Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookChapter

Abstract

With the People’s Republic of China’s growth in economic prosperity and political
influence, the number of students from China choosing to study overseas continues
to increase. Of the 3.3 million internationally mobile students, China is the largest
source country. In the 2009–2010 academic year, there were more than 127,628
students from China studying in the United States alone. The motivations for Chinese students seeking education abroad include a belief that it will open opportunities for increased wealth and migration.
