Abstract

This paper critically examines how university students in Hong Kong, Taipei and Guangzhou have perceived their social mobility and future career opportunities when these cities are experiencing expansion of higher education. Particular attention of the paper is to compare and contrast how university students / graduates assess and perceive the changing labour market needs and their evaluation of their social mobility opportunities in Greater China. This paper will also discuss policy implications when further expanding higher education in Greater China in the light of what has happened in Europe.
