6 Best Student Experiences in China

International students flock China every year for a reason Find out how students find China and why they love it here!

1. Memon Abdul G. | Pakistan | Tsinghua University

“If I look back in 2014 when I first visited China, it was a completely new experience, a big hurdle was communication. The second was food and then navigation. After a few weeks, China became a second home to me. 

The hospitality, care, and help of Chinese brothers and sisters helped me a lot in China. I was studying at Tsinghua University in Beijing. Everywhere we visited, I always heard praise and respect by people around China. I  would suggest all expats experience China at least once.”

2. Nicole S. | Germany | University of International Business and Economics

“Together with my colleagues from Germany, we organized an Integration Weekend for the newly arrived students from our partner university in Germany.

In total, we were 30 people travelling on a bus to a beautiful village 2 hours away from Beijing. We played games and enjoyed the refreshing air next to a lake and river. It was lots of fun! Will never forget it!”

Just come and explore China, and you will never regret, it’s definitely worth to visit!”
