The VBCI facilitates scholarships through the Confucius Institute.

Scholarships are offered at all levels, from beginner Chinese-language students to PhD researchers. Tours and scholarships are available to academic staff to take part in China-related conferences, and publish or translate academic work.

The in-China programs vary in length from a few days to full-year research placements.

Tours to China that the VBCI help to organise include:

  • China Tour (summer camp), a 14-day tour for VU students
  • Young leaders to China: Innovation & Entrepreneurship, a 14-day tour for young people with a business plan or start-up.
