Research Reports

This report focuses on the growing phenomenon of African students migrating to China for their studies, from a holistic and quantitative point of view, specifically, their perceptions and experiences in the system of Higher Education cooperation and exchange between African and China. The trend of educational migration has accelerated and been institutionalized since the turn of the millennium, which emphasizes the need for up-to-date research. This report is the result of Phandulwazi nge China scholar Hannane Ferdjani’s work at the CCS between May and July 2012. She conducted fieldwork in Beijing in June this year.
