On handling of CSC applications in AY 2021

Notice on Handling of Applications from Chinese Government Scholarship Students in AY 2021 by the Graduate School of Engineering, Hokkaido University

Pursuant to the changes made by the Chinese government regarding the handling of students under the Chinese Government Graduate Student Overseas Study Program set by the China Scholarship Council (CSC), it has become necessary from AY 2020 that Chinese government scholarship students have enrollment permission from their host universities at the time of application.
For this reason, Hokkaido University’s Administration Bureau has decided that, for AY 2021, applicants to the Chinese government scholarship can apply only to the faculties/graduate schools in HU that can give them unconditional offers as master’s, doctoral or research students by the application deadline, February 26th.
In response to this notification, we at the Faculty and Graduate School of Engineering have concluded after careful consideration that it would be extremely difficult for us to officially select successful applicants and give them enrollment permissions by the deadline. Accordingly, we have regretfully decided not to call for applications from Chinese government scholarship students in AY 2021 (enrolment in October 2021 and April 2022). We would like to ask for your kind understanding in this regard.
Please note that if an acceptance letter or invitation letter has been issued by a prospective supervisor of the Faculty and Graduation School of Engineering without a guarantee of admission to HU, such documents do not constitute proof of acceptance by HU.
In addition, please note that if you apply to the CSC for a scholarship using an acceptance letter or invitation letter issued without following the application procedures set out in HU's application guidelines, you will not be eligible for HU's exemption of examination fee, admission fee or tuition fee.
