Weak Dollar, Linient Policy Drive Chinese Students to U.S.

Chinese Business Morning View, Posted: Sep 15, 2009

A relaxed U.S. immigration policy towards international students and a weak dollar are attracting more students from China, reports the Chinese Business Morning View.

Starting this fall, students attending certain public high schools in cities like Chicago, Seattle and Boston with F1-type student visas can apply directly to U.S. colleges after receiving diplomas, a move that was not allowed in the past. Wu Yue, an overseas education consultant interviewed by the paper, said the current currency exchange rate between the United States and China contributes to a 30 percent drop in tuition expenses for overseas Chinese students, attracting them to apply.

However, admission to U.S. colleges remains more competitive as the high unemployment rate discourages students from leaving schools.
