Internationalising the university: the Chinese context

Tricia Coverdale-Jones (Editor), P. Rastall (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook


The Chinese Higher Education market is the biggest in the world. Chinese students are looking for education and training outside China in ever growing numbers and Chinese and western education providers are developing more and more partnerships. Western institutions have taken big strides in understanding the needs of their Chinese students and in adapting to this growing market. At the same time, Chinese institutions and their regulatory bodies are changing. Chinese students are becoming ever more discriminating. New forms of partnership and different relationships are needed to meet new circumstances and to develop the existing friendly cooperation to new levels. This volume brings together contributions from experts in this diverse and complex field and presents an up-to-date picture of thinking on internationalisation and its impact on Chinese and western institutions, their regulatory framework, motivations, aspirations, and quality assurance considerations. It links those issues to views of the student experience and constructive responses on curriculum development and teaching delivery. The work consists of new and original contributions from both Chinese and western writers and adds to our understanding of issues and of each other.
