Applicants must apply for a visa to the Embassy of China in their home country. It is the responsibility of the applicant to organise a study visa prior to arrival in China.
If the applicant is offered a place at the college, they must pay the tuition fees in full to the college in order to apply for a study visa. The college will issue a letter confirming this payment. The original letter is required in order to apply for a student visa. It is important to remember that this process can take several months and you should allow for this when you are planning your admission date.
