China’s international schools market is surging with the impact of new policies that have opened up the sector to the local student population. Annual tuition fees at English-medium international and bilingual schools reached US$ 6.9 billion in 2019, and the number of schools grew from 629 to 857 over a 5-year period, ISC Research.

Student enrolments have grown not only in Beijing and Shanghai but also in other Tier 1 cities. Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Chengdu and several cities throughout China are exploding with new schools. IBC Asia’s 5th International and Bilingual Schools China 2019 moves from Shanghai to Guangzhou, to profile a new region, and at the same time address opportunities in China as a whole.
