Choosing a University after High School in China: Top Choices

When it comes to deciding your future or even your kids’ future, you know that choosing the right school is the most important. Most likely, the first University which comes to your mind is probably situated somewhere in America or England. It’s indeed a pretty common perspective: the best education is in USA and UK. But only because something has been good there for a long time, doesn’t mean other places don’t have the equivalent. Despite China claiming itself to be a developing country, it has been catching up with the most developed countries in every possible way. Education is not an exclusion.

sbcThere are plenty of great Chinese Universities. Many people have realized that already and have chosen China to do their BA, MA or PhD. Apart from good Universities, China has lots of international schools which feel just like schools abroad. Therefore, expats, who chose China to be their second home, don’t have to worry about sending their children to a school with completely different environment.

However, the worrying comes when the children are about to graduate from high school and choose a University.

You may think that your children have to go to USA or UK to get a good degree. Or, perhaps, you worry that Chinese Universities are not as international as Universities abroad.

However, all those assumptions are based on old stereotypes. The fact is that Chinese Universities are just as great. They offer multiple majors in Chinese and English languages, their teaching methods are approved by international standards. In addition to this, Universities in China have the best of two worlds: Chinese culture, the fame of the best Universities in China and international quality of education.

Your children do not have to leave China in order to be able to get a good education. You can do it all within China, you just need to know what University to choose.

When you think of University and China in one sentence, naturally, you think of Tsinghua and Peking Universities. It is an obvious choice, as both of them are famous worldwide. But if you are after a more international institution, then perhaps there are better choices. After all, Peking and Tsinghua Universities’ focus is on introducing Chinese culture and history to foreigners.

We have a list of Top Chinese Universities which are focused on creating a multicultural environment for their students:
