Study in China: Top 10 Universities for International Students

written by Xuanchi Chen

Choosing a destination to study abroad in, either for a semester or the entire degree, can be an extremely daunting task. Mainland China is currently home to thousands of international students looking for an international education. Since the 1990s, China has been rapidly expanding its number of universities and higher education programs. This expansion runs parallel to the large economic growth that China continues to experience, making Chinese universities an attractive destination for international students. Thousands of students from around the world are going to China to experience the waking of the ‘sleeping dragon’ and the fast growth of the Chinese markets. All major cities in China have at least one university, and international students are often drawn to these metropolitan hubs.

In China, higher education is typically divided into three different categories: general, technical, and specialized universities and colleges. There are opportunities and locations for study in every field. In China you will find programs not only specializing in economics, business and the nation’s latest advancements in technology, but also in history, language, and cultural studies. It is not only the fast-paced urban life that makes China an attractive destination for international students, but also the ancient roots of Chinese history, culture and art.  Read more
