Teaching in China offers amazing experiences, both professional and personal. Exciting opportunities exist for law graduates and professors in this country, with its grand history and fast-growing economy.
Finding a Position
Don't only apply directly to universities in China. Also consider fellowships and exchange programs. The Overseas Young Chinese Forum offers short-term fellowships for overseas scholars. Those with academic teaching experience should consider the Fulbright Scholar Program, which sends lecturers to major Chinese universities.
Do not take visa requirements lightly. Foreign workers in China must have valid "Z" visas, which are sponsored by an employer. Living in China requires a Residency Permit, as well. Discuss with the hiring institution how to get the necessary documentation.
Different student expectations and native language issues will add to the already difficult challenge of teaching. Have a good idea of what to teach and how to do it before leaving for China. Remember that it can take time to set up a residence, a bank account and an Internet connection. It's a good idea to have extra money available.
