From 1999, China began to dramatically expand its higher education system. Since then, more and more Chinese students have achieved access to higher education. Despite these increases in enrolment, access to higher education in China remains a very competitive Endeavour because of “gaokao”, the National College Entrance Exam(NCEE), which is described by the Chinese as “thousands of troops on a single-log bridge” due to its low enrolment rate. In 2011, the Ministry of Education informed that a record of 9.33 million people had applied for the exam and about 6.75 million would be able to enter college(app %). It is still a competitive situation. Particularly, as there is a tendency to try to enter the prestigious institutions(identified under Project 211 and Project 985) rather then others so that the competition between the HEIs is increasing.

Although study abroad is not one of main policy goals of the Chinese government, in 1992 the MoE set the agenda with a sentence which could be translated as “support [students] to go abroad, encourage [them] to come back, and freedom of entry and exit”. This strategy seems to be successful. In 2010, 284,700 Chinese students were studying abroad. However only nearly 4000 students are enrolled study abroad to Malaysia in the same year.

PART 2 What are the motivations and perceptions of studying abroad in China? Respond from students and parents have found that Chinese students are influence by a range of factors. I.Availability of places in educational institutions in their home country II.Branding of the education systems in the country III.Reputations of universities – marketability of given qualification upon graduation IV.Ease of entering the destination country V.Cost of living and fees VI.Changes in exchange rates VII.Possibility of migrating to the destination country Result: International student populations vary from country to country.
PART 3 Challenges and Opportunities Chinese students are received in some 103 countries Hundreds of colleges and universities not only from the traditional education destinations such as Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom, United States of America and Canada; Northern and Southern Americas, Europe, including Eastern Europe, Africa and neighboring countries such as Thailand and Singapore are venturing into China, offering similar courses as Malaysia’s, thus offering stiff competition to student’s recruitments. In the next 15 years, China has to establish at least 800 colleges to meet the need with an estimated capital of US 68 billion. Obviously, it exceeds what the public coffers can offer. Besides the demand for higher education, China also needs especially in the fields of vocational training to impart training to millions of rural migrants, retrain millions of laid-off workers and upgrade the skills of some 700 million employed persons.
Government Develop an effective “toolbox” of supportive enrolment of international students. One of the most important factors that influence the demand by students for a particular country’s education is the immigration and student visa laws. If it is relatively easy for students to be granted entry to a particular country compared to other Offering more flexible policy to international students Improve immigration policies, procedures and processing. Ensure Malaysia is a friendly-study destination Malaysia had many competitive advantages such as political and economic stability, excellent infrastructure, relatively low tuition fees and living costs and a widespread use of English. These strengths must be widely publicized to the China students to promote Malaysia as the alternate destination for higher education.
HEIs More market-oriented courses and programmers offer by Malaysian higher education institution which is leading to enhanced employability. Continue to contribute the financial human and in-kind resources necessary to recruit, admit and effectively support international students. Develop or enhance existing institutional international recruitment strategies. Maximize the presence of international students on campus to further internationalize their teaching, research and community outreach activities. Bring together international educators from China for example Carefully screened, high-quality student recruitment agents at networking forums around the country devoted to achieving results and growing international student enrolments. Extending relationships with existing contacts, obtaining market intelligence and feedback, and promoting their brand in the international education marketplace. Institutions to discuss partnership opportunities such as exchange programs and twinning agreements. The teaching by home staff in overseas institutions, and in the development of offshore campuses. These developments have meant that Malaysian universities now have a direct presence in a number of cities.
