Perceived anti-China bias & dearth of jobs have Chinese science students in US mulling their options

Caught in a geopolitical tug of war between China and the US as job opportunities for them dwindle in both countries, Chinese science students at American universities are wrestling with a dilemma: should they stay, or go?

Several of these students – who declined to let their names be used for this article for fear of repercussions – said in interviews they felt anxious about what they perceived as an increasingly hostile climate towards Chinese students in the US.

Amid employment and visa uncertainty, some said they had extended their graduate studies’ time limits to improve their chances of winning jobs or US citizenship.

“If most of the Chinese talent is expelled, the US is doomed, without a doubt,” said a master’s student in information systems at the University of Florida, who asked not to be identified.

“Most companies like Microsoft are complaining big about this.”
