It has been regulated by the Ministry of Education of the People’s Republic of China that foreign students who enroll to study at Chinese universities should pass HSK Level 4 or above.
Learners who want to apply the Confucius Institute Scholarships should take the score reports of both HSK and HSKK. All test takers who took HSK/HSKK/YCT/BCT abroad are eligible to apply for the Chinese Test Summer Camp to experience Chinese culture and learn Chinese in a short period in China.
More and more foreign governments and multinational companies have recognized HSK, HSKK, BCT and other Chinese tests and have used them as criteria for recruitment, performance evaluation and promotion.
