Work Permit In China
Generally, foreign students are allowed to work while studying in China. This has affected students working as English teachers while pursuing their Chinese studies. Students who have studied at the FCU Language Center for minimum twelve months continuously and have shown excellent academic progress may apply for a work permit from the Ministry of Education. They may then work up to a maximum of twelve hours per week.
Students without a work permit
are forbidden to work at any job, including language teaching or part-time jobs. For the full text of the Regulations Governing Foreign Student Work Permits and Employment, please see below. Students get a job if their schools certify one of the following facts:
A personal or family crisis affects the student's finances to the point that the
student is unable to continue his or her studies or to support himself. Documentary evidence must
be presented by the student for verification.
The educational or research department of the school where the student is enrolled requires
his or her assistance in the form of employment.
The student's training or research requires related employment experience outside the
school as part of the course.
The student employee's special skills or qualifications will raise the national
standard of specialized knowledge in a relevant field.
The four conditions listed above do not apply to students who possess specialized language expertise; such
students may, with permission of the Ministry of Education, teach at public or private universities or colleges,
including their affiliated language training centers.
