China Education News    

In the last few years, about 2,000 Taiwan students have applied to go to the Chinese mainland for postgraduate studies each year, and 40 to 50 percent of them are accepted, according to the island’s China Tide Association.
According to the association, the most popular fields of interest for Taiwan students are economics, management and medicine. In recent years, China has adopted a set of new policies to give Taiwan students the same status as mainland students to attract them to study in the mainland’s post secondary institutions, for example, Taiwan students pay the same tuition and boarding fees as their mainland peers as of September 2005.
