Several legislators on Wednesday expressed concern about the rumor that China had put a ban against its students coming to Taiwan to study.

They were worried that if the ban is true, Taiwan’s colleges and universities will not have a collective annual income of NT$3.4 billion, which can hasten the closures of some financially stricken private schools.

In response to their concern, Deputy Minister of Education Lin Teng-chiao said that the places where the ban is rumored by the media to have been in force are not the primary sources of Chinese students, and the category of the ban is on “short-term students” instead of “degree-seeking students.”

However, Lin said the Ministry of Education (MOE) would check with its Chinese counterpart to find out if the rumored ban is true or not.     [FULL  STORY]
