Q: Intern visa for Guangzhou to allow paid work?

http://mp.weixin.qq.com/s/QGZYEoun_oZBsXy9ruqyGw

Interesting. I hate the concept of internships. But allowing foreign students to work... I like that.

What do you think?

This actually makes sense, if you want to attract foreign students to your university and potential spies, unintended benefit, you need internships in their field of study like most other top universities around the world. Also, if your demographics is hurting your young labor pool, some free interns can fill the void. The only problem with all of this, it is possible for a Chinese international student on a student visa to work 20 hours a week in Britain and America and this should also be allowed in China, paid work, not free internships, the money really is not the issue as much as parity with other countries, many students do the work like food service to just improve their language skills. I met a Chinese lady with a masters degree from Britain with a great British accent and she said being a waitress for 20 hours a week helped her English more than any English teacher she ever had.

Cheap ESL teachers. Kick qualified teachers out by making it more difficult and costly for companies to employ you and now allow non degreed non natives legal working status

A:If you earned a Master's Degree in English Literature or a related subject, you can teach English legally in China even if you don't hold a passport from the usually accepted list of countries. The visa requirements clearly specifies this “loophole”.Nonetheless, I think this requirement is only for teaching English. If you are a licensed teacher of another discipline, such as Math or Physics, you don't need to be a native speaker, although most schools would rather hire a teacher from a country where English is the native language.Right now China’s borders are closed (does anyone have new information?), at least that’s what everyone is saying. China is probably only going to reopen the borders again once most of the population is vaccinated, and that might take a while. -- samvelasco87
