Top schools recruiting best brains from China

BEIJING (CHINA DAILY/ASIA NEWS NETWORK)- World-renowned universities, including the University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge, have come to China to attract top-notch postgraduate students in cooperation with the China Scholarship Council.

Oxford made its debut appearance at the China Scholarship Council's annual International Graduate Scholarship Fair, which opened on Saturday in Beijing. The school wants to encourage excellent Chinese students to consider what Oxford can offer for their academic and professional careers.

Jane Sherwood, director of graduate admissions and funding at Oxford, will make two more stops for the fair, on Oct 19 in Wuhan and on Oct 21 in Shanghai.

'The students I met showed full enthusiasm for their studies. They came well-prepared with specific questions and were serious about their research interests,' Sherwood said.
