After submitting their applications, undergraduates in the sci- ences, engineering, agriculture and medicine are required to take stan- dard examinations in basic mathematics, physics and chemistry. Those intending to study management are required to take an examination in basic mathematics. In principle, these examinations are conducted by Chinese Embassies (or Consulates) in the students' home countries. The provisions of this article may be replaced by those of an inter- governmental agreement, if there is one. B. Candidates for graduate degrees must first come to China as ad- vanced students. Candidates for Master's degrees must take written examinations in subjects required by the school in question (except for foreign languages and political studies). Candidates for Doctorate de- grees will be examined orally by their faculty members. The school will notify students of the time of these examinations and of the subjects to be covered. Those who fail such examinations may nevertheless be permitted to stay on as advanced students at a level suited to their academic background. If they are recipients of Chinese government scholarships, the amount of their allowances will be reduced accord- ingly. C. After they are enrolled, senior advanced students will undergo an evaluation by their tutors of their knowledge of their subjects. Those who do not meet the requirements must change their status to that of general advanced students. If they are recipients of Chinese government scholarships, the amount of their allowances will be reduced accord- ingly. D. Undergraduates in liberal arts and general advanced students need take no entrance examinations. The admission decision will be based on the applicant's previous record. IV. Admission and Registration Procedures A. It is the State Education Commission that decides on admissions. The Commission will announce its decisions between the 1st of May and the 10th of August preceding the academic year for which appli- cation is made. The Commission will send to the sponsors (or applicant

150 CHINA BOUND in the case of self-supporting students) via the Chinese Embassy or Consulate in each country the names of successful applicants from that country together with a notice of admission for each. B. At the same time, the Commission will instruct the Chinese Em- bassy or Consulate in each country to issue the necessary visas. The successful applicant or his/her sponsor may obtain a visa from the Chinese Embassy or Consulate on presentation of the notice of admis- sion. In general, students should not apply for visas at Chinese Em- bassies or Consulates in a third country. C. The Commission will assign each foreign student to a school ac- cording to his/her particular field of study or subject of research. The Application Form for Foreigners Wishing to Study in China provides space for the applicant to indicate the subject he/she wishes to pursue in China and three choices of schools.* The Commission will try to take these preferences into account when making assignments. It cannot, however, arrange for foreign students to study in organizations not under its jurisdiction. D. The Chinese academic year begins in September and foreign stu- dents who have been admitted are required to register, on the strength of the notice of admission, between September 1 and September 20. Those who fail to register within the time limit without valid reason will be disqualified. V. Elementary Chinese and Preparatory Courses A. Students who do not know Chinese, or whose knowledge of it is below the necessary level, are required to study the language and pass an examination in it before taking up their specialties. Undergraduates in Chinese language and literature, Chinese history, Chinese philoso- phy, history of Chinese art and Chinese medicine, are required to take a two year course in elementary Chinese. Undergraduates and advanced students in the sciences, engineering or other specialties are required to take a one year course in elementary Chinese. General advanced students studying liberal arts who have attained an adequate level of competence in Chinese may enter their schools directly. Supplementary language courses will be organized for them by their schools, as necessary. Senior advanced students studying liberal arts and candidates for advanced degrees should have attained a higher level of competence *"The List of Specialities in Chinese Universities and Colleges Open to Foreign Students" is available for $2.50 postage and handling charges from the National Association for Foreign Student Affairs, 1860 19th Street NW, Washington, DC 20009.

APPENDIX B 151 in Chinese and be able to use it in pursuing study and research in their special fields. B. Students who are required to take entrance examinations in math- ematics, physics and chemistry under the provisions of Article III. A of these Regulations, and who reach a certain level in those examinations yet fail to meet the requirements for admission, may apply for a one year preparatory course in those subjects. Those who pass the final course examinations will be promoted to undergraduate classes; those who fail will be asked to withdraw. The time spent in preparatory courses does not count toward the length of specialized studies. VI. Academic Programs and Evaluations A. All foreign students are expected to study hard, observe discipline and complete course work prescribed for them by their schools and teachers. B. In principle, students are not permitted to transfer from one school to another, or to change either the subject or the duration of study that was agreed upon at the time of admission. In special cases, however, such changes may be approved by the Commission. For a change of subject, an application should be filed with the Commission before November 1 of the year in which the student is first enrolled, through the diplomatic mission or representative of the sponsoring organization in China of his/her country or through the sponsor in his/her home country. For extension of duration of study, an application should be filed with the Commission before March 1 of the year when the student is due to leave. C. Undergraduates should, in principle, follow the regular academic program established by the school. If necessary, the school authorities will make adjustments in the student's program. Candidates for ad- vanced degrees should, in principle, follow the same program as the Chinese students. General advanced students should follow the pro- gram originally agreed to; no tutors are allocated to them. Senior ad- vanced students mainly study independently, with periodic guidance from the tutors assigned to them. D. Schools are responsible for arranging field trips, field work and laboratory work in accordance with the needs of the academic pro- grams. Students must observe the relevant regulations when they need to use reference books, archives and other materials. E. With the exception of senior advanced students, who will receive written evaluations of their work from their tutors, all other students will be evaluated on the basis of their class work and of examinations

