Education, in China, has always been paid utmost importance by the Chinese government, as much as it is regarded essential among individuals. In fact, it has been observed the general public spends 4.04% of the total GDP of the country on education, with the total spending on tertiary education, being 1.2 trillion yuan each year.
With an aim to increase the number of skilled workforces to increase the nation’s economic development, the government works exclusively for the improvement in its tertiary education sector, which attracts a great number of university enrollees each year, and an average annual number of graduates– 7.6 million, from public universities alone.
And this increase in the graduating population does not, in any case, affect the quality of education being provided in the Chinese institutions.
As a matter of fact, China was ranked as the country with the 2nd highest number of top universities in the world in a number of press releases and international rankings such as Shanghai Ranking’s ARUW and the US News in 2021.
And the facts don’t stop here. The country facilitates more than 600,000 students who wish to pursue their higher education overseas on an annual basis.
