Nine universities set up China's 'Ivy League'

STUDENTS from China's nine top universities will have a chance to take courses on other campuses after the schools set up their own "Ivy League" group.

The Chinese league, named C9, includes Peking University, Tsinghua University, Zhejiang University, Fudan University, Shanghai Jiaotong University, Haerbin Institute of Techonology, Nanjing University, Xi'an Jiaotong University and China Science & Technology University.

Students of the schools can transfer between the nine institutes and their grades and credits will be recognized by league members.

The nine schools will also use high technology to enhance communications among campuses. Courses led by selected professors will be videotaped and put on the Internet, and regular long-distance seminars will be held by the principals.

The nine universities have also set up shared postgraduate courses. The C9 group will also enhance communications with elite foreign educational organizations such as the American Ivy League and Australian G8.
