Dutch universities have been going at it for a number of years already in China. Now top universities in China are starting a counteroffensive to get Dutch students to join their English-language master’s programmes.
The University of Groningen is already in an advanced stage of cooperation: it opened a Dutch Studies Centre for Chinese students at the Fudan University this year. There are also plans for a Chinese Studies Centre in Groningen. The Dutch programme in China focuses on Dutch politics, economics, culture and history. The Chinese programme in Groningen will concentrate on modern China. / HOP, SvO
