Over the last three years, the number of Chinese students applying to universities in the U.S. has increased by 75 percent to 275,000, according to the Yale University publication, “China Hands”. Although the number is impressive, high-cost American tuition has shut the door for families that cannot afford the expense. Now Chinese students have another way to enjoy the benefits of a foreign education, at less cost. CCTV’s Lin Yijing reported this story.

More details:

  • Joint universities organized by Chinese and American educators are becoming increasingly popular.
  • NYU Shanghai has now enrolled 570 undergraduate students, half from China and half from other countries. Admission policies are a mix of Chinese and U.S. procedures.
  • Duke University has also opened a joint college in Jiangsu, working with Wuhan University. While the joint universities are popular, experts say they are supplements within China’s education market, and will not affect the increasing number of Chinese students going to the United States.
