Studying in Asian universities is on the rise, as international student mobility has changed over almost the last past decade. There was a time when students from Asian universities used to travel to the West for higher studies. Even though countries like the US, UK, and Australia remain popular destinations for studying abroad, countries in Asia also offer some amazing universities.
There are benefits for studying in Asia including a lower cost of living, diverse cities, and milder weather conditions.
Other than China and Hong Kong, there is four rising study abroad destinations in Asia. They are Malaysia, Taiwan, South Korea, and Japan.
According to Times Higher Education, “Japan is a country that successfully maintains ancient traditions alongside its identity as a nation of technological innovation. This contrast can also be seen in the country’s higher education institutions as they develop their research output and international outreach while preserving Japan’s cultures and values.”
Similarly according to QS Top Universities “Investment in education and research has been at the heart of South Korea’s growth into the world’s 11th largest economy and the fourth largest economy within Asia. It’s this investment and growth in innovation and technology that has meant the country is known as one of the four ‘Asian Tiger’ economies, alongside Hong Kong, Singapore, and Taiwan.”
