Q & A

Frequently Asked Questions


About the application deadline

* CSC/SGS scholarships: Mar. 31

* Self-funded studies: Jun. 30 (better in April or May)

* Before the deadline, one should finish the online application and payment of the application fee, and the complete hard copies of his/her application materials should be received by the university.


About the scholarships

* Most of the inquirers concern a lot the scholarships, like if Donghua offers scholarships, or how to receive it. Donghua University is appointed to accept international students either with Chinese Government Scholarships (CSC) or Shanghai Government Scholarships (SGS). 

* There are a large amount of details about scholarships which have already been included in two Prospectuses, the university seldom replies the general requests on it, so please read one of those two Prospectuses carefully to find information you need.


About the degree programs/majors offered by DHU

You may refer to one of those two Prospectus to see if the program you expect to apply for are provided by Donghua University, particularly the master or doctoral programs related to your previous studies (applying for a different field of study will get little chance to be admitted). Hence, the inquiries simply about the program setup will hardly receive the responses from the university.


About the teaching language

It is very important to learn in advance about the teaching language of the program you want to apply for, as well as your language eligibility.

* The certificate of HSK5 obtained within the last two years is required by the Chinese taught programs. The minimum score is 180. Those who fail to provide HSK certificate or relevant language certificate will have almost no chance to be admitted. In such cases, applicants are advised to consult other universities, or study Chinese language in the first place to obtain HSK5 certificate.

* The entry requirement for English taught programs is the certificate of IELTS or TOFEL obtained within the last two years. The minimum is IELTS 6.0 or TOFEL IBT 80. Those who fail to provide IELTS/TOFEL certificate or relevant language certificate will have almost no chance to be admitted. In such cases, applicants are advised to consult other universities.

* No scholarship is available for the bachelor programs taught in English and the English–taught master program in International Business (MIB).


About the Pre-admission Letter

* Please be aware that Pre-admission Letter is a supporting (not required) material for those who will apply CSC scholarships directly to Chinese Embassy, Consulate or designated dispatching authorities in applicant’s home country. They have their own application requirements, regulations and procedures, for which you should contact the relevant department in your home country.

* However, if your application will be submitted later directly to the Donghua University, no matter for any types of scholarships or for self-funded studies, pre-admission letter is useless and totally no need to be submitted with the other application materials.

* To apply for the pre-admission letter, you need to email the complete electronic application materials required to the university after Mar. 5, and wait for about three weeks for the result. If the university agrees to accept you, the pre-admission letter will be issued and emailed to you.


About the Supervision Confirmation Letter (SCL)

Supervision Confirmation Letter (SCL) is required by certain schools of Donghua University, the master or doctoral applicants should refer to Postgraduate Programs Prospectus (P25 or P27) for the specific requirement on the SCL and set up contacts with the relevant teacher on his /her own. 

* The application for school of Business and Management (doctoral programs) or for Fashion and Art Design Institute (Master or doctoral programs) will be rejected if applicants fail to provide the SCL.

* For the English introduction of certain programs and academic faculties, please refer to the following website: http://english.dhu.edu.cn/graduate/list.htm. Further more information may be found by applicants themselves on Donghua University’s official English or Chinese website.
