If applicants have applied to other universities in the system, they are not allowed to apply to Jilin University. It is because Jilin University will not be able to check the applicants information in the system during the review process, so it can't recommend them for admission.

It is important for applicants to follow the dynamic changes of the review progress of the application system in a timely manner, and to keep checking the email used for the application in order to stay up-to-date on relevant progress information, so as to avoid missing important information such as supplementary documents and interviews or missing the deadline for applying in the management information system of the Chinese Government Scholarship for studying in China. The consequences of failing to review notification and information will be borne by the students themselves.

For the Chinese Government Scholarship independent recruitment Program, only a limited number of candidates can be recommended, so the competition is fierce. Therefore, Jilin University will recommend the most qualified candidates.

Applicants who pass the university's review but fail to pass the review of China Scholarship Council will be given priority for admission if they are willing to apply for self-funded study at our university.

After the application is due, our university will conduct eligibility assessment and academic review of applicants.
