MoE cleans house and steps up supervision over Sino-foreign cooperative education programs and institutions
02 February 2015
In October 2014, the Ministry of Education of the People’s Republic of China ("MoE") publicly revoked the approval of 246 existing Sino-foreign cooperative education programs and institutions below undergraduate degree level. This, and other MoE issued reports, opinions and actions, indicate MoE's desire to tighten supervision over joint programs and institutions in order to better address its concerns regarding the quality of such programs and institutions. In short, MoE is engaging in a major house-cleaning exercise.
