Chinese university to increase foreign enrollment

August 31, 2010

Tsinghua University, one of China's top universities, will increase its number of foreign graduate students as Beijing plans to use education and other "soft power" initiatives to promote its image abroad.

Tsinghua will have about 1,000 foreign students enrolled in its master's and doctoral programs this year. In 2004, there were 205 foreign students.

Other Chinese universities including Peking University also are recruiting more foreign students.

In 2009, 240,000 foreign students studied in universities across China, according to the Ministry of Education, a huge jump from 52,000 students in 2000.
