As an issuer of student visas in China, New Century is committed to handling this responsibility with integrity. In light of this, there are certain minimum requirements that full-time students must meet to obtain and maintain a student visa. Full-time students are required to take at least 80% of full-time hours over the period of their visa. Since “full-time hours” is defined as taking class five days per week during a regular semester, full-time students must take class at least four days per week (each day of class must consist of two hours of individual or pairs class, or three hours of group class).
Allowance is made for one spouse of a married couple to study for as little as 60% of part-time hours as long as the other spouse fulfills the standard requirement described above. Please note that any full-time learner who chooses to study for less than 100% full-time hours will incur an administrative fee. See full-time policies for more details.
