The government is keen to attract more international students, and to get a handle on the numbers of Chinese who want to study abroad.
In 2017, the Ministry of Education said there were more than 11 million international students living in China.
The country’s government has made an effort to recruit international students in an effort not to overspend on foreign students.
China has a strong international student population, but the government has been working to promote the country’s international image.
Chinese companies are looking for international talent and a new generation of young people, and some are even going to college in other countries, like the US, Canada, and the UK.
