Rise in Chinese global schools

International Edu News

A new report from British research firm ISC Research has highlighted the growth of ‘an international style of education’ in China, and the steep rise in Chinese children joining immigrant communities in the new schools. Tier One cities such as Shanghai and Beijing lead the march on international schools, though smaller cities like Jiangsu and Zhejiang are starting to appear on the map in recent years. 

Private education expenditure has risen among Chinese families, as a result of a growth in prosperity. A Chinese curriculum, integrated with some international modules to prepare children for global higher education is exactly what many parents desire, the report explained.Private international schools have recently started to employ in-house study abroad counsellors (similar to the US-based model), where the counsellor is an individual advisor to a student and is responsible for customised pathway of the student from/throughout school towards university. This is paid for by schools and parents.
