2. I am applying for the CSC Scholarship. Why are some majors available on the CSC website, but not on CSU website?
Chinese Government Scholarship (also known as CSC scholarship) is divided into two categories, university enrollment program and country-specific program. CSC Scholarship published on CSU website is university enrollment program, only for some majors and you need to apply on both CSC website and CSU website.
The direct application to the embassies and consulates abroad is the country-specific program, and the major is not limited. You may contact us in advance to obtain the pre-admission letter. The country-specific program only needs to be applied on the CSC website.
If the major you are applying for is not available on CSU website, but is available on the CSC website, you can apply directly to the Chinese embassy abroad.
Ps. If you miss the application time of the embassy or consulate abroad, you can also apply for CSU scholarship!
