“A great leader's courage to fulfill his vision comes from passion, not position”-- John Maxwell. The most important thing about choosing a course is to think about what you really enjoy doing so that reaching your goals will be easily accomplished with great happiness. Passion plays a vital role in choosing a course.

In China, degree courses tend to be specialized, allowing students to focus on their chosen course from day one. Before you choose a course, carefully read the course descriptions and make sure they are in alignment with your dream job.

In China, courses are categorized into family courses and are further divided into sub-courses. International Students have a range of courses to choose from. Students can apply up to five courses in different universities.

Some universities offers a Scholarship scheme for some courses.

In China, undergraduate degree courses are offered for 4-5 years depending on the major.  Master’s degree courses are offered for 2-3 years and doctorate degree courses are offered for 3-5 years. Non-degree courses take a life span of either a semester i.e. 3-5 months or two semesters i.e. 1 year.
