Income comparison

First year teachers at a kindergarten or elementary school enjoy a typical monthly net income after living expenses up to twice that of their UK-based peers—and renewing teachers looking to stay longer make even more.

Net Income After Expenditure

UK Income Breakdown

UK figures are based on the most recent published ONS data for the median UK 22 year old’s graduate salary, with cost of living expenditure based on data published by TransferWise.com.

Net Income After Expenditure

China Income Breakdown

China figures are based on a minimum salary with cost of living expenditure extrapolated from Foshan, Guangdong Province.

Increased Purchasing Power

The UK is the 13th most expensive country to live in globally – China is ranked 135th. So our teachers also benefit from a monthly average cost of living that is 66% less expensive than the UK.

Costs Comparison between UK and China

It’s important to note that not everything is cheaper – imported items will be similar or more expensive than the UK. But for basic living needs, getting around and entertainment, being located in China means you can enjoy a richer, more comfortable lifestyle – and keep more of what you earn, as you can see above.
