PUTRAJAYA: China has formally recognised 71 local universities and university colleges where some 10,000 of its nationals are currently studying in.
Deputy Higher Education Minister Datuk Dr Hou Kok Chung (pix) said the recognition followed an agreement signed by both countries in 2011.
"The agreement only covers institutions that offer degree-level courses.
"As a number of institutions have been upgraded to universities or university colleges, we will send them an updated list of institutions (to be recognised) by end of the month," he told reporters.
