Education for expats: China

Flag of China

Cooperation of universities with other countries is important for the development of international business, improvement of relations with other countries, and the popularization of Chinese culture.

Learning process in China

Unlike Chinese students, foreign students live in more comfortable conditions. On the campus of any major university, there are separate dormitories for students from other countries. Usually, they are newer, equipped with all the necessary equipment, and the rooms in them are designed for fewer people.

But at the same time, do not forget that while studying, foreign students have no privileges. Iron discipline and high demands are the same for everyone. Chinese teachers do not give indulgences to lazy students, and the students themselves treat such fellow students with incomprehension. Also, for poor performance or absenteeism without a good reason, they can be expelled.

Every year, Chinese universities are gaining leading positions in the world rankings of educational institutions. This is facilitated by government support, and an innovative approach, and international experience in the exchange of knowledge of universities in the Middle Kingdom.

Features of education in China

The concept is for each student to become a significant person in society and achieve all the best in life. Therefore, from childhood, every citizen of the PRC knows what an intensive study of the material is, can steadfastly endure nine lessons every day, and spends free time studying books in the library.

And all this is accompanied by iron discipline: for 12 passes, the student will be expelled, for drinking alcohol within the walls of an educational institution – expulsion with a reprimand and significant difficulties when entering other schools.

Quiet hours exist in schools due to the high workload and iron discipline. After lunch, students have 60-80 minutes to rest and recover. At the same time, before going on vacation, children study the exact sciences, and after a quiet hour, they engage in creativity.

The education system in China

The modern Chinese education system is familiar to any European and differs little from what we are used to. From three to six years old, children receive preschool education in kindergartens. At this age, accustoming to strict discipline begins.

The child spends the next six years in primary school. There he receives basic knowledge about the world and society and for the first time tries himself as a worker.

Another three years are spent in secondary school. At this stage, children delve into exact sciences, study politics, computer science, and foreign languages. After graduating from high school, students are considered savvy enough not to go to high school, but to get a secondary vocational education and go to work.

The last three years of school are high school. There, children are being prepared for university.

Leading Chinese Universities

More than fifty universities in China are ranked among the top 500 universities in the world. The ranking is updated every year and includes the most innovative, modern, and influential universities from around the world.

Two Chinese universities located in Beijing consistently rank in the top few tens of the world rankings. This once again shows how highly the education received in China is on the world stage.

The most authoritative institutions of higher education in China formed a separate group and received the name “League C9”. This association is comparable to the American Ivy League or the British Russell alliance. In addition to the credibility and high rating, all research and technical development at these universities is funded by the state.

The purpose of the league was to pool scientific resources and an agreement to support the high level of national education. Accordingly, any of the nine universities in the group can offer the best conditions for studying in China.

The C9 League includes Peking University, Shanghai Transport University, Fudan University, Harbin Polytechnic University, Nanjing University, Tsinghua University, China Science and Technology University, Zhejiang University, and Xi’an Transport University.

There are hundreds of universities for applicants wishing to obtain a higher education or a scientific degree in China. They all have different specializations and can provide different opportunities. But at the same time, it will be of the same quality both in big cities and federal universities and in small budgetary universities located in the provinces.
