The QS report for 2021 is released, the number of students from mainland China studying in the UK universities will increase sharply in 2021!
In the context of the global pandemic, the number of international students studying in the UK has unexpectedly increased instead of falling!
The QS (Quacquarelli Symonds) survey shows that, as the UK has achieved significant results in vaccination, the epidemic control has stabilized, which has also allowed more international students to choose to study in the UK.
For 2021/22, QS surveyed 105,083 international students planning to study abroad. The survey results show that in the pandemic, 56% of the students said that they only consider going to countries with high vaccination rate. 47% of international students decide to choose the UK as their first choice for studying abroad. The reason behind this is also because of the higher vaccination rate in the UK which is more attractive to international students than to other countries.
Among the preparatory students surveyed, nearly one-fifth (17%) of the students stated that they think the UK is the best in the European region in terms of vaccine promotion, and studying in the UK is the right and safe choice. In addition, 68% of students said that as long as the local government provides services for vaccinating, they are willing to choose to go to the country.
In December last year, the British Ministry of Health and Social Welfare announced that students studying in the UK can receive the vaccine for free, and no different from local British residents. Once this policy was released, it was immediately praised by countless international students.
In addition to vaccine policy, the British government has also introduced favourable policies for international students, such as the reintroduction of the “PSW” graduate visa, which has also become one of the important reasons for attracting international students to the UK.
In 2021, the number of applications for studying in the UK has skyrocketed, and the number of applications has reached the highest level in history. As of January 29, 2021, 25,810 mainland Chinese students have submitted applications for undergraduate courses, an increase of 21.46% over the same period last year. The United Kingdom has also surpassed the United States for the first time with a ratio of 42%, becoming the “most desired country for studying abroad” in the minds of Chinese students.
