Abstract


The internationalization of graduate education has expanded over the last decades. Numbers of students, teaching staff and researchers that engage in cross-border mobility are increasing and institutional activities for internationalization have become more elaborate. Graduate education internationalization is the foundation and both the path and one of the goals of China’s “Double-First Class” initiative. We did a survey in 38 universities and institutions in Shandong province from 2014-2016 in order to get the picture of internationalization of graduate education and draw up a plan for further development. The result suggests that the internationalization degree of graduate education is still at a low level. A systematic framework is provided to improve the international talent cultivation of graduate students.
