China – Visa
Applying for a Chinese student visa
All international students must apply for a student visa (X visa) in order to study in China. Please check the latest visa regulations and prices from your home country’s Chinese embassy. On the embassy website, you will also be able to download a visa application form before applying for your visa.
Leaving the country during your study abroad period can be tricky and we recommend traveling to other countries before or after the semester to avoid paying extra visa fees.
Please note that the visa application process can take some time. We highly recommend you not to book early flights dates: we recommend you fly to China only a few days before the semester starts, and return a few days after it ends.
You will receive more information about the student visa after the application period for your study semester has ended.
