and NJU.
