The China Equitable Information Management Service (CEIMS) is an independent, non-governmental, non-profit organization funded by the Ameson Education and Cultural Exchange Foundation. Headquartered in Shanghai, CEIMS’s core mission is to provide a fair, transparent and trustworthy process for authenticating applications submitted by Chinese students.
CEIMS is used by: University of Cambridge, University of Bristol, University of Warwick, University of Auckland, Durham University, University of Edinburgh, Aston University, Royal Holloway University of London, University of Glasgow, University of Melbourne, and Nanyang Technological University.
Essentially, the services CEIMS provide are designed to help bridge the gap between Western university standards and Chinese cultural and educational policy in order to provide Western admissions officers with a clear understanding of a Chinese applicant's true quality. Beyond research and analysis, the primary service of CEIMS is a reliable, streamlined authentication process for documents submitted by Chinese students. Full membership benefits include:
1. All registered schools/educational organizations receive ten (10) document authentications. These may be used when members receive suspicious documents from a Chinese applicant, or when a more comprehensive gauge of the applicant's true value and particular achievements is necessary. Each additional document authentication carries an additional USD 20 charge per authentication. Once a member inside the CEIMS system, members have access to our on the ground support network, lending increased speed and flexibility to the admissions process.
2. CEIMS members are also provided the following information resources:
3. CEIMS members receive assistance disseminating information about their schools to tens of thousands of elite Chinese high school students, prime candidates for undergraduate study abroad. Ameson's Chinese web portals and newsletter services reach hundreds of Chinese high schools with total enrollment in the tens of thousands.
In order to provide a program of impeccable quality and efficiency, an annual membership fee of USD 260 is required.
