Study in China
Study in China is becoming fascinating for the students. Chinese Business schools are growing day by day.
Study Visa Process in China
Visa Issued to foreigners who come to China for study or intern practice for a period of six months or above.
Student visa is usually issued for single entry only. The duration of stay varies.
X visa will be issued to those who are required to study for 10 months or more.
F visa will be issued to those who are required to study for less than 10 months.
Students who will be studying for less than one year may be able to apply for a business f-visa rather than the x-visa. If the course of study is for one year, a physical examination form is required.
If you wish to extend your study visa while in China, it may not be possible to change a f-visa to a
x-visa once you have arrived in China. Therefore, you will need to check with your host institution as
many provinces have recently changed their in-country visa conversion policies. Call us for rush service.
Student Study Abroad Visas require original documentation to be sent to the applicant by the host institution.
In order to process your student X-visa properly you should apply to your study abroad program early to allow them time for mailing these documents. There are two common services for student visas, Regular Processing Service (5-7 days) and Rush Service (48 Hours).

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.
