A new university every week – in China

By Andreas Schleicher, BBC News – in University World News.

China has been building the equivalent of almost one university per week – part of a silent revolution that is causing a huge shift in the composition of the world’s population of graduates, writes Andreas Schleicher for BBC News.

In terms of producing graduates, China has overtaken the United States and the combined university systems of European Union countries, and the gap is going to become even wider. Even modest predictions see the number of 25 to 34 year-old graduates in China rising by a further 300% by 2030, compared with an increase of around 30% expected in Europe and the United States.
