Shanghai opens hukou to students who graduated from top 50 world universities
Shanghai opens hukou to students who graduated from universities that rank top 50 around the world as a bid to attract more overseas high-level talents to boost the city’s resumption of work and production.
Students from universities that rank top 50 worldwide can directly apply for hukou in Shanghai if they work in the city, regardless of requirements of social insurance; while those from universities ranking from 51-100 can also apply to get Shanghai hukou after working full-time and pay social insurance premiums for six months, Shanghai Municipal Human Resources and Social Security Bureau said.
This is part of Shanghai’s endeavor to activate economic development after three months of epidemic fight.
Previously only doctoral degree holders from domestic universities were allowed to apply for Shanghai hukou directly, Wu Bin, vice president of Shanghai Overseas Economic and Technological Promotion Association, told Chinese media Yicai.
