To Prospective Students

I have received many emails about the Ph.D. applications and internships, thus creating this page that provides FAQs for prospective students.

Do you still admit new Ph.D. students? What is the typical process?

  • I do have 2 openings per year for the Ph.D. program.
  • Qualifications
    1. You might be eligible if you are a junior and top student in your class. The application is often due in September. I highly recommend you apply for the summer school at PKU to accelerate this process.
    2. If you are a student with an MS degree or about to graduate with an MS degree, received either in China or overseas, you are eligible. The application is often due in December. Your degree must be notarized if you received your MS overseas or are about to receive it overseas.
  • Please attach a research statement about your research plan (in English, preferable in pdf produced by LaTex) when you email me.
