about this publication

Abstract: This article aims at exploring the role of continuing higher education in the educational endeavour and the teaching structure of a research-based university and the education philosophy it entails, with reference to the reform and development of continuing education service at Tsinghua University, China, in a decade. Through examining the education opportunities not leading to academic qualifications that Tsinghua University has offered and examples in this aspect, the authors explain how the university tackled a timely reform and maximises its various potentials as continuing education plays an increasingly important role in national progress and social development, as well as the striving for excellence by universities themselves. An account will also be given on the efforts made by Tsinghua University in managing and branding its continuing education service, as well as the lessons learnt in the process.
