Journalist from Fujian Southeast Satellite TV: Please briefly introduce the situation of Taiwanese students studying in mainland universities.
Wang Zhiwei: The Ministry of Education warmly welcomes Taiwanese young people to come to the mainland to study, and to this end, we continue to create a good policy environment. In 2017, the Ministry of Education issued a policy to expand the "study test" scores of Taiwanese students in mainland universities from above "pre-standard" and relax to "average-standard", further opening the door for Taiwanese youth to study in the mainland. In January 2019, the Ministry of Education adjusted its policy to allow Taiwan's freshman high school graduates in any of the three subjects in Chinese, Mathematics, and English to have a "study test" score of "average standard grade" or higher and be eligible to apply for admission to mainland universities. This policy covers more than 60% of recent high school graduates in Taiwan. In addition, in order to allow Taiwanese businessmen's children to have more opportunities to receive high-quality higher vocational education in mainland China, the Ministry of Education encourages Taiwanese businessmen who have obtained high school and secondary vocational school diplomas in mainland China to take the classification test of higher vocational colleges and recruit students.
Over the past two years, the enthusiasm of Taiwanese students to apply for colleges and universities in mainland China has continued to increase. Currently, more than 12,000 Taiwanese students have studied in mainland colleges and universities. When we communicated with our classmates in Taiwan, they said that the colleges and universities in mainland China are like "dream campuses." Schools and teachers are very caring for them, and they feel the warmth like family.
In the next step, the Ministry of Education will further expand the range of colleges and universities that recruit Taiwanese students, optimize the layout of colleges and majors, and better meet the needs of Taiwanese students who come to universities in the mainland to create more and better learning opportunities and good learning for them. surroundings.
