During the past decade, transnational education has grown rapidly and become a key initiative of internationalization of higher education.
In China, one of the main forms of transnational education is Chinese-foreign Cooperation in Running Schools (CFCRS).
In May 2017, there were 2545 CFCRS institutions and programs approved by the Chinese government.
There are about 560,000 CFCRS students nationwide, among which 460,000 are in higher education, while graduate numbers have exceeded 1.6 million.
CFCRS has attracted more and more attention, and related studies have been increasing over the years.
This book contains a comprehensive introduction and in-depth study on CFCRS; and includes comparative studies on the development of international branch campuses of several countries.
This volume was originally published as a special issue of Chinese Education and Societies.
