What happens if I refuse CIS after being enrolled?

Hello!

I applied for CIS to study a master’s program for two years, therefore I also had to make a contract with a Confucius Institute that if I study a master with CIS then I have to work for that institute for 5 years.

What happens if they accept my application, but I refuse in the end? (Because of another scholarship opportunity)

Does anyone have experience with that?

Thanks for any help!

They will hunt you down and kill you like a dog. (Only kidding.) But seriously, wouldn't that be rather dishonest, regardless of your circumstances? Wouldn't it be best to honor your commitment?

My thoughts exactly (except for the bit about the dog!). Possibly asking for trouble? 5 years is a hefty amount of time - is this standard?

I remember reading in this forum that refusing once you have been selected probably will drastically lower the chances of getting another scholarship in the future. I don't know how truth these claims are, but I wouldn't be surprised.

My bad, it’s not a real contract. It’s more like an agreement saying IF I have the scholarhip and IF I finish that major, I would work for them for 5 years. If I have a better opportunity, of course I would take it.

Yeah, I was expecting something like that. Thank you for your help!
