Overseas campuses (again), though with a focus on challenges in China

The overseas campuses theme is receiving a lot of attention this week. As we noted two days ago, the New York Times is running a series that primarily focuses on American campuses in the Middle East.

Inside Higher Ed has just posted a lengthy story (‘The phantom campus in China‘) regarding the grand ambitions, and practical realities, of establishing relatively deep institutional presences in China. The story is well worth reading, though in conjunction with our coverage of University of Nottingham and University of Liverpool ventures in China, as well as Daniel Bell’s guest contribution from Tsinghua University (‘To link or not to link? On linkages between Western and Chinese universities‘).
