City students happiest

ALTHOUGH only 39 percent of Shanghai's university freshmen feel satisfied with their chosen majors, they scored the highest satisfaction level among peers across the nation.

The latest survey by independent survey firm MyCOS HR Digital Information Co Ltd covered 2,579 students nationwide who began university studies in September, yesterday's Chengdu Business Daily reported.

Just 4 percent of Chinese students described their majors as satisfactory, with those studying bioengineering, traditional Chinese medicine and math the least happy.

Students majoring in architecture, economics and foreign languages expressed the highest satisfaction with their majors, citing good prospects for careers.

Overall, 35 percent of students expressed disappointment about their courses.

Beijing and Chongqing followed Shanghai, while southern China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region marked the lowest satisfaction level with a rate of 3 percent, the report said.

Difficulties in studying and problems of making friends were the main barriers to satisfy students, the survey found.
