Xiamen University scholarships

Xiamen University is a strategic partner of Cardiff University and the Chinese partner university of Cardiff Confucius Institute.

Cardiff Confucius Institute regularly organises study camps at Xiamen University (XMU) for its students. The study camp is usually two weeks in duration and offers students the chance to improve their Chinese language skills, explore China, and experience campus life at a Chinese University.

Students are required to cover the costs of their visa and return international air fare. Once in China, all expenses are covered by XMU and the Confucius Institute. Please contact us for information about upcoming trips and how to get involved.
