Abstract

With its strong economic growth over the past 40 years, China has become a major source of students for international education providers. Previous research has identified some push and pull factors that influence Chinese students’ overseas study destination choice. Nevertheless, scholars hold different viewpoints on those factors. Furthermore, those findings may be limited because most research is carried out by overseas-based researchers and, due to the language barrier and/or cultural differences; they may overlook some most recent findings from the Chinese research literature. The aim of this paper is to identify differences between overseas-based and China-based research outcomes, in order to develop a more comprehensive view of factors that may impact on mainland Chinese students’ overseas destination choice.
