Funded Masters-Level Study in China

UCL has been offered two fully funded studentships by Zhejiang University (ZJU) to study a Masters degree in Contemporary Chinese Studies, taught in English, over two years. 

This programme will be of interest to any current  UCL student – across all UCL subject domains – due to graduate this year, who sees the acquisition of first-hand knowledge about contemporary China as relevant to their own future interests.


Zhejiang University is one of the top-5 universities in China, located in the beautiful city of Hangzhou, 30 minutes by rapid train to Shanghai. The scholarship will include tuition; registration fee; living stipend of CNY 1,700 per month; free accommodation on campus; fees for laboratory experiment, internship, and basic learning materials; basic medical insurance including fees for outpatient medical services, accidental injury, and hospitalization medical treatment; one-time settlement subsidy of CNY 1,500; and possible research-related domestic travel fund.


UCL alumni who graduated with a UCL Masters degree 'with distinction' in 2012 or 2013 are eligible to apply, completing the ZJU programme in just one year.

Visiting students at UCL who are due to graduate from other universities are not eligible to apply.

If you are interested in applying for this programme please contact Andrew as soon as possible to discuss it, either by phone or by email.