152 CHINA BOUND taken at the end of each term. The schools will commend or reward those who excel in their studies and so notify their sponsors, if any. The sponsors may ask the school authorities for academic records of the students they are sponsoring. F. Undergraduates who, in one academic year, fail a total of three subjects or two major subjects after taking make-up examinations are required to repeat the grade in question. They are allowed to repeat a grade no more than twice and to repeat the same grade only once. Candidates for advanced degrees who fail in their examinations or thesis defense are allowed to extend the period of their studies in ac- cordance with regulations formulated by the Chinese government. General advanced students who fail in their final examinations for the academic year will be asked to withdraw from school. Schools using credit systems should follow relevant regulations. VII. Class Attendance, Suspension of Studies, Withdrawal from Studies, Disciplinary Action A. Foreign students are expected to attend classes regularly and are not allowed to be absent without valid reasons. If they are ill or have a special need to be absent, they should ask for leave in accordance with the school regulations. B. Foreign students should abide by the academic calendar of the school in which they are enrolled. Chinese schools do not observe the national holidays or other festivals of foreign countries. However, on such occasions a foreign student concerned may, on request, be granted a leave of absence. Foreign students must not ask for leave to travel as tourists while school is in session. C. A student who takes a leave of absence for more than two months at a time and cannot catch up with classes upon his/her return will be asked to suspend studies or to repeat the term. This must be done no later than the next academic year. A student who is absent from class too often without valid reason will be subject to disciplinary action in accordance with the regulations of the school. In serious cases, he/she may be asked to withdraw from school. A student who has an extended illness, or who is absent too often, or whose academic record is not satisfactory will be asked by the school authority to suspend study or to withdraw. The diplomatic mission and representative of the sponsoring organization in China of the student's country, or his/her sponsor at home, if any, will be notified of the action in writing. If, for any reason, a foreign student wishes to suspend studies or to withdraw, or if the government or organizational sponsor decides to

APPENDIX B 153 recall its students from China, the diplomatic mission in China of the student's country, or his/her organizational sponsor should submit a formal request to the Commission or to the school authorities. D. A student who breaches the discipline of his/her school, damages public property, fights with others or behaves in other unacceptable ways, will be subject to disciplinary action by the school authorities. According to the circumstances and gravity of the offense, the student will be given a warning, a serious warning, or a demerit recording, be placed on probation, asked to withdraw or be expelled from school. If a student on one year probation has clearly improved his/her con- duct during the probation period, the disciplinary action against hirn/ her may be rescinded. If a student fails to improve his/her conduct while on probation, he/she will be asked to withdraw from school. When the school authorities take disciplinary action against a stu- dent, they will inform the student and also send written notification of the action to the diplomatic mission or representative of the sponsoring organization of the student's country in China, or to the student's spon- sor at home. VIII. Observance of Chinese Laws A. Foreign students must obey the laws and decrees of the Chinese government, abide by the rules and regulations of their schools and respect Chinese ways and customs. B. Foreign students coming to study in China should have ordinary passports. Before starting school, bearers of diplomatic, service or spe- cial passports should go through certain special procedures at Chinese public security departments and submit to them necessary documents issued by their countries' diplomatic missions or representatives of their sponsoring organizations in China. Such students will not enjoy diplomatic or other privileges during their studies in China. C. Within a short period of time after their arrival in China, foreign students must obtain residence permits from the local public security departments. When a foreign student wishes to travel to other countries, tour the Hong Kong and Macao regions, or return home for any reason, the diplomatic mission or representative of the sponsoring organization of his/her country in China should give written notification to the school ten days in advance, if possible. With the approval of the school, the student should go to the local public security department to apply for the necessary exit and reentry visas. When a foreign student wishes to visit an area of China to which foreigners may gain access only with permission, he/she must apply to the local public security department for a travel permit.

154 CHINA BOUND D. Foreign students must observe the Chinese customs regulations concerning materials to be taken out of China or mailed abroad. The following items are allowable: textbooks, class handouts and related materials issued to them by the school, study notes, photographs and audiovisual materials related to study. Any materials issued by the school which are not intended for outside circulation must be approved for exit by the school authorities, who will provide the student with an itemized certificate of authorization to present to the customs officer. E. Foreign students who have violated Chinese laws or regulations, endangered China's national security, disturbed public order or harmed the interests of others will be punished by the Chinese public security and judicial departments according to law.

