Among the international students who are unable to get admission or scholarships in universities abroad, there is an institute offering foreign students with fully-funded scholarships. That is Peking University located in Beijing is a research university and a member of the C9 League.
Peking University recently offered a fully-funded scholarship of 470,000 yuan ($66,500) to a Filipino student. Recently meeting the standards of scholarship. But he had inadequate Chinese language skills. So, he will take a one-year Chinese course to build some language skills at Shandong University.
The post also said that student has inadequate Chinese language skills. It was not required according to the standards of scholarship.
It was quite a good initiative taken by a Chinese University. When other countries are not issuing that many scholarships to international students.
It also said that the student passed the Philippine government selection process. The student was qualified for the Chinese scholarship scheme. On Monday, Peking University Health Science Center said on its official website that the student was enrolled in a clinical medicine major, which is taught in the Chinese language.
The official statement of the university came after the offer was posted for the student. The post stated that the student received a 470,000-yuan scholarship. It will make them eligible to take his course and complete studies at Peking University.
The post got some serious attention in a short amount of time. During the discussion, some netizens said that the university’s standards are too low. So, it provides international students with a lot of scholarships. While others complain about the bumper scholarship offered to the student.
The University also mentioned that. The student will unable to take major courses. In case she fails to get the minimum number of marks in the University Test.
Scholarships given to students are evaluated on an annual basis, and they could be revoked if a student is unable to keep up with the standards.
According to the standards of China’s scholarship for international students. The Filipino student can get a maximum of 66,200-yuan scholarship per year. while her University fees are only 45,000-yuan per year.
Providing bumper full scholarships to international students makes sense. When tuition fees for international students are always more than that of local students in most countries.
As Xiong Bingqi, deputy director of the Shanghai-based 21st Century Education Research Institute told the Global Times on Tuesday that. Universities should take the enrollment and admission of international students seriously. That means the international students deserve the scholarships offered by the Universities.
A South Korean student studying English literature at Nankai University in Tianjin. He told the Global Times on Monday that he had to pass the level 5/6 of HSK (the Chinese proficiency test) and an IELTS 7.0 to enter the University.
