The world’s most populous country with 1.38 billion citizens, China has witnessed a boom in international schooling since the millennium. Most international schools are centred on Shanghai and Beijing with smaller clusters around Guangzhou, Chengdu and Qingdao. 

More than 500 English-medium international schools now exist in mainland China, compared to just 22 in 2001, and together they enrol more than 200,000 students. Among them are 172 IB World Schools, including 116 authorised to offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma. You can see the full list at www.ibo.org.

There are schools offering the curriculums of France, Germany, Switzerland, Korea, Japan, Australia and Canada, while many follow American and British programmes and exams. Most are coeducational day schools but a sizeable minority offer boarding, including sister schools to several leading British independent schools.  

Education is compulsory and free to Chinese citizens for nine years. It includes six years of primary schooling starting from age six and three years of middle school up to age 15. Three years of senior secondary school or vocational education follow. 

IB World Schools are part of a thriving international school sector in China. For information on all Chinese international schools, you can visit: www.internationalschoolsearch.com
