One out of 10 SZU students studies overseas after graduation

    An increasing number of students with bachelor’s degrees from Shenzhen University chose to study abroad after graduation in 2015, according to data released by the university last week.

    The official statistics show that 5,707 students graduated from Shenzhen University in 2015 and 620 of them applied to further their studies in countries or areas outside of the Chinese mainland, representing 10.86 percent of graduate students.

    Fewer students chose to join in graduate programs in China, as the data shows that less than 5 percent of the students are attending Chinese universities for master’s degrees. It usually takes three years to finish a master’s degree in China while the study period is only one or two years in other areas and countries.

    The data only showed students who have already applied or received offers from their targeted universities around the world upon graduation, but many started their search while only in their second or third year as an undergraduate.

    Ou Jiaming is an English major with a minor in marketing from the university. Though there is still one year to go before he graduates in 2017, he already started preparing for a language proficiency test when he was a sophomore.

    “I plan to attend graduate school in the U.K. and major in marketing, which is related to my current minor,” said Ou.

    Another junior student named Huang Run, whose major is advertising design, is also planning to study abroad after graduation. She intends to study in the United States or Hong Kong and will be taking her first IELTS exam soon.

    “I want to keep my major the same when I enter into a graduate program, but I would like to explore more in this field,” said Huang.

    Among all the study destinations, as in previous years, many Shenzhen students still favor the United States, Britain, Australia, Canada and Hong Kong.

    Chen Ya, also an English major from the Foreign Languages School, is aiming high for her master’s degree. She wants to study new media. She is currently traveling around the United States with her mother and has already visited several universities in California. Though Chen has already received high scores on IELTS and TOEFL exams, she is not satisfied. “I got a 105 on my first TOEFL, but my goal is 115, so I’m still to prepare better for it,” said Chen.
