Abstract

The internationalization of higher education is the most remarkable phenomenon taking place in the education system in China in the third millennium. Based on the assumption that the internationalization of higher education in China is not a current happening incurred by globalization but one that is inherent in the process of the development of higher education and the state, this paper attempts to explore the long tradition of the recent internationalization of higher education in China and its relationship with the state building and national modernization from the historical perspective. The various documentary sources, including primary sources and historical studies, are analyzed to examine the internationalization of higher education in the context of China's political, economic and cultural/social development. The study provides a holistic and general illustration of the internationalization of higher education that is observed in China, and highlights the state's leadership of the Chinese internationalization of higher education in the era of globalization.
