Record number of Danish students going through China in order to get a better career

A record number of Danish students choose to move a large part of their
educational studies to China as a means to capture the growing part of
This year alone, nearly 50 aspiring students are travelling out to
China to take their two-year graduate program at a Chinese university.
That is almost 8 times as many as in 2010.
One of the pushing forces to this development is the Sino-Danish Centre
for Education and Research in Aarhus which is sending about 50
students to read among others Neuroscience and Neuroimaging in
schools such as those in Beijing starting in September. It is the new
training centre, Sino-Danish Centre for Education and Research in
Aarhus, which is designed to strengthen the educational and cultural
exchanges between the two countries.
The centre cooperates with 8 Danish universities and a Chinese
university, and interest in China has exceeded all expectations, says
centre administrator Søren Høst.
"The latest trends show that interest is growing. There are many people
who contact us to learn what new programs that are underway and what
the plans are for the coming year, so there is generally more interest
in us and for the trainings."
A great deal of the interest is because in recent years, there has been
increased focus on China and the cooperation between Denmark and China.
As such as the students become aware of, interest start growing
according to Søren Høst.
Most of the students hope that two years in China may them an advantage
in the labour market when they come back. International experience in
the Danish jobs market is very vitals and a knowledge of a very large
market such as China would be an added advantage.
