“Only by work­ing hard can they im­prove and com­pete with oth­ers. Then again, that’s the same for all stu­dents, no mat­ter what kind of pro­gram they used to study abroad.”

Jiang at Nan­jing Univer­sity also said it can be hard for foun­da­tion course stu­dents to set­tle into a for­eign cam­pus, in­clud­ing in the US. “It’s like we can’t re­ally fully be in­volved,” she said.

She said many peo­ple who choose this route feel that col­leges in China and over­seas see the foun­da­tion cour­ses as in­de­pen­dent, and the stu­dents en­rolled as some­how dif­fer­ent from the oth­ers on cam­pus.

“We re­ally hope that the univer­si­ties can do more to co­op­er­ate more closely, so that we can have a real taste of univer­sity life in both coun­tries,” Jiang added. Yan Dongjie con­trib­uted to this story.
