This qualitative study, applying in-depth interview and push-pull theory, analyzed the factors influencing Chinese students’ choices to attend international branch campuses (IBCs) in China. The results showed that the pull factors can be found from admission policies, pedagogical characteristics, and postgraduation issues, while the push factors are caused by China’s higher education entrance examination. This study also discussed the reverse-push and reverse-pull factors, finding that the overseas universities tend to have a pull force that attracting Chinese students to leave IBCs, and factors like social recognition and course arrangement may discourage Chinese students to attend IBCs.
