The UK is the top destination for Chinese students
04 June 2019
Chinese students are shunning US universities in favour of UK institutions as the trade war between Beijing and Washington escalates.
EIC Education found that the UK is now the most sought-after destination for Chinese students, with 20% of respondents picking the UK as their first choice, compared with 17% favouring the US.
Figures show that the number of Chinese students attending British universities and colleges was 106,000 in 2017-18. Home Office figures show that 100,057 Tier 4 study visas were issued to Chinese applicants in the year to March, an increase of 13%.
At the same time the US is tightening visa requirements for Chinese students, especially those studying science and technology.
