Scholarship took him from China to doctorate in Uppsala


Yan Shao recently completed his PhD studies in Computational Linguistics at the Department of Linguistics and Philology.

Yan Shao was one of the first Chinese students to receive Anders Wall’s scholarship for a Master’s degree at Uppsala University. Back then he knew almost nothing about Sweden. Six years later, he has completed his doctorate and regards Uppsala as his second home.

The Anders Wall scholarship is awarded to students from China for undergraduate and graduate education at Uppsala University and covers the tuition fee for a program of 1–3 years.
