Tsinghua Chinese language course - Spring 2019 - questions

Recommended Posts

gnesh

Hi,

 

I'm from Spain and speak chinese with my parents (I know some chinese character, maybe less than 100 I think)

 

i'm going to enroll in spring chinese course at Tsinghua (if I get accepted). I know it's a bit early, but I have some questions before application date is open

 

- I can't find the exact application schedule for 2019 spring course, is it the same date as 2018? (15 october - 31 november)

- Is there any guide for booking a room at Tsinghua campus accommodation? (by some other post, I think I should get the idea of looking some accommodation out campus)

- Where can I find a 2019 course calendar with the begin, end and festive dates?

- Is there any blog that show you how is living in china for a "foreigner" student? (I'm following Hafuguo youtube channel)

 

PS: My english isn't very well too... I know i'll have a hard time studying in china :(

Feel bad that no one has replied. 

 

1. Email them. There website is pretty swish these days and, even when I applied years ago, they were pretty good at communication.

2. Most threads here say the dorms sell out instantly so why even bother? Just live off campus.

3. Just look for Chinese festival and holiday dates generally. Everyone is off the same time roughly. Of course, you being a student will have the legal holiday for those dates and likely extra days off for bigger holidays like Spring Festival and then summer. Unlikely any Xmas holiday.

4. This forum has lots of information. 

 

Hope that helps!

Hi ChTTay

 

I'll email them (I found this email [email protected] at http://www.tsinghua.edu.cn/publish/iclccen/5561/index.html)

 

About the dorm, at least I want to try to book a room, but I'll search some information about living off campus

 

Thanks! :D

 

Edit: I've got an answer from the university about spring application schedule

Hi Türkay Rose, I think you can pay their fee using any credit card (IRC it's about 400-500 RMB).

Yeah, we can look for an apartment together, but first I'll try to book a room in THU.

it seems like the application is not open yet ...

Is this website where we have to do the online application? http://intlstudent.cic.tsinghua.edu.cn/app/account/login.html?preventCache=1539635335905

 

EDIT: Answer from Tsinghua

Please apply one week later. We are changing to a new application system, and now there is a bug. We are trying to solve it. Sorry about this. Please pay attention that the online application website will be changed to the new address. Please refer to the application guide that will be updated later.

No, I'm still a chinese citizen 

 

I didn't know that non chinese citizen is a requirement for some universities :(

 

Edit: I'm looking in BLCU and BFSU website and they don't say anything about only for international student requirement.

If you really want to go to a particular University, check their Chinese website for the same course (if it exists) and then try to contact them directly.

@Flickserve I don't have any university in mind.

 

I contacted to BFSU and BLCU by email.

 

Only BLCU answered. I asked them if I can apply for Chinese course (6 month or 1 year) being chinese citizen and they answered 

 

Quote

Please find the BLCU programs at http://admission.blcu.edu.cn/en/2018/0914/c1218a1860/page.htm     

 

Please find the courses information about the programs on:

Short term Chinese langauge program http://admission.blcu.edu.cn/en/74/list.htm  

1 year Chinese language program http://admission.blcu.edu.cn/en/72/list.htm 

1 year preparatory program http://admission.blcu.edu.cn/en/73/list.htm

 

As to the levels of classes, since there will be classes for learners of varied Chinese proficiency in each non-degree program, and a class-placement test will be given to the students at the beginning of each program, you can simply choose a program that fits your own schedule the best and do not be concerned about your own Chinese level.

 

If you only want to learn Chinese language, you can choose the 1 year Chinese language course.

If you are preparing to go in to a B.A. course in China and want to learn some courses concerned about business besides Chinese langauge, you can choose the preparatory course.

 

How to apply?

(1) Apply for the program by BLCU online application system: http://lxs.blcu.edu.cn/StusSystem/ . 
or

(2) Download the BLCU application form http://admission.blcu.edu.cn/en/xzzx/list.htm, and send us all application documents (list on the third page of the application form) together with the form by email.

 

Application fee:

Non-degree program: CNY 600, Degree program: CNY 800

You need to pay the application fee before you submit your application documents, because the application fee payment proof is one of the documents required. And you can pay the tuition when you arrive at the university.

 

Normally it will take about 2-3 weeks to process one application; if you are accepted, we will mail you the admission notice and visa application form (JW202) by post to the address on your application form.


When you receive the admission package, please contact accommodation office to book room if you need an on-campus room. More details please refer to http://admission.blcu.edu.cn/en/42/list.htm

 

So I think they don't have any problem with chinese citizen applying for the course.

 

I'll wait for the answer of BFSU and then i'll choose one of them.
