    1. Dear lena chen,

      I am sorry, but at this moment we do not have a database for Universities in China. Have you tried googling for potential universities? The first result that comes out when I search "economic university shanghai" is this page http://www.shufe.edu.cn/structure/english/index
      It's the Shanghai University of Finance and Economics. Doesn't look bad. 🙂
      If you are interested in other universities in China here are two lists. These are the top ten Universities in China for Economics Study http://news.at0086.com/China-university/Top-10-Un
      and here you can find Top 50 Chinese Universities in Economics http://www.cucas.edu.cn/HomePage/2010-04-09/page_

      Good luck in your search. Hope you'll find what's best for you.

    1. Dear Gulli,

      You are asking at the wrong place, seeing as Mladdinfo is not giving the scholarship, so we are not determining the rules. Please contact the correct institution, the one mentioned above, that is actually providing the financial aid, and ask them your question.

      Kind regards

    1. Dear abdullateef,

      We have no way of knowing if the Universities are asking for an online application fee. In most cases they don't, but I am guessing you will be required to pay the tuition fee. It will be best for you to ask the Universities, that you have in mind for applying, directly whether or not they have an online application fee.

      Good luck.

  3. Hello! Me name is Daria.
    I want to apply for SGS at Jiaotong University.
    But I don't know why, I can't upload any of my documents and that's why can't submit the application form.
    If I send all of them by mail directly to the university, will it be enough?

    Best regards!

    1. Dear Daia,

      Seeing as the requirement is to first fill in the application online, and then send it by post, I don't think the documents will be accepted if you just send them by post. Try and contact your desired University and ask if it will be ok, or ask for a solution for the problem with the online application.

      Kind regards

  4. Hello,

    I am from Estonia and I have been accepted to USST for the spring semester as an exchange student. I was wondering if it would be possible for me to apply for any of the scholarships described above?

    Best regards,
    Kaija

    1. Dear Kaija,

      please note that Mladiinfo only informs about this possibility, we do not give scholarships or decide about eligibility of applicants. It should be OK for you to apply for one of the scholarships, however the best way to be perfectly sure is to ask directly at the university. At their webpage you can find the questions&answers section.

      Hope this helps,
