I have already filled the online application form and wanted to ask if i am supposed to register at the host universities also and get their admission letters before the submission of the application package to ECCO ? As it is not specified on the website to register at host university , but the MOFCOM application form asks for the admission letters for the host universities i have selected. Kindly, please help me through this issue. I will be very grateful to you.
    Thanks,
    Best regards,

    1. Hello Mr Isaque, as you have mentioned above that no need to contact the host universities? but the MOFCOM official page describes that the application for MOFCOM shall also include the 3 host universities admission letters. Shall i apply to the host universities first, get their admission letters and then apply for MOFCOM or just apply directly to ECCO? Kindly, if you can provide some details..
      Your help will be highly appreciated.

    2. Hi Mr Isaque,
      As you have mentioned above that *no need to contact the host universities*, is it not necessary to have the university admission letters before i apply for MOFCOM ? because in the MOFCOM application form there’s a requirement to include the admission letters of the host university in the application package to be sent to ECCO. Can you please give some details regarding this issue ?
      Your help will be highly appreciated.
      Thankyou.

  5. Hello I have a question about the deadline for the MOFCOM scholarship application. Most sources I found online have said it is 30th April 2016. I have emailed Chinese embassy in my country (Slovakia) and in UK but neither of them replied. My friend emailed the embassy in Estonia and they said it will be sometime in June what would confirm your information. My question is how do you know it’s 15th of June? I would be very happy it that was the case because it would make things much easier for me. Please let me know.
    Thank you

      1. Well the official webpage says it’s 30th April and email from the embassy also says it’s 30th April. So that’s why i’m wondering what is your source?

      1. Hi!I am emailing from Botswana.I applied for the MOFCOM scholarship and mistakenly put only 1 university choice:Nankai University. My peers have since gotten feedback from other institutions so I was wondering if Nankai has started responding or I have to wait a bit longer…
