China’s Ministry of Education to revamp undergraduate studies

November 4, 2019

BEIJING  China's Ministry of Education has called for a three-year revamp of the higher education system, aiming to devote vast resources to undergraduate studies, including the expertise of those who are part of the Thousand Talents Programme, a Government-backed project which seeks to recruit scientific talent from foreign countries to work in China.

By 2021, the Ministry wants 10,000 national-level courses and 10,000 provincial-level courses of "top quality" taught online, offline, via virtual reality and in practical settings.

Those courses will be designed by "high level talent", drawing on experts such as those from the Thousand Talents Programme, with the new courses to be evaluated annually by the Ministry. (ATI)
