How do you choose your ideal university? We suggest that you consider the following aspects:

1. Your preference

Do you have a favorite Hubei city or university? If there is, why not apply for it now? If you're not very familiar with Hubei's cities, take a look at our Overview.

2. Budget

In comparison to Beijing, Shanghai, and large coastal cities, the cost of living in Hubei is relatively low. For example, Wuhan, Huangshi, Huanggang, and other cities are all well-developed with beautiful scenery and many excellent universities. If you don't have a large budget, you may wish to consider these cities.

3. Rank

You can check the annual ranking of all the universities in China or you can also refer to the list of "Project 985" universities and the list of "Project 211" universities. They are regarded as China's top universities.

4. University Characteristics and Strong Points

If you have a particular major that you want to study, you can choose according to the universities' expertise.

5. Fellow citizens

Applicants may choose to apply to a university where you have more fellow citizens. This may help you settle in more quickly to a new environment. Or you can do the opposite and apply to a university that doesn't have that many fellow citizens. This may reduce the opportunities for you to speak your own language and in turn improve your Chinese fluency.
