There are many compelling reasons to study in China, with just one being the commitment to education demonstrated by the steadily increasing levels of investment in education across the nation.

The number of educational institutions has doubled in the last decade to over 2,409 and many universities are developing research and analytic facilities to rival the best schools in the west.

A focal initiative is Project 211, which was created in order to bring 100 Chinese universities up to a world-class standard.  Similarly, Project 985 was initiated, with the aim of creating an even more elite group of universities. This has led to the creation of the C9 league, with the aim of establishing itself as something akin to the US Ivy League.

France’s credentials as a cultural center are unrivalled. From the urbane sophistication and history of its cities, to its legendary culinary tradition, to the spectacular scenery of rugged mountains and verdant forests, white beaches and azure seas– everyone has their own idealized conception of France. This accounts for the fact that, according to the United Nations World Tourist Organization, it stands as the world’s most popular tourist destination.

This is the nation that produced thinkers such as René Descartes and Jean-Paul Sartre, authors like Marcel Proust and Albert Camus, filmmakers like Jean-Luc Godard and Jean Renoir, and artists like Claude Monet and Paul Cézanne. On top of these names can be added a host of scientists, mathematicians and other researchers, whose names may be slightly less familiar, but whose achievements are no less spectacular.

Why not study in the country that inspired these great minds?
