2020之后,英美大学会失去中国学生吗?

Western Universities Rely on China. After the Virus, That May Not Last

西方大学依赖中国学生,疫情过后恐怕好景不长

Universities in English-speaking countries have grown increasingly dependent on tuition from Chinese students, but the business model could be dismantled by the coronavirus.

英语国家的大学越来越依赖来自中国学生的学费,但这种商业模式可能会被新冠病毒摧毁。

With qualifying exams postponed, travel bans spreading and anger rising among Chinese students and parents at the West’s permissive attitude toward public health, enrollment could plummet in the coming years, experts said, potentially leaving countries with multibillion-dollar holes in their universities’ budgets.

专家表示,由于各类资格考试推迟、旅行禁令扩大、中国学生和家长对西方国家放任公共卫生问题自流的态度愈加愤怒,未来几年中国学生的入学率可能会急剧下降,这可能会让一些国家的大学预算出现数十亿美元的缺口。

In Britain, some Chinese students are fuming that universities did not act more decisively to move classes online and scrap major events like spring balls.

在英国,一些中国学生对大学没有更果断地实施网上授课并取消春季舞会等重大活动感到非常生气。

And in the United States, swift shutdowns left international students without any help as they packed up and tried to find affordable flights home.

而在美国,学校迅速关闭,国际学生在收拾行装、试图买到负担得起的机票回家时孤立无援。

Taken together, those slights and miscalculations have dented the reputation of overseas universities in China, analysts said.

分析人士说,这些怠慢加上误判损害了海外大学在中国的声誉。

“I think this is going to exacerbate the sense that has been growing for years that the U.K., and to a lesser extent the U.S., are not great destinations for international students, especially Chinese students,” said Craig Calhoun, a former director of the London School of Economics and Political Science. “Applications and acceptances could go down precipitously, and I think very few U.K. universities have planned for that.”

“我认为这将加剧一种多年来不断强化的感觉:对于以中国学生为尤的国际学生来说,英国不是留学的好地方,美国也没好多少。”伦敦政治经济学院前院长克雷格·卡尔霍恩说,“申请和录取人数可能会急转直下,我认为几乎没有英国大学计划好应对这一情况。”
