Stu­dents say US still No 1 for study­ing abroad

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWSCAPSULE -

The US re­mains Chi­nese stu­dents’ top des­ti­na­tion for study­ing abroad de­spite a slight sag in pop­u­lar­ity, ac­cord­ing to a re­cent sur­vey.

Of 21,352 in­ter­vie­wees aged 15 to 36, 26.8 per­cent of those who plan to study abroad pre­fer the US down about 1.3 per­cent from last year’s sur­vey, ac­cord­ing to the an­nual re­port on trends in ed­u­ca­tion abroad by China stu­dent recruitment agency EIC Group.

“The main rea­son be­hind the small de­crease may be that the des­ti­na­tions of study­ing abroad are get­ting more di­verse,” said Jin Ran, chief mar­ket­ing of­fi­cer of EIC Group, which has put out the ed­u­ca­tion-abroad fore­cast for the past six years.

In spite of the US’s pop­u­lar­ity dip, Jin em­pha­sized that its lead­ing po­si­tion is still un­threat­ened.

“In gen­eral the US still takes the lead as the No 1 coun­try choice to study abroad for Chi­nese stu­dents. (Photo 4)
