A recent report issued by The Guardian, a British daily newspaper, has stressed that China is making itself more attractive to international students and also increasing number of Chinese students are able to study abroad through joint international projects, in spite of the recent growing worries on China's economic slowdown.

The report, written by Rahul Choudaha, Senior director of strategic development of World Education Services based in New York, said the Chinese Ministry of Education launched a study in China in 2010, aiming to attract 500,000 international students by 2020.

The statistic data shows that almost 380,000 international students from more than 200 countries were studying in China in 2014. More favorable policies, like bilateral partnerships with other countries, easier access to the job market for international students, make China an attractive destination for international students, according to the report.

In the meantime, the Guardian said given the size and scale of the wealthy classes in China, the demand for high-school and undergraduate education abroad is likely to remain strong. In 2014, 1.7 million Chinese students were enrolled in institutions around the World. The joint international projects also give Chinese students easier access to study aboard. In 2014, around 600 Chinese universities were partnering with foreign institutions to offer more than 1,100 joint programmes.

New initiatives, such as partnerships along the Silk Road, are also to generate further opportunities for engagement with China, the newspaper added.
