Many Chinese students who choose to study abroad are choosing not to return home.

Two-thirds of the nearly one million Chinese students who have gone abroad to study since the 1980s have not returned home, according to government statistics. The government says that ratio is higher than any other country.

Media reports state that since 2002, more than 100,000 students have gone abroad to study each year.
