Why international students study in China

The number of international students studying in China has risen by tenfold since 1995 (from 36,855 to 442,772) with 57% of the current number coming from other Asian countries. A study of international students in China found that reputation and cost are the most important issues when they choose to study in China. International students from Europe, the USA, and sub-Saharan African viewed reputation as less important to their decision. In an age where many young people express interest in learning to work with and across cultural difference, the authors of the study "found that the desire to better understand China and its culture was a relatively less important factor."
