Recently I bumped into Mr Muhammad Yousaf’s intellectual collections surrounding helping international students with scholarships. Once again, thank you for that gesture.That said, I would also like to request for detailed information regarding the same chance of studying in China. There are just so much information, as some seems to be crap or scam and could not earn me any tangible information leading acquiring one opportunity to pursue studies in the great Republic of China.
