However, the current situation has made studying in the U.S. much less attractive, at least in the near future, especially for STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) majors," said Yang Xinyu, minister counselor for educational affairs at the Chinese Embassy in the United States, in a recent conversation with Julia Chang Bloch, president of U.S.-China Education Trust, a Washington D.C.-based nonprofit organization, and former U.S. ambassador to Nepal."The pandemic has made most in-person exchanges impossible... Besides the fact that in the past few months federal policy has changed to make international students nervous, Chinese students and scholars are also facing more challenges and feeling unwelcome or even threatened," said Yang.The Trump administration has issued tougher immigration policies for international students, in particular, special scrutiny and restrictions for Chinese students, who make up one third of over 1 million international students in the United States before the pandemic."I have heard of very outstanding Chinese students giving up offers for STEM majors in prestigious U.S. universities and turning to less attractive universities in other countries in fear of possible risks," said Yang."In the short term, it means loss to both the student as an individual and the American university as an institute. But in the long run, it will be detrimental to the educational exchange and research collaboration between the two countries," she added.var addthis_config = {"data_track_addressbar":false};(For the latest China news, Please follow Peoples Daily on Twitter and Facebook)(Web editor: Xian Jiangnan, Bianji)Add your comment/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var shortname=window.location.host;var disqus_shortname=;var disqus_identifier=;if (shortname==en.people.cn){disqus_shortname=enpeople;disqus_identifier = 9798635;}/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function() {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = // + disqus_shortname + .disqus.com/embed.js;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.Related readingU.S. must stop meddling in Chinas internal affairsChina imposes reciprocal sanctions on certain U.S. individualsU.S. instigating ideological confrontation sounds alarm Joint efforts urged to mend Sino-US tiesChinese Amb.
