Accordingly, in the next six years, all university graduates will satisfy the prescribed standards for graduation and have good command of foreign languages, computer and soft skills so that they will be ready for their future employment.
As for educational quality, all university lecturers will possess master’s or higher degree, of whom 35 percent will have doctor’s degree. All universities will have their education quality accredited, 10 percent of which will be accredited by prestigious foreign education accreditation organizations.
The Scheme also sets the target that at least 35 percent of university training programs will be accredited by domestic or foreign organizations, while all teacher-training programs will be accredited.
All universities will be able to use training programs and materials shared online by prestigious universities around the world, and can design their own training contents up to the requirements of socio-economic development and labor market.
In the coming time, greater autonomy will be given to universities, educational administration will be reformed in combination with application of effective management and supervision mechanisms; the higher education will be internationalized, and a system for information collection, analysis and forecasting of supply and demand of highly qualified human resources will be built.
In addition, mechanisms and policies will be formulated to create a sound competitive environment for high education development.
Modern practice centers and laboratories will be built for common use by universities. An international university complex will be built to attract foreign prestigious universities for joint training and research.- (VLLF)
