China's graduate education is warned

(People's Daily Online)

08:12, December 18, 2012


Recently, media reported that a female doctoral student from Huazhong University of Science and Technology is put out of the game in a job application due to "inferior" undergraduate background.

For the job market, this approach does seem discriminative. But from another perspective, this is also an alert signal for the tendency of blind pursuit of high level of education.

In one survey, 38.2 percent of the respondents believe that the college entrance examination is more reliable in China but the cultivation of Master and Doctor in reality often falls short of its reputation.

In life, the sayings are also often heard such as "first-class undergraduate, second-class graduate student, and third-rate doctors". Why is it difficult for the high level of education to obtain corresponding recognition?

According to media reports, this year's number of students in planned enrollment of graduate school is over 580,000. Compared with the rapid expansion of the scale of enrollment, the teaching staff can hardly keep up pace. It is a common phenomenon that one mentor instructs more than a dozen graduate students.
