The Moodle Education Association released a survey in May showing more than 90% of Taiwanese university presidents believe that students from the mainland should be allowed to study in Taiwan. About 200,000 Chinese students are studying abroad.
Taiwan has been trying to catch up with the global trend to attract students from the mainland. The government has decided to allow the students to gain admission to Taiwan universities and to recognize their education credentials from universities on the mainland starting next year.
Taiwan Minister of Education Cheng Jei-cheng said the number of students from the mainland will be capped at under 1% of university vacancies with no scholarships available.
