According to my understanding qualifications vary between countries, universities and other institutions.

 

Applying to BA is easy and pretty much everyone can get in who pays. If you have taken the HSK, you will be places on the right group and year. For example if you have a good grade from HSK5, you might be able to start straight from year 3!

 

Applying for MA requires recommendation letters from professors and good grades, along with a good HSK. I applied for a scholarship, so didn't check how the applying process goes if you pay your self.

Hi @xuefang

 

Thanks very much, your posts helps me a lot. Sorry for so many questions, but I am totally lost :/

 

I would like to go to the University to get more info. Do you know where I need to go?

 

By the way, do you know if there is any intensive HSK preparation course in the University?

 

Thanks,

 

Zea

Go to the International Office which is located near the South gate which is also the main gate near the metro station exit A. They have a website with lots of information here: http://iso.sysu.edu.cn/ywb/index.htm Right now the office is probably very busy as it's registration time, but after this time passes, the teachers will have more time to answer your questions.

 

They have selective HSK courses, few levels on a same course, but I haven't taken those.

 

I'm happy to help :)

Hana, when you arrive in Guangzhou you need to go talk to the people at the Office for International Students’ Affairs, Room 101, School of  Chinese as a Second Language (SCSL) just beside the Zijingyuan Hotel on campus.  They will help you with going through the procedures to get your forms and direct you where to go for the residence permit and medical exam.  Yes they hold their copy of the JW202 form for you, which you receive once registered with the school.

Your visa is just an entry visa to come to China.  The residence permit is the visa that will replace it.  Assuming you aren't lazy, if you start the process at the Students affairs office the day or day after you arrive, and go take your medical exam the same day, (if you are are required to take one) you will have your medical exam results within a few days and can submit everything you need at the PSB (the people who provide the residence permit).  All together about 7 days.

Hello. Good day everyone.

 

My company offered a job to handle their office in Guangzhou. I accepted without thinking twice.

 

I study chinese for 2 years but progress has been slow. It may be a great oportunity to go deep into chinese.

 

Is possible to handle the undergraduate course of chinese at SYSU and work at the same time? Hows the workload of the course? Is it too much to handle? Do they have courses at night time?

 

Thanks!

hi  Stella06
I was study there at last semester, I can tell you that teacher SYS is not bad i'm satisfied, but all organisation process is very low and employers is not competent , nobody don't know nothing in student office telling one thing in dormitory other things. About dormitory there have 4 in all of them you can live alone in room just pay double price, first dormitory calling Foreign dormitory but room there need booked in advance usually is full, second near first almost same building with room same situation, third dormitory i'm forget his number but it's near north small gate (not recommended) that dormitory look like jail building around 7 or 8 floors NO HAVE elevator, very small rooms but have shower and toilet in side and price is cheap. Fourth and last dormitory number 103 before i think in this building was hotel, rooms is big in side room look like hotel first 6 floor only double rooms but at 7 floor is single room i was live there but it's not so cheap i pay about 9800 RMB per semester also need pay for electricity and water bill payment for electricity something crazy system )))you should put money to your student card after go to special machine from you student card you need put money to electricity card but if you will want take back money from electricity card it's not real))) they still owe me 100 RMB, wifi have only at 7 floor other floors they block wifi on cable internet, also there no have kitchen and you can't use your own refrigerator or oven.

When I was there a couple of years ago the new foreign exchange students would always organise shared apartments. I think it cost me about 2'000/m back then all included, obviously more expensive than student dormitories.

There isn't yet official timeframe for when you need to register, but the information will come out late this semester. But looking at my calendar, it states the Spring semester begins around February 19-21. You can bookmark http://iso.sysu.edu.cn/ which is always updated with new registration information.
