Top 5 Best Practices for Recruiting and Keeping your Students from China

Share This

You spend quite a lot of time and effort attracting this group of students but now you have to make sure they stay with your program. More powerful than agents are Chinese students impressions of your campus and whom they share that with (WORD OF MOUTH)! Keep them happy and more students will come to your campus naturally!

Based on 2015 NAFSA Nationals, here are the most popular suggestions:

1) Having American friends improves retention
2) Selling point should be that your campus does not have many Chinese students on campus. Diversity
3) Making Chinese students feel at home and not be too homesick- put together a Chinese movie night or Chinese food event that will also attract American students
4) Translate the application pages on your website into Chinese or have them as pdf if your website gets blocked by Great Chinese FireWall
5) Help students from China find internship programs. They need more real life experience since it is not a part of their curriculum in China.
