Application to ANU as a visiting student, postdoctoral fellow or scholar
To apply for CSC funding to attend ANU as a visiting student, postdoctoral fellow or scholar, you will first need to find an advisor to oversee your research at ANU. Please visit the ANU Researchers website or contact your proposed Research School or Institute to identify potential advisors. You should then email potential advisors directly to discuss your proposed research topic and confirm if they are willing to support your visit to ANU.
If your proposal is accepted, please discuss with your advisor if there is any internal application procedure necessary for you to secure a visiting position within their Research School or College. The Research School or College will also be able to arrange a formal letter of invitation from ANU for you, which must be submitted directly to CSC together with the application form.
Please note that as each College or Research School within ANU has their own procedure for selecting visiting students and researchers, you should allow enough time for potential researchers to review your proposal and for you to supply any other documents required. We recommend contacting potential advisors as early as possible, but at least 3 months in advance of the CSC application closing date.
Application to CSC: indicative deadline for 2021 visiting scholars, postdoctoral fellows and scholars: 20 March 2021
Please visit the China Scholarship Council website for up-to-date information on the visiting students, postdoctoral fellows and scholars program, application forms and relevant deadlines.
