The Guardian reporter: Many Chinese people who have studied in the UK say the biggest pros are not beautiful scenes and historical buildings but the fact that they can work for a couple of years after they graduate in the UK. Is it still going to be the case with immigration changes?


In the accompaniment with UK Prime Minister David Cameron's two-day state visit to China, Gove attended the fifth Annual China-UK Ministerial Summit in Beijing, where he agreed a number of agendas to promote UK-China educational collaboration. These include:

- A joint program to train 1,000 new Chinese language teachers in the next five years to promote Mandarin learning in the UK signed between the Office of Chinese Language Councils International (the Hanban) and Specialist Schools and Academies Trust (SSAT)

- A new UK-China Partners in Education Program to fund higher and further education institutional partnerships

- An agreement to increase the number of UK students studying in China
