The University of Manchester - China Scholarship Council joint scholarship

The University of Manchester is proud to offer six scholarships for Chinese PhD students that will cover fees and living expenses for three years, thanks to a joint scheme between the University and the China Scholarship Council (CSC).

The China Scholarship Council is an organisation that provides financial support to Chinese citizens wishing to study abroad and for foreign students wishing to study in China.

Since 2015, the University of Manchester has been participating in a joint-award agreement with the China Scholarship Council to PhD students from China.

The University of Manchester will cover full tuition fees for the period of the relevant programme as outlined in the offer letter (usually three years). CSC will provide living allowances as prescribed by the Chinese Government, and will cover the round-trip international airfare for students from China to the United Kingdom, visa and passport application fees.
