Summary: This is a premium service from CUCAS that aims to help students who are under 18 provide guardian service when they study in China.

. What is a Guardianship in China

All international students under the age of 18 studying in China will need to find a guardian. The guardian has a number of responsibilities over the student. The guardian is usually a Chinese person in the city where the student’s university is located but sometimes can be a person from other countries or Chinese in other cities as well.

The guardian has to assist the student with some special or urgent matters when the university asked and sometimes may need to attend school meetings on behalf of the student’s parents. In rare cases of emergencies, the guardian has the power to make decisions about medical treatments.

Given these responsibilities, it’s important for parents to find a guardian who’s responsible through a reputable guardianship service. A professional guardian can help ease a parent’s mind about their young child in boarding school.
