British schools welcome Chinese students

    While the momentum of Chinese students going to study overseas keeps increasing, schools in Western countries are also reaping benefits by accepting these students.

    At an overseas study fair organized by Amber Education on Sunday, some British institutes expressed their appreciation for the positive influence brought about by Chinese students who studied in their country, in particular the internationalization of the classrooms both in the United Kingdom and China.

    “For a long time there were mainly Chinese students studying in the United Kingdom, but now U.K. students study and do research in China, and that’s a sign of success of their mutual relationship,” said William Leitch, a recruitment officer at University of Strathclyde Glasgow.

    Leitch said the changes started after more Chinese students began studying in the United Kingdom.

    He added that the most important things Chinese students applying to his school should consider are not necessarily good grades but being prepared to adjust to life in the country and greater integration with classmates.

    Other British institutes shared his opinion as well.

    Sarah Jamieson, a representative from the University of Reading, said there is strong interest in China because so many Chinese students have had a positive influence on U.K. students and other international students.

    Jamieson said her school offers full scholarships for non-Chinese students to enroll in programs at Renmin University and Peking University, and scholarships in conjunction with the China Scholarship Council and the Embassy of China are available to help universities fund students who want to get a master’s degree or Ph.D. in China.

    Statistics from Amber Education, a Hong Kong-based overseas study consultancy, showed that the number of students applying to British schools through the agency in 2015 increased 10 percent over 2014 and that the students are getting progressively younger.
