Policy transformation in China's Transnational Higher Education: Quality assurance and impacts

Research output: Other Conference ContributionsPresentation


Since the beginning of transnational education in mainland China, the government has launched a variety of policies on Sino-Foreign cooperative education to meet the social development and educational reform at different phases. Transnational education in China has experienced a trajectory from early exploration to quality building, demonstrating a shift from broad and quantitative approach to more focus and qualitative characteristics. However, the rapid growth of transnational education inevitably accompanied by several quality issues. Through a review of China's transnational education policies, this paper aims to analyze how the policy shift has affected the quality of instruction offered by Sino-Foreign universities and how these institutions have responded to the policy change by sustaining or enhancing the quality of teaching.
