Report: More than 70% of overseas students want to return to China

(People's Daily Online)    18:22, January 15, 2016

Due to a good entrepreneurial environment and sound economic development, China is seeing an increasing number of Chinese students returning home after studying abroad.

The number of Chinese students studying abroad in 2014 totaled nearly 460,000, and over 360,000 of those students returned home after finishing their studies, according to statistics from the Chinese Ministry of Education.

Over 70 percent of Chinese students studying abroad express their desire to return to China after completing their studies, according to the 2014 Blue Book of Global Talent released by the Chinese Service Center for Scholarly Exchange.

Some experts predict that China will see more students returning from overseas than going abroad in the next five years. Moreover, instead of being a country with a talent deficit, China is expected to become one of the countries to which most overseas students choose to return. 

The Blue Book also points out that most of the returning overseas students earn less than 10,000 yuan per month. For 32.8 percent of overseas students with doctoral degrees, 40.86 percent of overseas students with master’s degrees, and 47.74 percent of overseas students with bachelor’s degrees, monthly pay is below 5,000 yuan. These salaries indicate that they have few advantages over local graduates.