They should observe the regulations of the dining halls and canteens and maintain order in them. B. Chinese schools provide dormitories for their foreign students. In general, two students share one room. No special accommodations are available for married couples or for students' family members. Foreign students must abide by the school's regulations relating to housing. C. Foreign students who fall ill during their studies in China may consult doctors in the school clinics, who will refer them to outside hospitals for treatment, if necessary. Students on Chinese government scholarships enjoy free medical care. This, however, does not include the following: abortions, dentures, eye- glasses and diet supplements. Self-supporting students are responsible for all their own medical expenses. X. Extracurricular and Holiday Activities A. Foreign students may take part in the activities organized by the student associations of their schools, as well as in the athletic and recreational activities of the Chinese students. They may join the var- ious athletic and performing arts groups of their schools. They may also, if they wish, take part in activities organized by the Chinese to mark major holidays. Normal and friendly contacts between foreign students and Chinese teachers, students and people in general are en- couraged. B. If foreign students wish to organize activities in their school to celebrate their national days and major national festivals, they must

APPENDIX B 155 obtain the approval of the school authorities. They must observe the rules and regulations of their schools in this connection. C. Foreign students on Chinese government scholarships may join trips organized by schools during winter and summer vacations; every other year, the school will bear a portion of the expense for their travel and lodging. The schools will likewise pay parts of the expense for those scholarship students who are pursuing advanced studies for at least one academic year but less than two. All self-supporting students and scholarship students who are pur- suing advanced studies for less than one academic year may join these tours at their own expense. XI. Academic Degrees and Certificates A. Undergraduates and candidates for a Master's degree who pass the examinations at the end of their studies will receive certificates and, in accordance with the Regulations of the People's Republic of China for Conferring Academic Degrees, the Bachelor's and Master's degrees respectively. Candidates for a Doctorate degree who pass the final ex- aminations and the thesis defense will be awarded Doctorate degrees. Those who fail such examinations will receive certificates of completion of studies. General advanced students and senior advanced students who have completed the required work will receive certificates of advanced study. No degrees will be conferred upon them. B. Students who withdraw from school before completing their pro- grams will be issued certificates indicating the period of time during which they have studied. C. Foreign students should leave China within 15 days after their graduation or conclusion of studies. XII. Scholarships of the Government of the People's Republic of China A. Scholarships of the Government of the People's Republic of China are awarded to certain foreign students by the Commission in accor- dance with bilateral exchange agreements between the governments concerned. The Commission provides a monthly allowance to the stu- dent in Chinese renminbi (ynan) and also allocates to the school a sum of money to cover his/her expenses for tuition, textbooks and class handouts, laboratory work, field trips, medical treatment, housing equipment, lodging and extracurricular activities. It provides an ad- ditional allocation to the school to cover the expenses of trips organized by the school on holidays.

156 CHINA BOUND B. The basic monthly allowance for living expenses of scholarship students is as follows: for undergraduate students: 180 ynan for Master's degree candidates and general advanced students: 200 ynan for Doctorate degree candidates and senior advanced students: 220 ynan An additional monthly allowance of 30 ynanis provided to scholar- ship recipients in the following fields of study: physical culture, navi- gation' dance, theater and wind instruments.

An additional monthly allowance is provided to scholarship recipi- ents studying in certain regions of China, as follows: in Guangdong and Fujian Provinces: 30 ynan in Gansu, Heilongjiang, Jilin and Liaoning Provinces: 10 ynan C. Payment of allowances to scholarship students begins on the day of their arrival at school. Students who study for an entire academic year receive their allowances up to July 31 (including during the winter vacation). Those who study for more than one academic year will also receive their allowances during the intervening winter and summer vacations, even if they return home for a visit at that time. If a student remains absent from school without valid reason beyond the period of a prescribed vacation, no allowance will be issued to him/her for the period of unauthorized absence. Those who terminate their studies and return home before the end of the academic year will receive their allowances up to the month in which they return home. Scholarships are discontinued during suspension of studies, and no retroactive payment is made after resumption of studies. If a student withdraws from studies or is expelled from school, the scholarship is discontinued from the first day of the month following the withdrawal or expulsion. XIII. Expenses Borne by Self-Supporting Students A. Before coming to China, foreign students who are providing their own financial support must have a financial guarantor and must make sure that they have adequate resources to pay all expenses during the period of their studies here. All expenses must be paid in cash, according to the relevant provisions of the Regulations Governing Grants to Foreign Scholarship Students and Fees for Self-Financing Foreign Students (Feb- ruary 19851. [See Appendix C.]

