Swansea University is pleased to support the Chinese Scholarship Council Scheme (CSC) for the 23/24 academic year for full-time doctoral study, commencing in October 2023.


This year, up to ten CSC applications will be supported by Swansea University. Each scholarship is offered for a maximum period of three years; CSC students are expected to submit their theses within this timescale.

Applicants should be aware that faculty-based shortlisting panels are expected to sit in February 2023. Please note that shortlisting panels may contact candidates within this period. Interviews are expected to take place in early March 2023.


Candidates must have attained, or must be expected to attain, a first-class honours degree and/or a distinction at master’s level.

  • Where applicants have multiple master’s degrees, a distinction must be held in the degree that is most relevant to the intended PhD study.
  • If you are currently studying for a master’s level qualification, ‘award’ is required to take place prior to enrolment and in good time to allow visa application/travel to take place.

Applicants must be able to begin their course of study in October 2023. As a cohort-based programme, deferral to an alternative enrolment window within the academic year or to another academic year is not permissible.


English Language requirements: If applicable – IELTS 6.5 overall (with a score of at least 6.5 in each individual component) or equivalent that is recognised by Swansea University.

Due to funding restrictions, this scholarship is – at this time – open solely to applicants who hold Chinese National Status.


These scholarships cover the full cost of tuition fees only to successful Chinese National candidates to commence their study in October 2023.
