Sorry you might need to email the uni directly. Different universities have different admission policies. However, there's one thing they are in common: Chinese universities are in need of international students for ranking up (cultural diversity and international category). Speaking of the cost, you shouldn't worry much about it. Top universities and colleges are all government funded so the tuition fee is almost free. For example, Beijing Film Academy which is the 1st in animation, costs 8000 RMB a year, which is 1200 USD. And the living expenses are also low due to conversion in currencies. Typical living expenses for a student in large cities like Beijing or Shanghai is 2000-3000 RMB a month if you live in the uni's dormitory. Dormitory is a feature in China though, full of communist soviet style designs. Students love and hate the style at the same time.
