Is it hard to live in China for an international student?

You will face some high level of expenses in China, as it is one of the world's fastest-growing economies. But the good news is that whatever you spend in Mainland China will be around the half you would pay in the countries like the USA and Canada. 

As mentioned above, Chinese Government scholarships are a good idea to apply before choosing a certain university or program. The scholarships can cover all the expenses and free you of those issues in advance. 

Otherwise, expect to spend around 200-300$ on accommodation each month, and around 2.000-4.000$ on tuition fees.

Also, depending on the study program's choice, you might or might not spend additional money on the CUCAS, China's University, and College Admission System. That's the unified approach to apply to Chinese universities for international students. In some cases, you can skip the CUCAS case and apply directly to the university.
