Chinese Education System
To be admitted to university, Chinese students need to take the 高考 gaokao; the National Entrance Examination.To take part in the entrance examination, students must have a senior middle school graduation certificate, sometimes also translated as ‘general secondary education certificate’ (gaozhong).
Higher education is offered at institutions that call themselves ‘university’, ‘college’ or ‘school’. These include degree-awarding institutions (including several hundred research institutes), specialised institutions, professional universities, military institutions, medical schools and colleges (both regular and military), and executive training schools, which train staff for state-run companies and ministries.
Institutions that operate directly under the supervision of the Ministry of Education are the most prestigious (such as Peking University and Tsinghua University). The concepts of ‘college’ (学院 xueyuan) and ‘university’ (大学 daxue) are sometimes used interchangeably, yet ‘college’ usually implies a less prestigious institution than a university. The Chinese word for ‘university' (大学 daxue) is sometimes also translated as 'college'.
