Since China is becoming the third most popular country for overseas students to pursue further studies, Shanghai, a bustling cosmopolitan city, has long been among their top choices.

China Association for International Education (CAFSA) joined hands with a group of local universities and colleges on Jan 7-9, to seek inspirations on the sound and sustainable development of education for overseas students.

The three-day seminar saw experts and participants co-working on a variety of subjects, such as the admissions work, laws and regulations, entry and exit administration, insurance, and emergency prevention.

The participants were not only introduced to detailed explanations of student management affairs, but also had their questions answered, problems solved, and learned from their fellow partners.

"The management for overseas education in China has entered a transitional period, we should stick to the principle of developing scale and quality at the same pace, and strive hard to build a team with professional management capabilities," Yu said.

The local East China Normal University also contributed to the smooth running of the seminar.
