ChinaEdu Forms Joint Venture With Beijing Forestry University

BEIJING, CHINA – March 19, 2008 – ChinaEdu Corporation (NASDAQ: CEDU), an  educational services provider in China (“ChinaEdu” or the “Company”), announced today that it  has entered into an exclusive 20-year joint venture agreement with Beijing Forestry University  (“BFU” or the “University”) to provide online education services to the University. BFU is  ChinaEdu’s 12th long-term partner in adult online education services.

One of the national universities under the Ministry of Education in China, Beijing Forestry  University provides advanced education in the studies of forestry and ecology. The University is  actively seeking approval from Ministry of Education in China to offer online degree programs.  In the interim, the joint venture will actively explore opportunities to provide specialized training  services to workers in environmentally-focused industries.

BFU was one of the first universities to be accepted into the "211 Project", a major initiative  sponsored and funded by the Chinese government which aims to strengthen approximately 100  institutions of higher education in China in the 21st century. This important project is  specifically geared toward the development of higher education programs in disciplines that will  help facilitate China's social and economic advancement.

Ms. Julia Huang, Chief Executive Officer of ChinaEdu, said, “We are delighted to form a  strategic partnership with Beijing Forestry University, a leading University engaged in the  forestry and environmental fields. BFU is an ideal strategic partner for ChinaEdu’s online  education services as the work force in the industries it covers are geographically dispersed  across China and therefore highly suitable for distance education. Also, due to the increasing  demand for greater environmental protection standards in China, I believe that the University's  unique offerings will attract enormous interest.”

“We expect this joint venture to help us grow our core business, and expand our online degree  program offerings. We believe that our partnership with a reputable institution such as BFU  speaks to our position as a market leader in providing online degree programs,” Ms. Huang  remarked.

In addition to Beijing Forestry University, the Company has strategic relationships with eleven  other universities to operate online degree programs, nine of which are under long-term,  exclusive contracts that range from 15 to 50 years in length. In the third quarter of 2007, online  degree programs accounted for 81% of the Company's revenues.
