A new report published by the Boarding Schools’ Association (BSA) in the UK has found satisfaction from Chinese parents with institutions’ handling of Covid-19 and determination to continue with study plans, as well as the importance of agents and guardianship organisations.

The report was produced by the Boarding Schools’ Association in partnership with the British Council China and UK and China education specialist Connexcel, and is based on the responses of 880 families of Chinese students currently at or due to start at UK boarding schools.
