Online Pre-Application Request
Prospective students must submit their Online Pre-application Requests form via KUT's Online Pre-Application Form for the CSC-KUT Scholarship Program (Co-supervised doctoral study student). The request will be sent to the applicant's preferred co-supervisor for consideration. This process is for determining (prior to the submission of a formal application) whether the intending applicant meets the supervisor's requirements. Please choose one co-supervisor from the CSC-KUT Co-supervisor list and submit a completed Online Pre-application request via the Online Pre-Application Form. After the co-supervisor has reviewed your Pre-application Request, she/he will contact you to arrange an interview and documentary screening. We strongly recommend that you prepare all documents before you submit your Online Pre-Application Request. Only one online pre-application request may be sent during a given enrollment period.
* Interviews will be conducted via video conferencing software such as Webex.
* When you obtain the permission of your preferred co-supervisor, submit all required documents to KUT via post. We do NOT accept any documents which do not meet our requirement, or documents which do not arrive by the deadline.
* Please note that your preferred co-supervisor may not contact you if your pre-application request is rejected.
* Your research theme shall be decided through consultation with your co-supervisor at KUT and your supervisor at your Chinese university
