Are Chinese University Degrees Recognised Internationally?

At China Admissions we have a lot of students who ask how well degrees from China are recognised or valued around the world.

Of course its not possible to give one answer because the answer depends completely on each individual circumstance – the country you are from, the program and University you are studying at and what you plan to do with it and who you want to value it.

If you are planning to go back to your home country after graduation, I would advise you check with future employers about how much they would value the Master’s program so you can see if it is worth it.

From a future employers point of view, it is also the international experience in China that is increasingly valued. The fact that you are in China and understand what is happening in China and can speak some Chinese can be very valuable.

It also matters about other things you do when in China and things that you do outside the classroom, the people you meet, the network and perhaps internships and other experience.

Of course it is up to you to go out there and make the most of the opportunities and also about how you sell your experience when you talk about it for your job opportunities. Even if you do not use Chinese or China in your work straight away, the fact that you have gone to China, learnt a new language and lived in a new culture, shows that you have a number of positive qualities that are generally highly valued.

For programs such as MBBS you can normally find the list of programs that are approved in your country.
