China Scholarship Council visiting PhD Students

 

Since 2016 GERC has played host to a number of visiting Chinese PhD students as part of the China Scholarship Council (CSC) Scheme. The CSC provides funding for each student to undertake one year of research at an international university. Students are assigned a supervisor within GERC in addition to their main supervisor at their home institution in China.
