DURHAM, N.H. (AP) — The University of New Hampshire has unveiled a new program designed to attract Chinese students with high scores on a national exam in China.
The rigorous assessment, the gaokao, is the nation’s college entrance exam administered in June over two days. Nearly 10 million students registered to take the exam this year.
Chinese high school graduates would have to submit their gaokao scores, take an English test, undergo a video interview and submit their transcripts.
UNH spokeswoman Erika Mantz said the initiative is part of the school’s commitment to drawing more outstanding international applicants.
The total Chinese student population at the university is 357.
UNH hopes to streamline the application process for the students working with the program so they can begin in January, instead of waiting a full year.
