I do that almost on a weekly basis ... It's very easy:

 

Firstly, one must have Z visa ... authenticated BA, TEFL/TESOL Cert., Non-crim. Cert., 2-years of documented post grad working experience ...

Application for Z visa form must be filled entirely over the Internet ... and submitted to officials at Chinese Embassy in one's home country.

 

Once, you'll finish all above, come back and we'll transfer you to the student's visa.

 

I read, new requirement will be ''applicant must submit her/his social media history ...'', so 'no-more-lying' and 'presumptuous' postings ...

Actually it's possible. You can shift to student visa.Your school will process the document you need to apply your student visa to your home country  then come back to study. The time you intend to work again, it's the same process you need to bring your documents to your home country to acquire work visa .

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
