Prices & Packages

Wuhan, the sprawling capital of Central China’s Hubei province, is a commercial center divided by the Yangtze and Han rivers. The city contains many lakes and parks, including expansive, picturesque East Lake. Nearby, the Hubei Provincial Museum displays relics from the Warring States period, including the Marquis Yi of Zeng’s coffin and bronze musical bells from his 5th-century B.C. tomb.

Why

  • Top source country
  • 459,800 Chinese students went abroad in 2014 – an 11.1% growth in outbound mobility over the year before. In the Outline of China’s National Plan for Medium and Long-term Education Reform and Development (2010– 2020), the government announced its objective to develop initiatives to further stimulate Chinese students to go abroad for their studies.

  • Government support and funding
  • In the past two decades, the Chinese government has greatly facilitated studying abroad with various measures such as introducing a simplified procedure for obtaining a Chinese passport and by giving more freedom in the exchange and transfer of Chinese and foreign currencies. Studying abroad is actively promoted by government-sponsored financial support schemes. They are administered by the China Scholarship Council (CSC), which annually sponsors around 7,000 Chinese students.

  • Bilateral relations with leading markets
  • As part of the national strategy to encourage outgoing student mobility, the Chinese government has placed a strong focus on creating education links with other countries, which has resulted in national-level education agreements.
