Higher Education Reform in China: Beyond the Expansion

Morgan, J. W. & Bin, W. (Eds.). Higher Education Reform in China: Beyond the Expansion. Routledge, Abingdon, 2011. ISBN: 978-0-415-56413-7. Pages: 178.

The newest publication of Routledge’s China Policy series examines the large-scale, decade-long expansion of China’s higher education system. Moreover, the book highlights some of the challenges China must face regarding the development and sustainability of its higher education sector in this historic period of expansion from an elite to a mass system.

The book includes analyses and critiques of such topics as:

  • the regional division of higher education within China,
  • lifelong learning,
  • private higher education,
  • labour market outcomes for graduates of Chinese universities and
  • implications of the export of Chinese students, with Australia as a case study.
