If you're thinking of going abroad for your university education, then consider being one of the 14,000 American students studying in China after seeing the 'America, Meet China' infographic. Created by, the illustrated chart pits the two countries against each other to measure which offers the best schooling, from early childhood to undergraduate levels.

As the infographic explains, the release of the 2000 bestseller 'Harvard Girl' boosted the appeal of America's Ivy League schools to Chinese students (and inevitably, their parents), helping the number of Chinese students enrolled in American universities to reach over 127,000. This number, however, isn't proof that the USA educational system beats out China's, as the graph shows that Shanghai's 15-year-olds score higher in reading and mathematics than any other around the world. But no matter which nation viewers call home, the 'America, Meet China' infographic will provide some interesting tidbits and intercontinental competition facts before studying abroad.
