Tuition per academic year in RMB

The current tuition rates of Chinese-medium programs for international students have remained unchanged for more than ten years since adjustments in 2001. XMU has devoted significant amounts of resources to building a faculty of international standing, launching a comprehensive range of academic programs with English as the medium of instruction, and upgrading its infrastructure. Thus, the University has adjusted its tuition rates according to the policy of the Ministry of Education and by taking into account the tuition rates of other higher-education institutions in China. The adjustments of the tuition fees also reflect inflation and the rising costs of academic programs for international students. International students enrolled from 2015 academic year and onwards will follow new tuition rates which are to come into effect in 2015.

The costs of studying at XMU (including tuition fees, accommodation fees and living expenses) are lower than most other comparable Chinese and overseas institutions. XMU offers a wide variety of scholarships to international students, including Chinese Government Scholarships, Confucius Institute Scholarships, Confucius China Studies Plan Fellowships, Fujian Provincial Government Scholarships, and Xiamen University Scholarships. Full scholarships cover tuition, accommodation, food, healthcare and insurance costs, while partial scholarships cover one or several items covered by full scholarships. Scholarships are awarded to approximately four hundred successful applicants each year.
