Academics want Chinese postgraduates in Taiwan

CNA , TAIPEI

The Ministry of Education was urged yesterday to open the doors of Taiwan's universities to Chinese students for postgraduate studies to help solve problems that have plagued the country's higher education system.

At a news conference, a group of academics associated with the Taiwan Provincial Education Association and the Education Reconstruction Alliance urged the education ministry to allow Chinese college and university graduates to come to Taiwan to attend graduate school.

By allowing in Chinese students, they said, Taiwan can solve problems that have plagued the country's higher education system, including the fact that many universities have difficulty recruiting new students due to the large number of universities in the country.

Huang Kuang-kuo (黃光國), a professor at National Taiwan University said the government's "mass production of university graduates" in recent years has led to lower-quality graduates.
