Students without medical insurance cannot register.


Students can apply for a visa at the Chinese embassy or consulate in their country using a Certificate of Admission and JW202 form. International students who are in China for more than six months must get an ‘X1’ Visa, valid 30 days after they arrive in China. They have to go to the International Students Office and apply for a residence permit within 30 days of arrival to be able to live in China. 1. Contact Information