APPENDIX B 157 B. For self-supporting students, school fees for tuition and housing are calculated in U.S. dollars and are to be paid after conversion into Foreign Exchange Certificates (FEC), according to the exchange rates of February 1 and September 1 of the year in which payments are made. (1) Tuition fees for one academic year are as follows: Students in the liberal arts Undergraduates and general advanced students: US$1,200 Master's degree candidates: US$1,600 Senior advanced students: US$2,000 Doctorate degree candidates: US$2,500 Students in the sciences, engineering, agriculture, medicine, physical culture and fine arts Undergraduates: US$1,600 General advanced students: US$2,000 Master's degree candidates and senior advanced students: US$2,500 Doctorate degree candidates: US$4,000 (2) Housing expenses are US$ 1.50 per bed per day for a double room in the school dormitory, two students sharing one room. The cost of a single room (available in some cases on request and with the approval of the school authorities) is US$4.00 per day. (3) The student is responsible for his/her board, medical care, text- books and class handouts. He/she is also responsible for expenses for additional laboratory work, field work and field trips which are not related to the teaching program, as well as the other expenses for trans- fer from one school to another. C. Tuition is payable in two parts, half at the beginning of each term. Students who fail to pay tuition at the specified time will not be allowed to register. In special cases, students may apply to the school authorities for permission to delay payment. However, payment may not be de- layed beyond one month after the beginning of the term, and a penalty will be charged for late payment in the amount of five percent of the total tuition for one term. Students who stay at school for more than one term but less than a full academic year pay tuition for the entire academic year. If, before the end of a term, a student transfers to another school for reasons not the responsibility of the Chinese, he/she will receive no refund of tuition, and no payments may be transferred to the new school. The student must pay tuition to the new school. Housing expenses are also to be paid at the beginning of each term. However, if this creates a hardship for a student, with the approval of the school authorities, he/she may make monthly payments instead.

Regulations Concerning Short-Term Study Courses for Foreigners (January 1983) A. The State Education Commission of the People's Republic of China welcomes the voluntary participation of young people and others from countries outside China in short-term study courses in the Chinese language or any other specialty. B. The Commission encourages the relevant Chinese institutions of higher education to sign bilateral agreements for the running of short- term courses directly with the relevant foreign institutions. The Com- mission also encourages relevant Chinese institutions to sign such agreements with friendly, non-profit, foreign organizations that are non-governmental. The kind of specialty, length of study and expenses of the short-term course may be negotiated through consultation by both parties. The agreement should be signed before December 1 of the year prior to the starting date of the course and it becomes effective only after approval by the competent authorities of the provinces, mu- nicipalities and autonomous regions where the relevant Chinese insti- tutions are located. C. The State Education Commission of China is also willing to hold discussions with governments of foreign countries on the matter of sending students to China to participate in short-term study courses. This item will be included in the bilateral exchange programs. D. A short-term study course lasts at least four weeks and at most one normal school term, that is, around five months. Students of the course will receive a school badge and a temporary student's identity card from the relevant Chinese institution, so as to indicate their status during their stay in China. Upon completion of the course, students will receive a certificate stating their specialty and length of study and should return their school badges and/or identity cards to the relevant institutions in accordance with the rules. E. The age limit for students in a short-term study course is 16 to 45. F. Applicants should fill in the application form issued by the rele- vant Chinese institution of higher education which will decide on ap- proval of the application. Those whose applications have been approved should hold ordinary passports. They must apply for an entry visa from the Chinese Embassy or Consulate in their own country, and not from a Chinese Embassy or Consulate in a third country.

APPENDIX B 159 G. The sponsoring party should appoint a leader among the students and send them to China together as a group. H. Students in a short-term study course must observe the laws and decrees of the Chinese government, respect the Chinese people's cus- toms and habits and abide by the rules and regulations of the relevant Chinese institutions of higher education. I. Students in a short-term study course will bear their own tuition, lodging, textbook, travel and board expenses, which should be paid upon enrollment in accordance with the rules of the recipient institu- tions. In general, payment should be made directly by the students to the recipient institution. Should both sides agree, the expenses may be paid by the sponsoring party in one sum for all the students. The State Education Commission of China does not provide scholarships for stu- dents of short-term courses. J. Students in a short-term study course can participate collectively in the trip organized by the recipient institutions in accordance with the relevant agreement. On such a trip, they enjoy the same preferential terms as long-term students. The recipient institutions are not respon- sible for arranging individual trips and a student making such a trip does not enjoy any preferential terms. No arrangements will be made by the State Education Commission of China or the relevant institutions for relatives and friends of students who wish to come to China to make a visit. K. The students should return to their own countries as soon as possible after the conclusion of their study and organized trip. As a general rule, the State Education Commission of China and the relevant institutions will not transfer a student from a short-term course to a long-term one, nor extend his or her entry visa.
