There are two types of English taught programs in China. First, there are international student English taught degree programs provided by local universities in China.

You can find a lot of information for English taught programs in China. Many of them are in fact never opened or had already closed due to lack of enrolled students. For instance, a university offers five majors in its English taught program. When they only have enough students to open one major, they will group all students into one major, it doesn’t matter if you like the new major or not.
Many of them are disorganized and won’t provide syllabuses. You have to be very carefully when applying to this type of program. Only few of them are able to meet international student expectations. Low tuition fee is one of main reasons why many students applying to this type of program.
