Now, China allows foreigners to take up part-time jobs

China sees the rise of the foreign students as part of its diplomatic push to increase its global influence.

Beijing: China will allow foreign students at Chinese universities to take part-time jobs during their studies to make the country’s higher educational system attractive, reports said on Tuesday.

The government has introduced several exploratory changes allowing international students in Beijing and Shanghai to take part-time jobs if they obtain approval from their academic institutions and the entry and exit administrative authorities.

Over 4.42 lakh foreign students from 205 countries reported to have studied in China’s schools and other education institutions in 2016, and about 15,000 Indian students study in China.
