Differences Between Higher Education in China and Argentina
Higher education in China is continuously growing, changing and developing. There are over 2,000 universities and colleges, with more than six million enrollments in total. China has set up a degree system, including Bachelors, Masters and Doctoral degrees that are also open to foreign students. The country offers non-degree programs as well.
In Argentina,there are universities and tertiary programs. Universities can be state funded or completely private. Those which are state funded are completely tuition free (but generally they don’t have residence halls on their campus, so often you don’t move out from your home town). Tertiary programs include 4-year courses but are generally dedicated to teacher training and technicians in different fields. The Universidad Nacional de Cuyo is the biggest state funded university in the Argentinian midwest.
It is a good chance for students in Argentina to study in China at the present time. According to the Ministry of Education of the People's Republic of China, the government authority on all matters pertaining to education and language, higher education in China has played a significant part in economic growth, scientific progress and social development in the country "by bringing up large scale of advanced talents and experts for the construction of socialist modernization." In recent years, China has also become a major destination for international students.As of 2013, China is the most popular country in Asia for international students and ranks third overall among the world.
It has been predicted that China will overtake United Kingdom as the second most popular country for international students, by 2020.
