Recognition of more Chinese diplomas on the cards

Taiwan is mulling recognising diplomas from more Chinese universities, President Ma Ying-jeou said last week, as some institutions anticipated that doing so could result in more Chinese studying in the country, reports Focus Taiwan.

Speaking at the opening of the 2013 National Conference of University and College Presidents at Fo Guang University, Ma said his administration was planning to expand the number of Chinese universities accredited in Taiwan from the current 41 to 112.

Under the plan, the 112 Chinese universities covered by China's 1998 world-class universities development programme announced by then-president Jiang Zemin will be accredited. Ma said his administration was also considering allowing Chinese students to enrol at local two-year colleges, to increase the number of overseas students in local colleges.
