  • What guide sets salary standards for foreign teacher or expert?
  • A:

    Following are the guides as stated by the Chinese government:

    *Category 1: RMB 2,200 ~ 3,300 teachers having a bachelor's degree and over two years of work experience, or middle school teachers with over three years of teaching experience.

    *Category 2: RMB 3,300 ~ 4,600 assistant professors or lecturers of institutions of higher education, or middle school teachers with over five years of teaching experience, and professionals with corresponding titles and business levels.

    *Category 3: RMB 4,600 ~ 6,000 professors, associate professors of institutions of higher education, senior lecturers of the Commonwealth countries, and professionals with corresponding titles and business levels.

    *Crucial talents badly needed in China and difficult to recruit may be employed with high salary.

    NOTE: There are the established guidelines, allowing room for negotiation. In reality, many schools will offer higher salaries to entice the foreign teacher. However, a higher salary from a school often means more contracted teaching hours or other specified duties.
