BEIJING, July 18 -- Twenty foreign master's students from 16 countries have graduated from the Air Force Command College, marking the first time a Chinese military academy has awarded master's degrees to overseas students.
The college, which was approved to admit overseas applicants to pursue master's degrees in 2012, provides two-year multilingual education in five specialties. The languages of instruction include English, French and Russian.
Foreign candidates need to pass a qualification examination, course assessment, Chinese language testing and thesis defense in order to obtain master's degrees.
The Beijing-based Air Force Command College, established in 1958, is China's elite academy to cultivate air force officers.
