Germany a Top Destination for Chinese Students ~ The Chinese “Global Tribe” Revisited

The May 29, 2009 issue of News from DAAD New York provides some interesting data on the popularity of Germany as a study abroad destination for Chinese students with a link to a related article (in German) at the DAAD-magazin.de. I have copied and pasted the entire news bit from the DAAD here:

“Germany is the second most popular destination (after the United States) for Chinese students who have received national scholarships to study abroad. In 2008, 481 Chinese students awarded scholarships went to Germany, out of 4,892 award-winning students total. That's 9.8 percent of all scholarships. “

You can access the full article here.

I briefly touch on Chinese students in Germany in one of my first posts to IHEC Blog (9th post to be exact) entitled The Chinese “Global Tribe”. You can access that early post here.
