When taking part in Second UK
International Education Conference, Mr. Jiang Feng, Deputy Director of
Department of International Cooperation and Exchange, Ministry of
Education, China, said that, China was an open country, and also in the
education system of China, therefore, we warmly welcome superior
institutions to cooperatively run schools with universities in China.
When interviewed by the journalist of
Xinhua News Agency, Mr. Jiang said：“we encourage students to go study
abroad, meanwhile, we also hope foreign universities to cooperatively
run schools in China.
We now emphasize on high quality education, and according to the Regulations of the People’s Republic of China on Chinese-Foreign Cooperation in Running Schools stipulated in 2003, we encourage foreign high quality institutions to cooperatively run schools in China. ”
He specially emphasized that higher
education institutions in China and foreign countries shall
cooperatively educate doctors and masters, jointly formulate
international courses, and encourage recognition credit.
He thought that, nowadays, some foreign
universities were two commercialized. If paying too much attention on
commercialization and profit, education institutions will not fulfill
high quality when cooperatively running schools in China. While,
Ministry of Education, China, cared about this issue very much.
Mr. Jiang Feng spoke out some
suggestions about supervision on quality of education in Chinese-foreign
cooperatively-run schools. In his opinion, the first importance thing
is, education institutions who carry out cooperation in running schools
in China must be selected according to Chinese-Foreign Cooperation in Running Schools,
and be managed in pursuant to the law; second, establish quality
platform: in the past, some students were tricked when going study
abroad, therefore, the Ministry of Education, China, has established
early warning system about going study abroad on one’s own expenses;
third, establish a information platform: we publish qualified
Chinese-foreign Cooperatively-run Schools approved by the government to
be selected by students.
He said, international education
cooperation is mutual. As you know, there were about 100,000 students
who went study abroad every year, and more and more foreign students
came to china, for your information, there were 140,000 foreign students
who came to study in China. Nowadays, China is a very important
destination of overseas study.
