This actually works both ways. There are also many Chinese students (from mainland China) going to India every year for studies in various programs including Business Administration, Computer Applications and Engineering. The city of Bangalore in South India alone has thousands of Chinese students. And the numbers seem to be increasing every year.
This can be a great opportunity for Chinese students to practise their English, as all their education in India will be in English. Of course, they will come across many different Indian accents, but that is not necessarily such a bad thing. They will be in an environment where they will be forced to practise and improve their own English--if they wish to. However, the reality is that most such students (with a few exceptions) tend to stick together, avoiding the local students, speaking only in Chinese, playing online Chinese games, chatting in Chinese on QQ, watching Chinese movies,... in short, living in India exactly as they would live in China, and then complaining that they are not able to learn English or understand Indian English
I am given to understand that all they want is the certificate at the end of their studies so that they can find a good job in China!
What aspiring students need to watch out for is unscrupulous Chinese agents who charge them huge amounts of money for getting admission to Indian colleges that are rather sub-standard. Both the agents and the colleges can make a lot of money at the expense of these students. I am personally aware of one Chinese agent who has based himself in a South Indian city and who tries to force Chinese students applying to a particular university in that city to pay money to him whether they use his services or not. These agents manage to get away with some of their hanky-panky because they also act as interpreters between the students and the colleges.
If you want to study in India, there are many good colleges to go to, who will charge you less than the bad colleges. The difficulty is that you may not find sufficient information about them online. However, I may be able to help you...for a reasonable fee, of course (as I'll have to do a lot of work in this).
