Record 9.09 million students expected to graduate in 2021, an increase of 350,000 from 2020
China might find it extremely hard to provide stable employment opportunities for the record nine million students set to graduate from its universities in 2021.
While 2020 was touted as the most difficult employment season in China’s history because of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to Chinese state media, the pandemic’s effects will continue in 2021.
More than 9 million students are expected to graduate in China in 2021, an increase of 350,000 from 2020, according to China’s education ministry. The data from China’s seventh national census shows that the country’s labour force and its proportion to the total population are continuing to decline. However, that will not negate the pressure of employment on the youth, according to experts. The education ministry assured that all departments would work together to ensure stable employment, despite the complicated environment.
Since last September, the Chinese government has been working to secure employment for future graduates and state-owned enterprises are easing the pressure, with major colleges and varsities also working towards absorbing more graduates who wish to study further.
