An increasing number of young foreigners are willing to study in China to understand and experience China on the spot for the last few years. Numerous researchers focused on international students in China. This paper applied the principles of behavioral economics to analyze the decision-making behaviors of international students choosing China as the destination for study. The purpose of the paper is to improve understanding of how international students were influenced by different choice or judgment means. The primary data were collected through surveys in a higher education institution in China and analyzed by the sequential description and explanatory analysis. The behaviors of International students selecting higher education institution abroad were probably influenced by parental education experiences. The comprehension of key elements affecting the student selection to study abroad can guide the admission strategy optimization of China and Chinese education institutions. Most international students prefer to obtain opinions from trustworthy individuals they believe in decision-making processes.
