The Development and Challenges of Higher Education in China

Abstract

With the gross enrollment rate of higher education in China having increased by 12.7% since 2012, China's higher education has entered a new era of development. In light of China's great achievement in recent years, the regional report will give a detailed account of the latest developments in higher education, the background of China's "Double First-Class" (world-class universities and first-class disciplines)construction, and the situation of the modern higher education system with Chinese characteristics.

The report will also illustrate how universities set up their own strategic development plans in the pursuit of "Double First-Class" by taking Renmin University of China as an example.
