Taipei, May 16 (CNA) Taiwan will gradually lift its restrictions on Chinese
students studying at its schools, the head of the Straits Exchange Foundation (SEF) said Saturday.
Lin Join-sane (林中森) was referring to the “three restrictions and six noes” that have been in effect since 2011, when Taiwan first opened its universities to Chinese students.
The restrictions on Chinese students have to do with the schools from which they are accepted, the departments in Taiwanese universities in which they can enroll, and number of Chinese students allowed to study in Taiwan.
The “six noes” refer to actions that are not allowed, namely preferential grading on entrance exams, awarding of scholarships, change in Taiwanese student enrollment openings, part-time jobs, sitting of licensing examinations, and remaining in Taiwan after graduation. [FULL STORY]
