Asian nations attract more Chinese students
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.
