Also the British School of Beijing (BSB) also held their school fair in 8KM COFFEE in Wangjing subdistrict, Beijing on April 24th for Korean parents and students who are interested in admission to International school in China.
BSB is preferred international school for diplomats and foreigners in Beijing as it is located 30 minute drive away from Wangjing subdistrict in Beijing where a lot of Koreans reside.
Unlike Korean international schools, these foreign international schools in Beijing starts their school year in September thus many foreigners who came to China early in the year prefer to send their children there.
College fair was also held on March 23 for multicultural families who have their children attending Korean International School in Beijing.
Gacheon University, Hankuk University of Foreign Studies (HUFS), Inha University and other Korean universities also held their college fairs for Korean international schools in China.

With reasonable cost, close proximity, and the fact that the student can learn Chinese and English together, China is attracting many students to study abroad there.
