An 18-year-old young man has applied for a place at a university for women - because he thinks it will help him to find a girlfriend.

The teenager is through to the final round of screening at the China Women’s University in the Chinese capital city of Beijing.

Despite its name, the university accepts at least one man every year and the student, whose name has not been released, is hoping to be one of them.

The young man, who was not identified, from the city of Ningbo in eastern China's Zhejiang province, has been speaking openly about why he applied for a place.

"This school has many girls – if I can study here there won’t be a problem finding a companion," he says in a video, filmed by a student and posted online with the university’s permission.

He said the competition was tough – the university enrolled just one man last year – but he had passed the interview stage of the process.

However, the student admitted that his family had reservations about his plans.

"My father told me to be careful... he doesn’t want his son to change too much from being in an environment surrounded by women," he said.

The China Women’s University is run by the All-China Women’s Federation and takes 1,500 students every year – about one percent of them male.

Courses range from law, computer science, finance and business management to education and foreign languages.

A university spokeswoman said: "We have toilets for men in our buildings and in the library. The men’s dormitory is small... but their rooms are more spacious."

China has one of the world’s most skewed sex ratios because of a preference for boys that was exacerbated by its notorious one-child policy, which ended in 2015.

In some provinces, there are as many as 130 young boys for every 100 girls and it has been estimated that millions of men will be unable to find a wife in the coming decades.
