KPMG's recent ‘Education in China’ report provides some remarkable statistics about the country's education system. Between 2001 and 2009, the number of graduates in China increased six times from 1.1 million to 6.1 million, and it is estimated that 7.6 million students will graduate in 2011. Degree holders now make up 7.4 per cent of the total population, and in 2009 the Chinese government spent RMB 198 billion on the education sector – 4.5 per cent of total government expenditure for that year. This surely indicates ample opportunities for UK companies to become involved in the education sector.

CBBC and TVET UK also plan to take a delegation to China in October. While each city is experiencing different pressures on its vocational education system, the sector as a whole faces the same issue. Namely, it is unable to keep up with China’s rapid economic growth.

Higher education has, in a very fundamental way, always been globalised. Ideas and scholars have to respect borders, but are not deterred by them. Border measures, which restrict the international exchange of goods and services the world over, have little impact. There has never been a better time to ship ideas around the world.
