Some students ask the difference between apply through CUCAS and apply to the university directly. It is a good question and we give the reply as below:

First of all, it is the same that you apply through CUCAS with you apply to the Chinese university directly, because CUCAS is officially authorized by Chinese universities to provide the online application service to students. So if you find the program on CUCAS, you can complete the application on CUCAS and submit the application to the university.

Secondly, based on our experience, you normally will encounter troubles when applying directly to the university, such as:

  1. Get no reply from the university. Having questions about the program or the university before you make application? You are freely to contact the university indeed. But you will find that you won’t get reply by e-mail. And there seems nobody will pick your call in English.
  2. Tracking progress is really hard. There are lots of students choose to apply directly to the university. The fact is that you are alone and you will have trouble to track progress.
  3. Nobody cares about your arrival. You will have troubles in dormitory booking, airport pick-up and registration procedure.

CUCAS provide one stop service which is much better than your direct application to the university.
