Universities in China

China has 39 institutions ranked in the QS World University Rankings 2018, including six new entries, and substantially more universities are included in the QS University Rankings: Asia 2016.

With the growing global status of China, within trade, tourism and education, study in China is seeing huge increases in popularity. According to ICEF Monitor, 442,773 international students studied in China in 2016 (an increase of 11% from the previous year), while more than nine million students take the national university entrance examination every year, making China home to one of the largest education systems in the world.

By 2020, the Chinese government aims to have 500,000 international students enrolled in Chinese higher education, and it seems on track to reach its target.
