You can apply for student X type for studying in China. You need to prepare the relevant documents including your passport and its copy, the application form, a passport-style photo, admission letter and JW form from the school as well as others. Just for reference.

Gordon, she needs to provide 2 passport-sized color photos, her passport and copy of its data page, a completed application form, proof of her financial support, accommodation arrangement, travel insurance, and invitation letter from you, as well as your marriage certificate, and other documents required by the consular officers.
As for other relevant information, you are advised to contact with the embassy of Ireland in China to inquire. Tel: 0086-10-65322691

Adding pages to my current passport?
I have no pages left in my current passport, which is still valid until 2017. I live in Wuhan and would like to know how I can apply for additional pages. This would be the first time doing so.

Dean, as many countries do not add pages to passport now, I'm not sure whether it is the same case in your country. You need to first confirm this with the embassy in Beijing. The contact information is as follows:

Telephone: (+86 10) 8531 6200
Fax: (+86 10) 6532 6857
