Poli­cies help ru­ral col­lege can­di­dates

China Daily European Weekly - - News Digest -

Chi­nese col­leges and uni­ver­si­ties have ad­mit­ted 100,000 stu­dents from ru­ral and un­der­de­vel­oped ar­eas this year, a 9.3 per­cent in­crease over 2016, ac­cord­ing to the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion. The coun­try has im­ple­mented fa­vor­able col­lege en­trance poli­cies, in­clud­ing en­roll­ment pro­grams at na­tional, re­gional and uni­ver­sity lev­els, to en­able more stu­dents from ru­ral and poor ar­eas to get a uni­ver­sity ed­u­ca­tion. In the na­tional pro­gram, the re­quire­ments to be ac­cepted at key col­leges and uni­ver­si­ties — those af­fil­i­ated with cen­tral min­istries and provin­cial gov­ern­ments — have been low­ered for stu­dents from im­pov­er­ished coun­ties.
