Have you ever thought of being a part-time student in China? But what exactly does it mean?
As the word said, being a part-time student means that you’re going to attend a language program or university course not each day but part-time: you’ll be able to organize your classes around your own schedule and things-to-do.
If you have limit of time, attending an intensive program is the quickest way to learn but if you don’t have these kinds of limitations, being a part-time student might be the best and funniest option to choose.
With a part-time program you’re having more time to immerge yourself into the Chinese daily life and culture: you’ll enjoy all the activities that are needed to do outside the classroom which can be even more useful!
In China many universities or language schools offer these kinds of courses. They are made to encounter the needs of everyone. But why choose a part-time program?
Blending part-time study and employment along with leisure time can be a pretty good mix. There is less coursework to deal with and it is unlikely that your routine will be as concentrated as someone who is full-time at university, allowing more time to do what you enjoy. Tutors and lecturers will be familiar with students tackling part-time study and should be able to provide advice for how best to approach the course. Completing a smaller proportion of the workload will also leave more time for seeking out the assistance of teaching staff to clarify any issues. There is great variation in the people that choose to study part-time. They could be middle-aged already with a distinguished career, a young professional raising a family or a school leaver working casual shifts at a local café.
These is all you need to know about being a part-time student in China, it can be a great way to learn with fun!
