Beijing: China is considering the establishment of its first counter-terrorism college in Xi’an, the capital city of Shaanxi province, a media report said on Monday.
The college, affiliated to the Northwest University of Politics and Law, will offer counter-terrorism courses to undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as doctoral students to foster highly specialised expertise in the counter-terrorism field, China Radio International reported.
The recruitment will be nationwide and law undergraduates are preferred. Preparations are reportedly underway.
China’s top legislature adopted the country’s first counter-terrorism law earlier last month and the law came into effect on January 1.
As one of the top law schools in China, the Northwest University of Politics and Law leads the country’s counter-terrorism study.
