About 290,000 studied in China in 2011, compared to just over 60,000 in 2001, according to the MOE. South Koreans (62,442) were the largest group of foreign students studying in China in 2011, followed by Americans (23,292). The Japanese (17,961), Russians (13,340), Indonesians (10,957) and Indians (9,370) also have large student populations, while almost 50,000 Europeans undertook some form of tertiary study in China in 2011, led by France (7,592) and Germany (5,451), UK (5,129).
what about the rest? 100K Africans?
I remember in the early 90's when Japanese were by far the biggest number in the foreign student population, seems government propaganda against them really changed that.
MOE = Maestro of Enlightenment
The 100K rest are the ones on student visas that don't study. 99,000 of them live in Kunming.
for once i try not to be a smart-ass and make a contributory post, and i get mocked!
