Beijing, the capital city of the People’s Republic of China, is the country’s center of politics, economy, culture, education, science and technology. With rich cultural heritage, it is a fast-growing, dynamic metropolis and also one of the four great ancient capitals of China. Whilst today it boasts of modern high-rise buildings, shopping centres and vast international hotels, Beijing has served as the political, cultural and diplomatic centre of the country for centuries. Among the contemporary scenery, you could also find some of the most visited attractions in the world such as the Great Wall, the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square.



    • 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.
