Studying and Living in China
China isn’t just pouring money into scholarships; it’s also investing heavily in developing its higher education system. Key initiatives include Project 211, which has the aim of developing 100 Chinese universities to world-class standard, and Project 985 – which has resulted in the creation of the elite ‘C9’ group of universities. Studying in China also held the attraction of being at the heart of a ‘booming’ society and witnessing at first hand the many changes taking place here.
The cost of living in China is not quite as cheap as it used to be. But tuition fees are relatively low, around US$3,500 per year in Beijing. And the cost of living in Shanghai, China’s most expensive city, is estimated to be roughly half that of New York. With accommodation costing between US$200 and US$300 per month (depending on the city), and transport a handful of small change, you’ll be spared the financial turmoil of students elsewhere.
Major languages in China include Cantonese, Hokkien and of course Mandarin (also known as Putonghua) – But many universities in China offer courses taught in English, and you’ll also find that many Chinese people speak English. If you choose to study in China in English, you may need to submit the results of a test of English proficiency such as IELTS or TOEFL.
