The Wing Yip Scholarships fund three students from China each year to come to Churchill College to read for a one-year MPhil degree at the University of Cambridge. The scholarship covers the University Composition and College fees for a one-year MPhil degree. They do not cover maintenance costs.
Current postgraduate students (or exceptionally, outstanding final year undergraduate students) of Peking University and Tsinghua University (only) are eligible for the Wing Yip Scholarship. The Scholarship is advertised in the two universities, who will use their own selection process to choose 5–6 candidates for each Scholarship.
The students selected will be of the highest quality intellectually and also proficient in spoken and written English, since that is the medium in which they will be taught and examined at Cambridge. They should meet the University's requirement for English as a foreign language.
Once selected by their home universities the candidates should then apply to the University of Cambridge for admission to a one-year MPhil degree course, following the instructions detailed on the University website. The University of Cambridge websitecontains a great deal of information about postgraduate studies at Cambridge, including a list of all the courses available, and instructions for referees. The University will decide whether a student can be admitted.
Section A(4) of the Application Form asks candidates to list two colleges in order of preference. Candidates should list Churchill as their first college of choice. In Section B, applicants should name any other scholarship they wish to apply for.
The final selection of scholars is made by Churchill College after students have been accepted for admission by the University of Cambridge. Students accepted for admission by the University but who are not accepted by Churchill College for the Wing Yip Scholarship will be considered for other scholarships by the Cambridge Trust. Students may also fund themselves if able to do so.
