4. If I receive a scholarship, do I have to pay an admission deposit in pre admission step?
Yes, you do need to pay the deposit in time even if you receive a full-tuition scholarship. Paying fees and receiving scholarship are two separate processes.
5. What types of scholarships are provided?
The scholarships include Xuzhou Medical University Scholarship for M.B.B.S. program (for old students), undergraduate nursing program (from admission year till graduation), and all postgraduate programs. For the detailed description of scholarships of a particular program, please refer to the corresponding prospectus from our school website:https://gjjyen.xzhmu.edu.cn/Scholarships.htm. As to the Jiangsu Government Scholarship, it depends on the government plan each year. Sometimes it is set up for new students in admission year, and sometimes for old students after admission year. Those who submit information in government website still shall fill in application in our school system with related documents in admission time. One applicant will not be entitled for more than one kind of scholarship at the same time.
6. When will my study begin?
We currently only have fall intake for degree program, and spring intake for non-degree program. There is NO spring intake for degree programs. For enrolled students, please contact student affairs office written on your admission offer for details in new student’s registration time after you receive the letter.
7. I am applying for postgraduate study. Do I need to get an acceptance letter from my supervisor before I can be admitted?
The provisional acceptance letterwill be used as additional supportive materials for admission. Most postgraduate students do need an acceptance letter from the designated supervisor, while some applicants will be arranged with a professor after admission based on actual situation. After you submit your application, our school will conduct a preliminary review. If you meet our requirements, we will forward your application to related dept. for future check, or they may contact you for interview. Alternatively, you can also contact the supervisor by yourself to secure an acceptance letter. The letter can be downloaded at the bottom of the current year admission brochure web page. However, only when you complete all the admission procedures as required successfully and pass all the evaluation steps by different dept. of university and government offices, then SIE of XZMU will officially enroll you. Besides, please pay attention that the provisional acceptance letter is the document that will be signed by both the professor and the applicant in mutual selection time of application, while the two recommendation letters issued by associate professors (or above) are the documents that the applicants should have already prepared before application and then submit to system for showing their academic performances and other aspects, having nothing to do with the mutual selection of future study.
8. How will the teaching be conducted in the pandemic time?
Blended teaching with online and offline methods are conducted for both new and old students of our university no matter students are at home or in China based on actual situation.
9. Can a student live off-campus?
For undergraduate students, you may apply to live off-campus in the senior year, subject to approval by your parents and SIE. For postgraduate students, you may choose to live off-campus for the duration of your study. For the details, you can communicate with student affairs office after admission. Please be noted that the policies may change in actual situation and SIE keeps the right for adjustment.
