Procedure for Leaving the School  

International exchange students whose studies have been completed and who are leaving the Chinese mainland absolutely must do so while their visa or residence permit is still valid. If, for some reason, it is not possible to leave the country on time, it is necessary to apply for and have approved an application for an extension to your residence permit. During the duration of their studies, the legitimate rights and interests of any international exchange student studying in China will receive the protection of the law, and so students must respect Chinese law and any school regulations.
