1.Studying in China can make your resume stand out

Study abroad could be a valuable experience that worth adding to your CV, especially experience relevant to China. As the rapid growth of the Chinese economy and influential power across the world, people start to take Chinese relevant experience as a priceless mark when regards to the employment market. The employers always get intrigued when there is a candidate who owns an international background. For abroad study experience can bring the individual a new perspective on culture, language skills and also arouse his/her enthusiasm for learning new things. It’s needless to say that a candidate owns international background would be more attractive to employers.

2.Studying in China can increase your global awareness

Watching documentaries that produced by National Geographic or BBC is not the only way for you to learn and explore different cultures. It’s vital to be able to view things from various perspectives and to notice that the whole world needs more collaborations and communications rather than debating or conflicts. Through living and studying in China, you will have the chance to experience a brand-new oriental world. Also, you could observe this familiar world from a different point of view and back up your knowledge with a new global mindset.   

3.Overseas experience helps you learn and embrace various cultures

One of the reasons why you should study abroad in China is that you could immerse yourself in a cross-cultural environment. You would also have the chance to explore a new culture in-depth. Nowadays, cross-cultural communication techniques considered as a highly demanded professional skill, it would be so helpful to study abroad in China for a period and gain some international experience in aspects such as culture, language, business, and politics.  

4.The chance of mastering a new language

Study abroad in China means that you can learn Chinese through immersing in this whole Chinese speaking environment. Learning a new language could be hard when you cannot get immersion in its culture. When studying in China, you would have the opportunity of doing considerable practice with a native speaker on the daily routine. You can also experience Chinese culture and customs in reality. It’s helpful when you try to know more about the cultural backgrounds behind the language, vice versa, study in China can also facilitate your language learning. If you have already started learning Chinese in your country, then this would be a brilliant chance for you to improve your Chinese proficiency too.

Studying abroad in China is also a rare opportunity to make lifelong friends from diverse cultural backgrounds. You’re going to meet plenty of new people and find some sincere friends among them. They would be ideal emotional support when you live alone in a strange country, and also an unforgettable memory when you back home.

7.Discovering new and exciting foods

Local gourmet and authentic cuisine are the reason why some people come over and study in China. Culinary delight is something that you cannot miss. You would have a great chance to savour and try all these exciting and inspiring foods when studying abroad in China.

8.Challenging yourself and gain independence

Going overseas to start a new journey of learning and living isn’t necessarily easy for everybody. Accompanied by opportunities, there are always challenges for you to face and to conquer. You would have a chance to fully develop your potential and independence as well by travelling to China to study. As an international learner, you would have to learn how to adjust to life outside of your country.  You would have to walk out from your comfort zone and take care of all arrangements in your life when travelling to China for study, and that’s the dominant element making you abroad experience unique and valuable.  

9.Learning to be grateful

Living abroad with fewer possessions and far away from your families, you may feel homesick and also be grateful for what you have. You may change your view about those things that you have taken for granted previously in your life. Studying abroad in China can help you learn to be grateful. I would say this is the biggest reason why you should study abroad in China and also the best way of leading you to happiness.

10.Discovering “who you are” and get yourself new interests

Studying abroad in China would expand your knowledge and therefore provide new paths for you to pursue your passions. During your trip and living in a strange nation, you may have the time to think about what makes you the person who you are. Because when staying in an unfamiliar environment, you would cultivate a self-conscious to help you notice yourself more clearly and also discovering what is a meaningful life for you.  

In this gradually globalized world, abroad study experience, especially those related to China, could bring more benefits for you than above content. Like the saying, “Shooting for the moon. Even if you miss, you will land among the stars.”
