For domestic students studying abroad intention, in March and April of each year, it is the most critical application period for studying abroad. During March, the major domestic studying abroad exhibition has been held, new year studying abroad boom is coming. It is According to the analysis by Oxbridge Education Group chairman Mr. Zhao Peng, In 2013, the number of domestic applications studying abroad at their own expense is nearly 50 million, in fact, at the end of 2012, the number of students studying abroad at their own expense over 400,000.
Green China: You have said low age studying abroad is an inevitable trend, do you support that?
Zhao Peng: First, we must acknowledged, at basic stage education, teaching quality is in the leading position in the world, especially at this stage, the depth of teaching content and theory of Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry are more famous in the world. But on higher education of China, like the Ministry of Education Minister Yuan at the People's Congress publicly acknowledged that, higher education of china is now in the relatively backward position in the world. Yesterday, I saw an article that higher education of china has been close to the lowest level in the world, this is an indisputable fact.
Green China: There are a lot of parents, whatever in elementary, junior high, high school or undergraduate level, want to send their children abroad, what is the most fundamental reason do you think?
Zhao Peng: There are many reasons, one is high score themselves, can recommend for admission to Peking University and Tsinghua University, but they give up this chance, and studying abroad in the Unite State. For other students in the country, this chance is sent to other students. Studying abroad students in the internationally famous universities are able to fight by themselves, to seize the resources, it is a good thing for individuals and our country, it is not that our students to go abroad and give money to the foreign, and in fact, use their advanced education resources, training qualified personnel for our country.
Green China: There is a demand and a great market, some relatively large institutions, including Oxbridge, JinJiLi, AoJi, New Channel, etc., why not appear a dominant situation for foreign language training market.
Zhao Peng: It is different from foreign language training, New Oriental of foreign language training is a dominant due to its special historical reasons, New Oriental brand like God in the language training area, no one can surpass, but studying abroad is not the same as it, studying abroad is a very delicate long time service, it concerns the person's life, then to do the very satisfied service for each customer, need a lot of manpower and material resources. Also said it rely entirely on human resources to complete this service process, now is not possible, the future is also impossible to form a dominant situation, unless it has a strong sense of historical responsibility, the service system is very perfect, its brand is the same as New Oriental of foreign language training.
