I'd love to read the actual regulation.
It used to be like this:
There were some students who studied Chinese language in China, non-degree, for a year or two. Some of them straight after high-school, some of them had studied Chinese at a university outside of China, but wanted to stay in China after the language course instead of going back to finish their degrees. In order to accommodate their demands, some universities used to offer the option to start their bachelor's in Chinese language and literature at year two or three and thus, technically speaking, obtain a BA in two or three years.
Here is an example. A student spent three years studying Chinese language at a university outside of China. Decided that she should go to China because her Chinese was not as good as it should be. Got a scholarship and then spent two years studying Chinese in China, a non-degree course. Became fluent in the language. Then realized that she does not really want to go back (to Italy or Korea or wherever she went to school originally) to finish her degree. Then tried to see if she can get some of her credits transferred and get a BA in Chinese language and literature from a Chinese university.
There must have been thousands of students like this, so universities have come up with certain regulations.
Not sure what is going to happen in the future. Maybe this is being phased out, maybe not; maybe it is only one university changing the regulations, maybe all of them. I have heard that it is no longer that easy to get the CSC scholarship to cover a non-degree language course because degree-seeking applicants are preferred nowadays. I am glad you talked to the school, seems like their website has not been updated, students can't see that things have changed. Still, not sure if more universities have changed their policy regarding this. One thing we know is that people who have failed to get the CSC scholarship have been explicitly told that students applying for a BA or MA are preferred over non-degree language programs. Still possible to do it, but if every country gets a certain quota, and there are many students going for full BAs, they will have higher chances of being awarded the scholarship than language students. Maybe things are going in this direction.
You are not in the target group, but if you dig deep enough, you might find a loophole.
What precisely are you interested in? Do you want to live in China? Study in China?
