Choose a subject
Choose the subject that you will be studying in China. Choosing the right subject at the right time will give you plenty of time to search for multiple universities. If you are going to apply for a scholarship, choosing the subject becomes even more important, as not every university and college grants scholarships. Another thing that may worry you regarding studies in China is that not every province or region has universities/colleges that offer programs in all subjects.
Select the region
Since China is a big country and traveling is a big issue for people, you have to choose the region that is closer to all the major cities or city. You may not be able to find a university in the middle of a major city, and several education centers are in the outskirts, but having access to facilities like the airport, railway network and shopping areas will make your student life far easier.
Choose the language in which you will be studying
Although the main language of China is Chinese, and almost every university offers education in the national language, there are several institutes that are now offering courses in languages like English, German and French. Taking up a course in Chinese will require you to have expertise in the Chinese language, and for that, you will have to prove to the university that you can understand and speak the language. In most cases, you will have to take up a short language course before starting your formal classes at the university. However, most foreign students prefer to take up courses in the English language and the Chinese government is encouraging more and more universities and colleges to arrange for foreign teachers.
