As part of their plan to help young migrant workers to receive higher education the Beijing University held a enrollment examination to more than 1,715 migrant workers in eight cities across the province. Around 220 young migrant workers aged between 18 to 24 attend an enrollment examination in Shenzhen, in hopes to receive free remote education from Beijing University.
Some of the workers also came as far as Dongguan, Huizhou and Heyuan and each of the workers were asked to choose at least three subjects to take, the subjects to be chosen are Chinese, mathematics, politics, English, accounting and administration management.
343 migrant workers showed outstanding performances in the examinations will be interviewed online on March 20, the second round of face to face interview will be done in March 26. 100 workers that will pass the examinations will receive remote education for free, while the remaining who passed will only have to pay around half of the university’s tuition fees. After they finished their studies with the university, they will be receiving bachelors’ degree.
