Why China?

Home to the world’s largest population, China’s international influence is growing due to its rapid economic growth.

As China continues to grow, the research environment in Chinese universities will play a key role in determining the country’s trajectory in being a successful, high-income economy. As a result, there has been an increase in focus around STEM research in institutions of higher learning.

China now boasts the largest number of laboratory scientists from any country, and its research and development spending exceeds that of the EU.[1] This increased investment in higher education and research has led to a proliferation of scientific publications. In 2018, Elsevier reported that China has overtaken the US as the world’s largest producer of scientific research articles by volume and that the country’s citation index leads in certain disciplines including materials science, chemistry and engineering.[2]

China’s determination to move from a production-based economy to an innovation-driven and knowledge-based economy has created many opportunities in higher education that are unique to anywhere else in the world.
