Asian na­tions at­tract more Chi­nese stu­dents

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

Some of China’s re­gional neigh­bors, in­clud­ing Sin­ga­pore and Ja­pan, are be­com­ing pop­u­lar choices for Chi­nese choos­ing to study abroad, ac­cord­ing to a sur­vey.

The sur­vey by a com­pany that pro­vides ser­vices for over­seas stud­ies ques­tioned nearly 3,000 Chi­nese stu­dents plan­ning to study over­seas and found fewer were will­ing to study in the US, the UK, Aus­tralia and Canada when com­pared with 2015.

The sur­vey also found that choos­ing the right ma­jor is the top con­sid­er­a­tion for Chi­nese stu­dents and their par­ents when se­lect­ing an over­seas ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tion. The rank­ing of the in­sti­tu­tion is the sec­ond most im­por­tant fac­tor they con­sider, while a year ago, in­sti­tu­tions’ rank­ings were the main con­cern.
