Studying abroad in the US may give a different perspective to Chinese students to grow mentally, socially and professionally, and return to China with a different perspective of the world.
Colleges and universities in the US use innovative teaching methods in the classroom including discussion-based participatory learning, small group work, and experiential learning techniques to ensure that students learn in a holistic way. The American higher education system has many of the best schools in the world and prides itself on a diverse student population that includes many international students, a significant percentage of which are from China. Outside of the classroom, America colleges and universities offer a welcoming community for international students and meaningful extra-curricular opportunities.
Education in the US provides students with skills that they can market and utilize after they graduate and enter the workforce. Multinational companies as well as emerging start-ups look for graduates educated abroad because of the hard skills they can bring to the job and also soft skills like creative approaches to professional growth and teamwork.
Join AmCham China for a classroom discussion on studying abroad in the US:
Education exchange is an under-celebrated driving force that has become a critical pillar of US-China bilateral relations. The two countries have a rich history of cooperation to promote student exchanges dating back to the late Qing Dynasty. In our contemporary history of educational exchanges, Chinese students remain one of the largest populations in US colleges and universities, while on the ground in China new joint-programs are continually being established between US and Chinese universities. In 2015, more than 300,000 Chinese post-secondary students were enrolled in US colleges, while approximately 25,000 American students studied in China. What's more, Chinese students studying English outnumber their American counterparts studying Mandarin by 600 times.
While we are looking at such a large scale of education ties, education is inevitably a care for and growth experience of individuals. Through today's discussion, we would like to have an opportunity to exchange views on the mission of higher education and reinforce the responsibilities we as stakeholders can play.
