Enrolled international students spend 12 months in residence at the Yenching Academy, with the possibility to extend for a second year. For students from China (including Hong Kong, Macao, and Taiwan), the program lasts 24 months.
Coursework is completed during the fall and spring semesters, and it is supplemented by additional study during the summer. Upon completion of their year in residence, students have up to one more year to finalize projects and defend their thesis. During this period, students in good academic standing may apply for a limited number of Teaching, Research, or Administrative Assistantships. In addition, Dean’s Research Grants will be awarded on a bi-annual basis to help fund selected research projects related to China Studies.
