University counseling services have become an especially hot business now that the gaokao, China’s national university entrance exams, are over.

Promising to help students through big data and one-on-one consultations with experts, these university counseling agencies charge high prices.

Student flows with Chinese characteristics | FT Alphaville
Chinese students pay much higher fees than UK or EU students. Total overseas non-EU fee revenue for England’s higher education sector was £3.9bn in 2016-17. Chinese students make up 31 per cent of overseas students, which implies an estimated £1.2bn of income, without adjusting for national variation in fees.

This loose estimate is greater than the entire surplus (revenues minus expenditures) generated by the English sector, which was £1.1bn in the 16/17 academic year down from £1.5bn the year previously. Total income for the sector was £29.9bn.
