111 Project First Release: Top 50 R&D Disciplines and Universities in China

China is not satisfied with the general methodology of international ranking systems, which tends to have a heavy focus on the overall quality of the whole university. As part of its ambition to develop a number of world quality R&D universities, the MoE has launched the 111 Project. This will aid in the development of such universities by providing support and resources on the basis of R&D discipline quality. The MoE and the Foreign Experts Bureau have jointly announced the first 50 Chinese universities to be included on the 111 list. The university evaluation process involved the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT), the Chinese Academy of Science (CAS), the National Civil Commission, and the Overseas Chinese Office under the National People’s Congress. The list includes disciplines from top universities across the country such as Peking University’s software department and Fudan University’s Continuous Diseases Prevention and Treatment department, as well as a number of lesser-known universities and their top R&D disciplines.

Chinese Universities With No Masters Exam Entrance Requirement

Up until this year, the MoE has provided a total of 366 Chinese universities the right to recommend students to study at the Master’s level without taking any exams. Most students are required to sit the national “Gaokao” exam to enter post-graduate study. In theory, between 5% and 15% of undergraduates can receive this “free-exam” recommendation, but in reality, only some universities are required to follow this set percentage while others can remove the exam for 70% or even 100% of the graduates in certain disciplines. Overall, the post-graduates who do not need to sit the national exam have better academic results than the cohort who have to sit.

MoE Approved Joint Programs List

Twenty-seven joint programs, including twenty-four at the Undergraduate level and three at the Master’s level, were approved by the MoE in the first half of 2017. Seven of them are located in Henan province, an under-developed inland province where many joint programs have previously failed. The vast majority of the programs are in STEM disciplines, with a few exceptions across the arts and languages fields. The Chinese universities involved include 2nd tier universities such as Zhengzhou University and Beijing S&T University, as well as lesser-known universities such as Yanbian University and Changchun Normal University, of which three are independent institutes. The US still takes the lead position with seven joint-programs involving US institutions. Other programs include universities from Canada, the UK, Australia, Singapore, Korea, and Europe. Notably, there are five European programs established with universities from Finland, Spain, Italy and Poland.
