A significant majority of the House of Representatives voted on Thursday 23 February in favour of a change to the Higher Education and Research Act (WHW) to promote internationalization. The Board of the University (CvB) is delighted with the support of the House of Representatives.
The next step will be presentation of the modified Act to the Senate. The Minister of Education, Culture and Science will then draw up an Order in Council (AMvB; Algemene Maatregel van Bestuur) that will regulate implementation of the Act. The AMvB will probably be discussed by the House of Representatives in the summer. After approval of the AMvB, and after the participation councils and the Supervisory Board have exercised their right of consent, the CvB will make a definitive decision about founding a branch campus in Yantai. A request to this end will be submitted to the Minister of Education, Culture and Science.
The University of Groningen wants to be the first Dutch university to open a branch campus in China. In collaboration with China Agricultural University, Beijing, the University plans to establish the University of Groningen Yantai.
Stephan van Galen explains the chances created by a branch campus in China.
