Monday, 6 December 2010
With some of the best universities in the world located in the US, the number of Chinese students coming to United States to study are increasing.
According to a study released by the Institute of International Education, Chinese students studying in America increased by 30 percent. Surpassing India, China became the top sender of international students to American educational institutions with 127,628 students.
Elysia Purnell, a junior sport, arts and entertainment manager said "I'd like to see more Chinese students come here to study dance, for instance. "I think that would be a really good area to expand upon in terms of recruitment," Purnell said. "I think... maybe when recruiting, there isn't such a large emphasis placed on that."
Furthermore, China is the fasted growing economy in the world. Opportunities to widen knowledge are opened for anyone who wants to study overseas.
