7 Reasons Why Cambodian Students Should Study in China

China has developed rapidly nowadays and becomes the world’s second-largest economy in the world. There is no doubt that this country is also one of the great destinations to study. Here are seven reasons why Cambodian students should study in China.

Many Cambodian students have a dream to pursue their studies abroad. It is very common that students think of far-flung countries. Most students focus on highly developed countries such as the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia as the destination to continue their overseas education, it is very likely to ignore China, one of the best quality destinations for students worldwide.   

Quality of Education and World Recognition 

China invests heavily in the education sector and its quality of education is improving rapidly. Though there were only six Chinese universities in Times Higher Education’s World University Rankings in 2011, there were 37 in 2015-2016. This number is more than either Canada or Australia. Research and Development is also one of the advanced areas with more scientific papers published by Chinese scholars than those of American scholars in 2018. The degrees from Chinese universities are also being recognized worldwide with the mutual recognition agreements signed with many developed countries.  

Chinese Language

Chinese Mandarin is the most spoken language in the world by population. It might not easy to learn so it might be appealing to only those who already know Chinese. Nevertheless, even if you do not know Chinese, you can still enroll in international programs thereby consulting with education agents. After all, where would be the better place to learn some Chinese than China?  

Business Hub

Being the world’s second-largest economy and home to many giant corporates, China is undoubtedly the place where students can experience many things in those metropolitan cities such as Shanghai, Beijing, Shenzhen and more. Students can also seek internship opportunities to experience working in those giant-scale companies.  


China is a huge country with a hundred years of history. There are plenty of places for students to visit in China ranging from the well-known Great Wall of China to the Forbidden City in Beijing. Students can also travel to visit the Terracotta Army in Xi’an based in Shannxi province or visit Chengdu the capital of Sichuan province, the home of China’s unique species, Panda. 

Scholarship & Grants

Besides those fully-funded scholarships, there is also plenty of partial scholarship that can cover a huge portion of the cost and easier to obtain.

Though you might need to expect the expense to be doubled if you choose to study in those metropolitan cities, it is still affordable.
