Giving up the CSC scholarship

Recommended Posts

simplet

Hi everyone,

 

I received the CSC scholarship to study for a PhD, but due to a ridiculous administrative problem I couldn't be enrolled in the university that I chose. As a result I was sent to some random other university and they changed my major for good measure.

 

I still came to China because really there wasn't much else I could do at that point and I was hoping to work something out, but this is completely useless. Turns out it might actually be a good thing for me because I might get enrolled next year in a much better program in Europe.

 

My questoin is this: are there serious consequences for giving up the scholarship? Will I have to reimburse the money or will this have an impact on future visa requests to China? When I got here I got a two-year residency permit that will probably be canceled, does that stay in my file somewhere as a black mark? And last question, the professor I was supposed to work with here originally (before being sent to the random university) has offered me to do some work in her lab for a little while next semester, even though I'm already in discussions to go study in Europe next year: could something bad happen to me if I stay on the scholarship for a while even though I already know I will give it up?

 

Thanks for your insights everyone!

AFAIK once you've got the residency permit, it can't be cancelled. Except if you do something dumb like get caught working on it.  No idea about your other issues.
