(ECNS) -- Foreign graduates who meet certain qualifications can now apply for jobs in China, according to a new policy.
The policy released by the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Ministry of Education said that foreign students who gain a master's degree or above at China's universities and graduated within the previous year can seek jobs in the country.
Those who received a master's degree or above from respected overseas universities and graduated in less than one year are also eligible.
It says applicants should meet six requirements, including being at least 18 years old, healthy, having no criminal record, academic excellence with average scores no less than 80 out of 100 points or at least a B, no delinquent conduct at school, having received relevant academic qualifications and degrees, and having legal employing units.
