[photopress:MBA_postfraduate.jpg,full,alignright]China’s Ministry of Education has raised the ethnic minorities quota for postgraduate places from 3,700 this year to 4,200 in 2008.
The quotas comprises 3,400 master’s degree places and 800 doctoral places.
Young people from ethnic minorities with a bachelor’s degree, will take a standard national exam, but enjoy a different enrollment policy with a relatively lower mark.
71 universities are on the list, but the program will mainly cover those applying for normal schools and schools of information technology, sciences, medicine, finance, traditional ethnic arts and public management.
Those enrolled will be exempted from tuition fees, but must sign a contract with the government promising to return to their hometowns for employment after graduation.
Last year China’s universities enrolled up to 420,000 students in postgraduate courses.
