Officials from universities around the world are touring seven Chinese cities, including Beijing, Shanghai and Nanjing through April 9.

Officials from more than 250 universities, colleges and educational institutions from 29 countries and regions were in Beijing last weekend.

They were part of the annual China International Education Exhibition Tour.

Representatives from nine countries along the Belt and Road routes, including some central Asian countries, were also part of the tour.

At the event, student admission officers were there to provide parents and students with professional guidance on choices in terms of universities, colleges and majors.

The officials from the universities are touring seven Chinese cities, including Shanghai, Nanjing and Xi'an, through April 9.

The tour, which is one of the largest education events in China, has been organized by the Chinese Service Center for Scholarly Exchange, affiliated with the Ministry of Education.

“It (the event) meets the demands of the Chinese market,” says Vivienne Stern, the director of Universities UK International.

Unistats is the official site that allows you to compare data and information on university and college courses from across the United Kingdom. Its data shows that six months after graduating, manufacturing engineering students' annual salaries can range from 22,000-28,000 ponds (,600-35,000).

Speaking about what Chinese students are going in for, she says: “We're seeing them make a broad range of choices among 80,000 programs in the UK. They think about what is right for them. That's why events like these are important, because they (the students) can understand what individual universities are like.”

According to her, there are about 115,000 Chinese students in the UK now, and they are the largest group among the international students.

Stern says that the UK remains one of the cheapest study destinations among English-speaking countries.

“It's a great time to go to the UK as the exchange rate is favorable after Brexit, making the courses more affordable.”
