Comparision on Higher Education between China and Germany


German higher education has always enjoyed good reputation worldwide. At present, there are nearly 400 public and private universities in Germany, most of them meet very high academic standards and possess modern teaching methods. China's higher education is large in scale, and the number of students ranks first in the world. In recent years, China has cultivated a large number of qualified and outstanding graduates, hence supported its rapid economic development and great social progress. What are the similarities and differences of studying in Chinese and German universities? What are the root causes for them? How can the two countries learn from each other? How is the situation of the Chinese/German students who are studying in Germany/China? What are their pains and gains? We have invited several students, who had studied at universities both in China and Germany, to discuss these topics and share their opinions and personal experiences. Moreover, we have made some suggestions to the people who want to study in Germany/China.
