Study in China
China, officially the People’s Republic of China (PRC), is a unitary sovereign state in East Asia and the world’s most populous country, with a population of around 1.404 billion. Since the introduction of economic reforms in 1978, China’s economy has been one of the world’s fastest-growing. As China has been investing greatly in education over the last years it is no wonder the number of international students is on the rise. To make studying in China even more attractive, the cost of living is significantly lower compared to many countries worldwide and except for a few universities, tuition fees are affordable. A study which analyzed the latest trend in studying abroad ranked India among the top countries sending students to China. Some universities are relatively better and some are not that good. Choosing right Universities is important
