China Outbound Student Numbers at Record High

International Edu News

China: China’s outbound student numbers have been steadily rising, with the Chinese Ministry of Education recording a total of 608,400 students studying abroad in 2017. This is the first time the number has topped the 600,000 mark, an increase of 11.7% on the 2016 figures. The number of ‘sea turtles’, or students returning to China after studying abroad, also increased in 2017, up by 11.9% to 480,900. 

This brings the number of Chinese students who studied abroad and returned home to 80%, which is the same as the 2016 figure. In 2017, there were 541,300 students studying abroad at their own expense, accounting for 88.97% of the total, while 31,200 students were abroad on state support.
