1. One of the largest emerging economies ensures you abundant job opportunities.
Thanks to the economic growth, the opportunities for foreigners who want to work in China have increased considerably in the last few years. In 1996, there were 180,000 foreign workers registered in China and the number is rapidly growing.
Teaching English is one of the main job areas for foreigners in China, while there is also a growing demand for foreign experts in sales, engineering and management, etc. The current rise of China has made it very clear that people who can speak Chinese and have firsthand experience of living in China are going to have a great advantage in terms of employment.
2. Diversified cultures widen your horizon.
The Culture of China is one of the world's oldest and most complex. You'll run into unique customs as you travel to different parts of China. Besides, everyday life, believe it or not, will be just as new and fulfilling. Living and interacting with local Chinese and immersing yourself in Chinese society will provide you with a new way of visualizing the world and give you the kind of insight that just doesn't come from textbooks.
3. Cheap living expense reduces your cost.
Although prices in China are rising, the cost of living here is still favorable compares to most industrialized countries. You will be amazed by how comfortably you can live and how strong your purchasing power is. You can afford a lifestyle you are unlikely to enjoy at home: get a housekeeper, travel every month, and enjoy frequent restaurant meals, massages, and nights on the town. Even wear tailor-made clothes!
4. Scholarships are provided to encourage you to do better.
In order to strengthen mutual understanding and friendship between the Chinese people and people from all over the world, and to develop cooperation and exchanges in fields of politics, economy, culture, education and trade between China and other countries, Chinese government has set up a series of scholarship schemes to sponsor international students to undertake studies and researches in Chinese institutions of higher education.
International students under Chinese Government Scholarship Programs will be allocated in Chinese institutions of higher education designated by the Ministry of Education of China. Various disciplines in science, technology, agriculture, medicine, economics, law, management, education, history, liberal arts and philosophy are available to international students in these institutions.
5. Vibrant campus life will be enjoyed with students from around the world.
There are some noticeable aspects of campus life in China's universities. Almost all institutions provide food and boarding for students on campus, and consequently a typical student enrolled in a university lives in a dormitory room which she/he shares with from 1 to 7 people, and eats in the dining halls on campus.
The closeness of students as a result of their living environment—especially crowded dormitories and dining halls—has become the hotbed for the flourishing of entertainment culture as well as student organizations of all sorts on China's university campuses. Compared with former generations of university students in mainland China, students nowadays enjoy great freedom and diversity of activities both within and outside their campuses.
