What is it all about?
BAFTA Scholarship Programme in China is a new initiative that supports UK-China cross-cultural exchange by enabling talented Chinese and British nationals to study film, television, or games as an international student in the UK or China respectively.
Why should I go?
British citizens can apply for up to £10,000 for a course in China, and up to £10,000 for living expenses. The scholarship recipients will also be mentored by industry professionals, and have free access to BAFTA events.
Am I eligible?
We will consider applications from British citizens who wish to study a course in China that meets the following criteria:
1. A practical course in film, television or games, where the core studies relate to a craft eligible for BAFTA awards recognition.
2. No more than two years in length, including short courses.
3. Provides Chinese language training for non-fluent speakers, or is taught in English.
4. Taught at a Chinese institution (not an outpost of a foreign university) based in China.
