While most overseas students have opted to stay where they are in order to avoid cross-infections on the journey home, some students do have difficulties living abroad without family members amid the growing pandemic. The next stage of their study is also unclear, as schools and universities have been closed or restricted access to campuses indefinitely to curb the spread of the virus."It's difficult for me to make such a decision in a rush," Sophie Wang, a college student in London who had recently returned to China and completed a 14-day quarantine period in Beijing, told the Global Times, adding that her parents urged her to go back.Wang said many of her friends'Grocery Store Display Racks For Sale parents spent 16,000 to 30,000 yuan ($2,300-$4,300) to secure all sorts of plane tickets to China for their children.
As some of the flights were canceled on very short notice, they had to buy tickets repeatedly, which was very frustrating."There is a lot of uncertainty," Wang said, adding that no matter how difficult it was, returning home will help her get through it, with more support from family and friends in China.
To curtail the rise in the number of imported coronavirus cases, China is limiting the number of international flights in and out of the country.
Starting from March 29, Chinese airlines were only allowed to run one route to each country, with no more than one flight per week for each route, according to a statement published on March 26 by the Civil Aviation Administration of China.There are 220,000 Chinese students in the UK, including 15,000 school pupils, Chinese Ambassador Liu Xiaoming said in an earlier interview.
Staying is an optionThe impact of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic on overseas Chinese students has been huge, putting them in a dilemma over whether to stay abroad or return home.
Colin Chen, executive director of InterGreat Education Group, told the Global Times that since the outbreak of COVID-19 in the UK, his company has been helping the Chinese embassy in the UK to collect information on school pupils who are facing difficulties. Chinese pupils in the UK are in schools scattered all over the country, with some staying in boarding schools and some living with guardian families, which made gathering the information somewhat difficult, according to Chen.Chen said they are trying to reach out to individual Chinese students through the Boarding Schools' Association (BSA). As boarding schools are encouraging students to return home, there are only a small number of overseas students staying in schools with limited numbers of staff. This is also likely to be a long-term arrangement.
