Application process

Applying for the 2022/23 academic year

The application deadline for entry in the 2022/23 academic year has now passed.

The deadline for applications for entry in the 2023/24 academic year is likely to be January 2022. Please check this page in September 2022 for the precise date.

Applying for the scholarship programme

You should apply directly for admission to the University of Bath before the application deadline.

Please state clearly on the application form that you wish to apply for a CSC-Bath scholarship. You should indicate this in Section 3 Finance (question 2) of the application form.

You must meet the English language requirements before the closing date for applications.

An exception will be made for you if you are currently in your final year of studies at a UK-based higher education institution and are due to graduate at the end of the 2021/22 academic year. For you, entry to the University would be conditional upon the successful completion of your current course. This would also count as evidence of your English-language proficiency.

If you are successful, you will be sent an offer and nomination letter by Monday 14 March 2022 with which you can complete your application to CSC. If you are not successful in the CSC competition you will be asked if you wish to be considered as a self-funded applicant after this date.

CSC funding application guidance will be published on the CSC website (in Mandarin Chinese).
