China, which held a fair in London on Monday noon, focused on encouraging British students to study or work in China.

The vice chancellor of the London South Bank University said, "The fair gives young children an opportunity to get to know China and build up relationship with Chinese institutes."
The minister counsellor with the Chinese Embassy to the UK, Shen Yang said, "China is offering scholarships to encourage British students, with provinces also providing local scholarships. Come 2020, we hope 5,00,000 international students will be studying in China."
Moreover, the British council is making an endeavor as well by launching a three-year 'Generation UK' campaign, which aims for about 15,000 British students, to participate in study abroad or internship programs in China, by 2016.
Jazreel Goh, the director of education marketing with the British Council China said, "British students are encouraged to go abroad, not only to China, to broaden their horizon while they are young."
"Returning British students understand China better, and many students are willing to go out exploring the world and return with better skills, which make them more competitive while seeking a job in Britain," she said.
"While scholarships are offered, I hope that the fair could help more foreign students learn more about the upsides to Chinese education, " she added.
