The Internationalization of Higher Education in China

Xinran Liao, Inmaculada Egido Gálvez


In the context of economic globalization, the internationalization of higher education appears as a tendency that is modifying the educational reform agendas at this level in all countries. In the case of China, the policies adopted in recent years have been focused to expand the level of internationalization of higher institutions, but there are still few studies that analyse in depth this topic. This article seeks to contribute to the knowledge of this question through the review of regulations, official statistics and literature on the process of internationalization of higher education in this country. The review of the current situation of the process makes it possible to detect some successes in recent years, but also reveals the existence of problems, so it could raise some proposals for the future development of policies in this area.
