Strict New Rules For Foreign Students in China


The Chinese government has announced on Monday that foreign students pursuing higher education programs must take compulsory courses beginning next month.

According to the new regulations, universities and colleges must teach international students Chinese laws, culture and language. Those majoring in philosophy and politics must also learn certain political theories, South China Morning Post reported.

Schools must also provide international students with “instructors” which, as told by the outlet, follow the practice of hiring “political instructors” for Chinese students. The latter are responsible for political education and ideological influence.

Instructors of international students, on the other hand, are required to “understand [the students’] needs” and “provide information, counseling and recreational activities [for them].”

The regulations, which do not apply to students from Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan, are reportedly established to regulate university and college admission processes, cultivate and manage international students and provide them with “convenience.”
