Living in China as an International student

It is no hidden fact that Chinese students constitute the largest pool of international students globally. Be it management, science, engineering, or research, they are at the forefront of experiencing global education. Although the exodus is at a mass scale, yet China is growing in popularity with international students as a prospective destination for higher education. In 2014, close to 3 lakh, foreign students were studying in China, a number which the Chinese government is aiming to increase to five lakh by 2020. Deals of cooperation, such as the one recently struck with the US (aimed at getting 1 lakh students only from the US by 2020), make this target seem more feasible. However, the language, distance, and differences in culture continue to deter many who wish to pursue an education in China.
