Chinese students make up nearly a quarter of full-time masters-level students in UK
(04-02 20:15)

Nearly a quarter of students enrolled in masters degree courses in the UK are Chinese and the majority are studying management and business, according to an analysis of overseas students by the Higher Education Funding Council of England.
Students from China accounted for 23 percent of students in full-time postgraduate taught masters programs in 2012-2103, the council found.
Comparatively, UK students made up 26 per cent of the full-time taught masters enrolments in the period.
But the council observed that the proportions are influenced by declines in entrants from traditional UK postgraduate markets including India, Pakistan and Iran, coupled with the continued rise in students from China.
The report estimates that overseas students contributed £10 billion in 2011-2012 to the British economy.
More than half, or 52 per cent, of students from China are on management and business studies courses.
In terms of subjects at full-time masters level, Chinese students account for 58 per cent of all international full-time entrants in maths studies, followed by media studies (56 per cent), business and management studies (47 per cent), engineering (39 per cent), architecture and chemistry (37 per cent each) and creative arts (35 per cent), the council found.—The Standard
