Making a Most Attractive Destination For Students

China is trying to do more in education export. Annouonced by the China Scholarship Council (CSC) on May 29th that China is to become the “most attractive destination” in the Asia-Pacific region for overseas students.

Statistics from the CSC show the number of foreigners studying in China hit 140,000 in 2005, including 40,000 from the Republic of Korea, 14,000 from Japan, and 8,000 from the United States. The total had risen by 32 percent from the figure of 1998.

Student exchages is seen as one of the most effective ways for educational impact which usually leads to higher intercutural awareness of the participants. Attracting more international students into one country not only helps to build mutual cultural understandings among young people, it also has significant economic implications. Higher Education export earnings are worth about £3.6 billion in UK out of its total worth of £45 of higher education institutions, and education is the fourth largest export industry in Australia in 2004.

Over the years, China has benefitted from sending students and researchers abroad. Undoubtedly it has contributed to its current economic growth and development. Therefore, China is going to fund more, despite the number of self-supporting students going abroad is ever increasing with the rising-up of the general living standards.

Meanwhile, the increasing popularity of Chinese language in recent years and a maturing service environment for foreign students has in fact lent more confidence to the country for making it a most attractive destination for education in the Asian and Pacific ragion.

To promote, practical enough and before other things, as an international student, you can get some cultural experiences at a discount.
