Taiwan's Fu Jen Catholic University opened an office in Beijing on Saturday to recruit more students from the Chinese mainland, reports the Xinhua news agency. Fu Jen has recruited 99 mainland students so far this year, exceeding its planned number of 40, said Liu Zhaoming, head of the university's office of academic affairs. The university plans to offer scholarships and give primary admission to students selected from prestigious high schools on the mainland starting from next year, according to a statement issued by the university on Saturday. This year, Taiwan began allowing students from six mainland provinces and municipalities - Beijing, Shanghai, Zhejiang, Jiangsu, Fujian and Guangdong - to study at the island's 100-plus universities and colleges.
