China gets an Australian education

The Chinese continue to develop their connections with the educational Anglosphere. Says People's Daily:

The Chinese Ministry of Education has signed an agreement with the IDP Education Australia to collaborate on a number of programs.

The programs include holding university preparatory courses in China approved by 38 Australian universities, and establishing joint courses between the two countries. The plan will help Chinese college students transfer to Australian universities for further study.

Meanwhile, both sides are cooperating to develop training courses and projects for Chinese government employees and company managers.

I know, I know, it's all very clumsy and government-to-government. And the link to Australia is somewhat comical. But I think this stuff is interesting. What the enormous numbers of Chinese students now studying abroad or being educated in China by foreigners get up to in their lives is going to be one of the world's great stories, however it plays out, of the next fifty years.
