World watch

November 13, 1998

Students from mainland China have enrolled at Hong Kong universities for the first time since the British handover in July 1997. Two Beijing high school leavers have enrolled at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and the Chinese University of Hong Kong. A maximum of 150 mainland students are to be allowed to study in Hong Kong in a three-year trial, but they must return after graduation. Students will do a preparatory year in written and spoken English.
