New China degree takes each way bet

12 September 2012

Prof Hans Hendrischke, member of the China Studies Centre, commented on the centre's upcoming degree, the Master of China Public Administration to the Australian.

"It's a structurally bilingual degree, something we put together because we didn't have it anywhere else,'' said Hans Hendrischke.

"We wanted to have a degree where you have a language component for the whole cohort.

"So, whether you have Chinese people coming in with their language background or people who don't speak Chinese, we have provision for both groups.''

"In the long-term, what we are planning is to have a mixed cohort (of students), where they use that degree as a networking structure, to be embedded with a group of people from the other country,'' he said.
