BEIJING, Aug. 1 (Xinhua) -- Here are the highlights of education news in China from the past week:

-- China to have over 3 mln master's degree students on campus

More than three million students in China will be pursuing their master's degree in 2020, a humongous rise from 629 in 1949.

China has established a subject system with 111 first-class disciplines and 47 professional degree categories, basically covering all fields of national economic and social development.

In 1990, only 19.6 percent of full-time teachers in China's colleges and universities had a master's degree, while the number has reached 64.1 percent in 2020.

-- China to recruit more non-commissioned officers from college graduates

China is recruiting more non-commissioned officers directly from college graduates, according to a circular issued by the military authority.

This year's recruitment, set to run from Aug. 1 to Sept. 30, will open to college graduates in 64 clusters of majors, including computer science, automation, and machinery.

-- China's universities for aged to have unified textbooks

China's universities for the aged will have unified textbooks by the end of the year, according to the China Association of the Universities for the Aged.

Such universities are becoming more and more popular among China's elderly people, but they are yet to share unified national textbooks, and the courses on general knowledge are inadequate and of varied quality. Enditem
