The cost of studying in China has a large difference between the disciplines as well as the location of the schools. When planning to study abroad, you should determine carefully what industry you will study, and where you will be because it will help you know how much a year you need for the cost of living in this country.
To reduce the financial burden on your family, you can either study while working or “hunt” for a Chinese scholarship. However, whatever you choose to choose, you should prioritize studying and earning a degree. According to my experience of studying abroad in China of previous Vietnamese students, the study program in this country is quite heavy, so few students here go to work.
