Ministry of Education: Post-graduate Study Should Be Open to Mainland Students Next Year
From The Liberty Times:
[Central News Agency] Deputy Minister of Education Lu Muling says, if the legislature is able to complete legal revision on university, professional studies, and cross-strait civic interaction, mainland students should be able to come to Taiwan for master’s and PhD classes next spring.
Lu Muling clarified the issues around mainland students studying in Taiwan during a press conference.
As to undergraduate study, Lu says that has to wait until next fall.
Enrollment will gradually expand, with yearly cap of 2,000; Ministry of Education will form a committee to accept school’s plan for accepting mainland students. Once approved by the committee they can start admission.
Lu stresses that, mainland student enrollments are extra allocations that will not compete with local students. Also the 2,000 head count is small compared to 30,000 foreign and expat students.
