The Chinese government is making efforts to increase the overall level of programs, reorganize the system of national academic education in general and bring studies in TOP-100 best universities in the country in full compliance with international standards, and ensure high-quality preparation for a university in China.
Wishing to take one of the leading positions in the world market of academic education in the near future not only by the criterion of the number of students, but also by the criterion of the quality and competitiveness of the acquired knowledge and skills of graduates, China at the federal level draws attention to the following components of the learning process:
The coordinated and focused efforts of the authorities are bearing fruit: in 2018, 21 universities managed to enter the list of TOP-500 in the world (data published by the authoritative international ranking of universities QS World University Rankings).
Education at TOP universities in China, as well as preparation for a university in China, can be conducted in English and in Chinese. Both languages are international and accepted around the world for communication in business circles. In fact, knowing both English and Chinese, one can be 100% sure of further employment in the field of management in any economic segment - both in Asian countries and in the Western world.
Due to growing power of the Chinese economy, European educational institutions open their branches there. As part of their activities, they hold professional exhibitions, where for the best students there is a chance to get an internship in one of the European companies with a further prospect of entering the permanent staff.
One of the key advantages of higher education in China is its cost.
Although China is a promising, rapidly developing country, the average price for an academic degree is many times lower than if an applicant wanted to graduate from a bachelor's, master's or doctoral program in the same specialty in Europe or North America. And at the same time, the relatively affordable cost of programs does not necessarily mean the worst quality of graduate studying - this is eloquently evidenced by the fact that Chinese universities annually enter the various international ratings of educational institutions.
Excellent command of the Chinese language is an indirect but significant advantage of education in China. Even if you master the programs of banking, business management or go to study at a medical university - one way or another, and mastery of the state language of the republic. Even in the case of teaching in English (which is found, but not common), life and culture of the country will force and help to learn the language of hieroglyphs. Chinese remains one of the 6 official languages of the UN and a business mediator in Asia.
The government is deliberately working to improve the status of diplomas received in China: as part of this task, an agreement has been signed on the mutual recognition of academic degrees with 64 countries of the world. So, having graduated from one of the Chinese universities, you can become a recognized specialist far beyond the borders of the republic itself.
Education in TOP-3 elite universities in China can cost about $90.000 per year: these figures are due to the exceptionally rich infrastructure and outstanding research work within the institutions. At the same time, prices in other educational institutions of TOP-10 prestigious universities in the country are several times lower. The table below shows the comparative amount required to pay for studies at 7 rating universities.

When preparing for university, you should be aware that not always mandatory costs are directly included in tuition fees. This is possible if we are talking about private closed colleges, where full board is provided, but if other forms of educational institutions are preferred, then you need to remember that for foreign students, there are expenses:
On average, one year of living and studying in China will cost 15.000$ -17.000$ (the cost of training itself is about 5 thousand in the case of this example).
