However, the survey found that their internationalization competence and level are significantly different from those don’t suffer financial difficulties students. This study proposed that the internationalization competence and level of poverty-stricken students in China’s higher education can be improved from five aspects: strengthening top-level design, policy support of colleges and universities, precision funding measures, broadening the extension of funding education, and setting an example. Only in this way can we better realize the combination of poverty alleviation and ambition promotion of college students, further promote the fair development of higher education, continuously improve the quality of higher education, and truly realize the education goal of cultivating people with morality.
