  1. Hello, when is the online application for Ms in international trade for Shanghai University going to be opened?
    I have paid the application fee and submitted my application forms but I can’t attach my receipt for the application fee. Moreover, when you check the website the information there is that the online application will be opened soon.
    Can you help me with exact date so that I don’t miss out?.

    • These days Chinese universities are not working because of Winter vacation holidays. So i would suggest you to try a phone call now to university and if they don’t answer then leave an email. University will re-open after February 5th. Then you can send your documents and tell them that you are looking for Shanghai government scholarship. You have to stay in touch with international office of Shanghai University.
