In response to the trend of globalization and internationalization, the Chinese government opened the education market to allow foreign institutions to operate in the Educational Service Trade, especially in higher education. As a result, a significant number of joint education programs between China and Canada came into being in the last decade. The “2＋2” Type, which is considered a typical mode, is the focus of this study. The aim of this research is to understand perspectives, expectations, and experiences of Chinese students who are participating in “2+2” joint programs at Canadian Universities. The research was conducted with eight participants who were enrolled in the “2+2” joint programs of the China University of Petroleum. Surveys and interviews were employed for data collection. The findings provide useful suggestions for “2+2” joint programs students and administrators of cooperative universities; thus, such programs can be promoted and improved in the future.
