Important Information for candidates applying for Chines Government Scholarship (CSC)
China Scholarship Council (CSC) is offering a lot of scholarships for developing countries to enhance research area and increase business relations in all over the world.
The candidates/students who are applying in china are advised to not to use Gmail as a primary email id in the CSC application form.
I guess the question is in your mind arrived as why not use Gmail ID?
The reason is the google and all its services are blocked in China, so if you provide Gmail ID, you may not receive any response from the University and you can miss the chance to get admission. The reason is the Chinese firewalls block the domain @gmail to send emails. this happens some times but why to take a risk?
Normally University send the documents in hard copy by Post to the successful candidates but in case of any missing documents, Pre-Admission process or admission confirmation, university communicate with the candidate before sending hard copy to the address provided in application form.
Can you imagine here if you miss any email from the CSC or the University you have applied for admission!!!?
This is a real experience happened with me when University tried to communicate with me and i was unable to receive emails because all the emails sent to me were blocked by Chinese firewall and i was unknown to them. it was my luck to suddenly i called to the international school of that university about the status of my application. This is not only for masters but for Ph.D also.
