1. Chinese unis are very highly rates 2. If you as a foreigner work in china, you are very likely to earn bare living

students are banned from working in china, still some people does it like teaching English etc.. but if you got caught you are getting 15 days in jail, and deported, unless your university tries to save you.

I am not talking about working there as a student. My mum has a friend who is 26(i think) and she earns shit tonne of money just by teaching Chinese kids english.

100 % they earn a shit ton, I mean even the guys without English license get paid at least 250 yuan/lesson, but I think they are becoming more strict with those guys recently.
2022-01-22 11:16
Damn, that's a weird law. How about students from poor families? Kinda weird.

Actually, it is quite cheap to live in china apart from big cities, even the rent is kinda cheap, I was renting a duplex apartment (3 rooms, 2 balconies and 2 toilets) with 2 guys for only 450-500$ and it was at the center. (second grade city zhengzhou) My room was as big as a studio, and my living expenses were between 300-400$ per month, while I've seen people living with less. So you can kinda live off with your parents money and for private teaching you won't get caught unless you are retarded, and the best option would be teaching them at their house and like I said even teaching without a license will still get you a lot of money 250 yuan per lesson or more if you are white.

I always thought that because of people density in China, you have to pay a horrendous amount of money for 15-20sm flats. Or does it stand only for Japan tho?

some cunts used to go china with student visa, just to go work and get money, they don't stay in the uni. so I guess overtime it became strict like this due to those kinds of problems.

Shanghai and BC probably have the most intensive programs. If you just wanna chill and have fun probably Pompeu Fabra but you won't get much done especially in summer. QMUL mile end road?

Shanghai is deffo the hardest mode out of all the options. I would also see what internships they offer at the different uni's and see what fits more your prospective career pathways after studying. You may be able to land a solid job right out of graduating. Also factor in your background and languages as you may get a more senior position in corporate fin a lot faster than your other peers.

China could be a great experience and education level is insanely high from what I've heard from people who studied there. Canada is also a good option imo

There is no such thing as focusing on studies on an exchange semester, the classes are famously almost impossible to fail on exchange, and the level is quite low

I go to Copenhagen University. It's very great. High level courses and good teachers. But nightlife closes at 23.00 atm so not much to do if you wanna have fun But exchange semester is not about learning, it's about having fun and experiencing new cultures. No matter where you go, your exchange semester classes will be easy and the grades won't count for anything. Go to a country you want to experience, have fun and fuck some local girls. I went to South Korea on my exchange semester and had the time of my life.

I'd personally go to the University of British Columbia, although the cost of living in Vancouver is mad expensive so that's a big factor. If you think you can afford it somehow that's the best choice, otherwise, I'd go for Copenhagen if studying is what you want. If you want to have fun I'd go for Barcelona or Milan.

China or Denmark. And I highly recommend to search people in LinkedIn who graduated from all these Universities and find out where are they now. Also, check the university agreements with private companies. It's like when choosing subjects every single year: you always have to research on every teacher before picking anything. You might end up losing an entire semestre/year because the teacher was HORRIBLE, boring or probably a perv. At least this last thing was quite important when I studied History: the subject can have a complitely diferent content because their point of view :____

What do you want to study? Denmark is the only place (out of the countries you listed) that will actually pay you to study (SU - state education support). Being a foreigner you will have to work a bit on the side to be able to get it, but it is still a HUGE benefit. Also the quality of the education is top notch "University of Copenhagen is ranked number 6 in Europe (number 1 in Continental Europe) and number 26 in the world according to the Academic Ranking of World Universities" The biggest and maybe only drawback is the weather.

UBC student and also an immigrant here. Firstly English is the main language, which is always a plus imo. People are friendly, and we have many people from different countries, so its easier to get used to the culture. But you gotta put in the effort to make close friends because I feel like everyone is just trying to mind their own business here and everyone is very reserved. Public transportation is very good, you can go to pretty much anywhere for "free" (by free, i mean you pay 170$ a year as a student and you can use it as much as you want in Vancouver). I even travelled to places outside of Vancouver by only public transportation, so it has a great system here. Then it also has a lot of road for bikers as well. Living in Vancouver is hella expensive tho, especially the rent (I think its the most expensive city in Canada). Rent in uni dorms is cheaper but harder to get into. Weather is very rainy but it usually isn't super cold. Then also Canada >>>>>>
