Oct. 17th, (Oct. 25th confirmation) Update: It's illegal to work and get paid under a bilateral government CSC scholarship (a clause within the contract indicating such circumstances), internship and volunteering is possible (in theory). Source; my friend who had the experience
My first post here - being a non-native English teacher who's willing to give the CSC non-degree programme and Confucius Institute scholarships a try for the next 2017/2018 year batch, I am very interested in learning about the possibility of doing legal part-time work (as an ESL teacher, mainly) whilst holding one of the aforementioned scholarships. (actually, that's the main factor of influence...
I'm currently preparing my HSK exam (which is probably going to be lvl 2, as there are slim chances of me getting a Conf. scholarship anyway...) just to have something to add to the application documents when the time comes for CSC registration, but I will definitely abandoned the idea of application altogether if I cannot find part-time work during my studies, as I have a family and would like to bring them over at some point during my stay and cannot afford to live there without any means of making income. Probably couldn't initiate the visa applications for bringing them over if I don't have means of funding their residence, right?!
Does anyone have any information or experience with this? I'm interested in the general situation, nationwide, don't need region/province-specific details at this point.
I have tried searching for it on the web, but without any luck. (tried here first but came out with nothing... http://www.csc.edu.c...amsearchen.aspx and http://en.csc.edu.cn/; this was somewhat insightful but doesn't cover scholarship-covered students http://lawandborder....ates_for_study)
Any feedback will be deeply appreciated, thanks!
