This project is aimed at helping Chinese citizens who intend to study abroad collect the information they need to succeed, in spite of national Internet blocks. I was especially concerned with helping students obtain academic information. The essence of this dilemma is one of access, a question that has become even more critical in light of the 2017 Chinese government ban on all VPN services.
As a possible solution I created the StudyAbroadEasier website, which serves as both a search engine and consulting platform. The site will be launched in China, so that citizens will have ready access to the information contained within the service.
