The Double World Class Project: Unequal Opportunities of Postgraduate Entrance in China 

In 2015, the Chinese State Council initiated a project to lift the status and international competitiveness of China’s higher education system. This “Double World Class” project supports elite universities in 100 disciplines. Recognizing that China needs a differentiated higher education system, the government is encouraging universities to exploit their advantages. Funding will be concentrated among those departments and schools close to becoming world-class, those seeking to address socio-economic needs, and those focused on emerging and interdisciplinary subjects. This talk discusses findings from a quantitative study on the Double World Class project as well as offers suggestions for enhancing postgraduate studies in Chinese higher education.
