The Education System in the China

Higher education in China started with the establishment of the country’s first universities in 1896. Until the founding of the People’s Republic of China in 1949, Chinese higher education developed largely according to the Western university model. After this breaking point in Chinese history, Chinese education cut off links to the Western world and tuned toward a university model more like that of the former Soviet Union. This meant a reconstruction of higher education during the early 1950’s. During this time, larger and more comprehensive universities were broken up into smaller specialized institutions such as universities of engineering, agricultural colleges, medical colleges and railway institutes.
After the reorganization of the 1950’s, Chinese universities have since the 1990’s returned toward a more western model with larger schools and a more general education. Despite this ongoing change, it is still common, with very high specialization within the Chinese educational system.

State education in China

The Chinese educational system is based on an elite selection structure, where the scores of the national university entrance examination decides your fate (at least in the state system). The percentage of China’s college-age population in higher education has increased from 1.4% in 1978 to roughly 20% in 2005. Every year 450,000 engineering students graduate from college, 50,000 graduate with masters degrees, and 8,000 graduate with Ph.Ds.

Private education in China

Rich families can of course get rid of the strict bureaucracy of the state education system. Private education providers in China are generally run as profit organizations rather than academic establishments though sometimes, you can also get a very impressive quality of education through these alternative sources. Recently, British universities such as Liverpool and Nottingham has opened Asian affiliate campuses in China for attracting the “riches with the brains”.

Foreign students in China

Foreign students is a growing group of students in China. China is becoming the fifth largest country in the world for hosting incoming students. More than 200 universities national wide are authorized with the right to enroll foreign international students. Currently, there are more than a quarter of a million international students studying in China. And this number is annually growing by 30 percent.
So education as an export service will also be put on the priority list of both the Chinese government and educational providers. Admissions for foreign students are usually a much easier process than for domestic students, even for the Chinese ‘ivy league’ universities such as Tsinghua University and Beijing University. Generally one has to have a certain of Chinese language competence before being admitted to the regular academic programs. But a growing number of Chinese educational institutions are starting to offer programs that are entirely taught in English.

There are more than 3000 Universities/Colleges in the USA. Please make sure you go to an accredited College or University. The goal of accreditation is to ensure that education provided by institutions meets minimum acceptable level of quality. More than a million students enrolled in the US for higher education in 2015/2016 (that represents around 5% of total students enrolled in higher education in the US).

International students can receive education with medium of instruction in English.

After the government has adjusted the visa policy for foreign nationals, international students are now allowed to work part-time or take on internships while they are studying in China.

  • China is a unified multi-ethnic country jointly created by the people of all 56 ethnic groups. In the long course of historical evolution people of all 56 ethnic groups in China have maintained close contacts, developed interdependently, communicated and fused with one another, and stood together through weal and woe, forming today's unified multi-ethnic Chinese nation, and promoting the development of the nation and social progress.

    Another big reason why students choose to come to Canada is personal safety. Studying abroad can be scary, especially if you’re leaving your friends and family behind. The Institute for Economics & Peace ranked Canada as the 8th most peaceful country in the world in 2016. Unlike most other countries, Canada is pretty isolated in terms of location. It’s protected on three sides by oceans, and only shares a border with the United States. That distance provides a bit of a buffer from most international conflicts.

    Since the founding of the People's Republic of China in 1949, following the guideline of unity among all ethnic groups for common prosperity and drawing on China's historical experience and the useful practices of other countries, always with a view to China's actual situation, the Communist Party of China (CPC) and the Chinese government have carved out a path for the successful solution to ethnic issues with Chinese characteristics, exercised the ethnic policy featuring equality, unity, regional ethnic autonomy, and common prosperity for all ethnic groups, thus forming a relatively complete ethnic policy system.
