Application process

Step one

During your sophomore year at DUFE, enrol to take an International English Language Testing System (IELTS) exam and obtain an overall IELTS score of 6.5 with 6.0 in every element.


Complete the 18 English-language modules with a 70 per cent minimum mark in each module (this option only permits entry at SII-DUFE; to transfer to Surrey you must take the IELTS).

Step two

Complete your sophomore year at DUFE with an average score of 70 per cent in your modules, with no failures.

Step three

Complete an online application form, as advised by the SII-DUFE Registry Office, nominating where you would like to study your dual degree programme. You will have three options:

  1. Study the two years at SII-DUFE in China with the University of Surrey’s teachers
  2. Complete one year at SII-DUFE in China and then transfer to the University of Surrey in the UK for your final year
  3. Transfer directly from SII-DUFE in China to the University of Surrey in the UK for your final two years
