Challenges and Opportunities Facing Australian Universities Caused by the Internationalisation of Chinese Higher Education
Wu, Mingxuan; Yu, Ping
International Education Journal, v7 n3 p211-221 2006
China opened its market to the world after it entered The World Trade Organisation (WTO) at the turn of the last century. The Chinese Ministry of Education recently reviewed a series of policies about international cooperation in higher education with foreign countries in an effort to standardise their practice through centralised control. The purpose of this paper is to analyse current features and trends in international cooperation in Chinese higher education. This paper also develops a benefit-driven model of the internationalisation of Chinese higher education, and attempts to address the reasons for the marketability of cooperative programs in China. Finally, this paper discusses the issues related to the internationalisation of Chinese higher education, and makes recommendations for Australian universities intending to enter the Chinese higher educational market successfully. (Contains 5 tables, 2 figures, and 1 footnote.)
