Ø Take a look at the previous results (optional) of CSC scholarships from different universities, so you should evaluate the seats at each university and then apply for seats with higher seats.
Ø Use Google to find out results.
Ø  Write Study Plan of almost 1000 words or 800 words minimum (for Master)Make a good proposal for your research topic if applying for PhD not master
Ø Try to make a study plan by yourself, no anyone will share his/her study plan because there are chances that the same study plan may be in the same University
Ø  Get your passport ready
Ø Good Research CV

Ø  Attested photocopies of docs (degree+transcript) from notary public (authorized lawyer).
Ø  An English proficiency certificate is required from the previous university.
Ø Physical examination certificate from a local public hospital or other government doctor / physician 
Ø  Attach any extra document which you feel, it can support your application for securing admission. It can be curricular or extracurricular too.

Ø  According to rumors HSK 4, 5 or 6 is required for some Universities. Don’t worry about it rumours are everywhere and spread these kinds of news. It depends on Universities that, if the program is in Chinese then there are two possibilities.
1- You must have one year Chinese qualification 

2- You must give HSK certificate

Ø Most Universities provide 1 year Chinese Language course except for some Universities like Shanghai University.
Ø  Most Universities have admission fees and no or very fewer seats for Master candidates. University will charge admission fees but no chances of admission. Like BJUT, USTB, Ningbo etc. So be careful at the time of applying.
Ø  Most students think that CGPA does not matter. Each and everything matters. In addition, it was found that many other students had a high grade point average but no research was conducted.
