Studying in Asia - new trend

In recent years, education in Asian countries has been gaining more and more popular among foreign applicants. Moreover, Asian education enters the international education market, already gaining ground from the United States and Great Britain.

 

The benefits of the Asian Educational System

  • Firstly, the quality of higher education offered in countries such as China, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, and Malaysia plays an important role and the level of education is getting higher.
  • Secondly, in the era of globalization, most of us are trying to get an internationally recognized education and work experience in foreign companies. 
  • Thus, rapidly developing economically, and having a significant impact on the world economy, China, Japan, Singapore, etc., are becoming very, very attractive for foreign students. Third, the cost of studying in Asian universities is cheaper than in Europe or the USA.

 

For example, obtaining a Master's degree in China may cost you less than a similar diploma in a not-so-prestigious university in Berlin. Of course, education in Asian universities is much cheaper than in Western universities. 

Moreover, it is attractive that the governments of many countries provide grants and scholarships to the international market, which are much easier for foreign students to obtain than, for example, in America. 

 

Leading positions in the world list

In many ways, such a rapid leap in the field of education is justified not only by the state of the economy of these countries but also by the state programs for supporting higher education operating in these countries. Among Asian countries in the higher education market over the past 10 years, Japan and Hong Kong have retained the leading positions. 

However, in recent years, universities in Singapore and South Korea began to occupy the top lines of the rankings, displacing their neighbors. In recent years, business education has become more and more popular in Asia, and Asian universities deservedly oust Americans from the top lines of the ratings, taking leading positions. 

This is justified not only by competitive prices for education and accommodation but also by the increasing quality and prestige of obtaining such an education - many universities are actively attracting foreign specialists and researchers to develop the scientific and educational base of the University.

 

Internship and Scholarship

Besides, most Asian universities offer their students professional, often paid, internship programs with international companies. In addition, international students studying at Asian universities on higher education programs have working rights and the opportunity to earn up to 20 hours a week, which is not offered by all Western and European countries. It is also worth noting that many of the Asian Universities offer study programs in English, which is also important for foreigners who decide to study abroad.

Branches 

Moreover, many American, British and Australian Universities open their branches in many Asian countries and offer not only quality education in English, but also the possibility of obtaining a double degree and participation in exchange programs between countries. In addition to Singapore, China, Japan, and Korea, countries such as Taiwan and Thailand can also be of great interest to foreign students. 

 

Economics

These "economic Asian tigers", while not so widely represented in the educational market, and have not yet broken into the first hundred of the TOP world ratings, are already actively gaining recognition among global concerns and enterprises, offering employment to highly qualified specialists in the field of economics, finance, banking. business and business, from a number of its graduates. 

 

Student visa

Moreover, an important factor when choosing a country of study for many students is the question of the possibility of obtaining a study visa, as well as professional and career opportunities upon graduation. In this regard, Asian countries have simpler immigration rules and simplified immigration policies for foreign specialists.
