LET’S GO CANADA – U.S. Students Head For China

China’s growth as a major economic hub in the global marketplace has led American students to make a beeline for courses at Chinese campuses. According to a study by the Institute of International Education, a New York-based research organization, the number of U.S. students in China has seen a 90 per cent jump from 2002 to 2004. Nearly 4,737 American students enrolled in Chinese universities in the 2003-2004 academic year, as compared to 2,493 students the previous year.

China’s investment in revamping its domestic education and training industry could turn the country into an important education destination for overseas students.

ABROAD PERSPECTIVE – Australia’s First U.S. University

The Australian government has given the go-ahead for U.S. university Carnegie Mellon to set up two campuses in the country. Carnegie Mellon will be operational in Adelaide from 2006 and will offer domestic and international students postgraduate courses in public policy and information technology. The Government had cleared amendments in an Education Act to let the university set up shop in Australia. This is the first time a foreign university has been allowed to open a campus in Australia.

GLOBE TIPPING – Best Fare Deal on the Net

With different airlines trying to outdo each other in offering discounted fares to customers, India’s travel industry is planning to launch a travel portal that will provide information on various fare schemes offered by leading airlines in the country. This will help customers get the best fare deal by accessing a single website.

The portal is expected to be operational by 2005. While the promoters of the travel portal, the Bird group, has already signed up five start-up airlines – Kingfisher Airlines, GoAir, Paramount Airways, Indus Airways and AirOne – talks are on to get older, more established airlines like Indian Airlines, Jet Airways, Air Sahara and Air Deccan into the fold.
