U.A.E Becomes a Magnet for Chinese Students
A student named Li Wentao was contemplating on where he wanted to study abroad after graduating from a public school in China. Unlike other students who usually would choose the United States, Britain or Australia he chose to join a group of students who were applying to the United Arab Emirates. Being a computer science major Li decided to go to the University of Wollongong which is a university that is based off of the New South Wales state in Australia. Universities in Dubai are trying to find students like Li by sending some of the U.A.E recruitment teams to China. in 2010 there were 3.6 million students in China who were studying outside of the home and the U.A.E was able to recruit 17% of them! The U.A.E hopes to recruit more Chinese students here later in the future.
I think this is a great opportunity that students should really look into. If you have hopes of studying abroad then every student should know about the U.A.E it serves a great purpose to those who are willing to do something different with their education. However even though the Chinese students are the main subject in the article Britain is also trying to recruit more international students into their university programs as well. There are many opportunities out there when it comes to education and it's great that the U.A.E decided to focus on China with its big population and students in demand of a higher education. Overall this is a great chance for educational advances for students who are wanting to study abroad and its all starting with China.
