Higher Education Studies, v2 n2 p107-113 Jun 2012
As a crucial component of higher education system, the models of student admissions differ worldwide due to diverse historical, traditional, and cultural factors. This paper presents a documentary study which seeks to identify some key developmental milestones of access to higher education in China. The paper begins with an outline history of the evolvement of admission system from the imperial era to the present. Subsequently, some reforms and issues of enrolment approaches at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels are discussed. Finally, the primary characteristics of the higher education enrolment system are proposed. Overall, this paper is expected to offer some insights into the development of current admission trends and an orientation on which Chinese policy-makers and educational administrators may wish to focus their efforts.
