China's Ministry of Education urged colleges and universities to make detailed policies to support job-seeking students, such as allowing them to temporarily suspend schooling to start businesses.
The ministry said in a circular that local departments and colleges should also help graduates obtain more job-related information, particularly employment information from emerging industries, private sectors and small enterprises.
The ministry said more flexible policies should be made to encourage college students to engage in innovation and starting up businesses.
The circular came ahead of the graduation season of college students amid a slowing economic growth. A record high of 7.56 million students will graduate in July.
