The management of foreign students in mainland universities is a new subject facing China's education since the founding of new China, especially since the reform and opening-up. The increasing number of foreign students on the one hand represents the vigorous development of China's cultural and educational undertakings. On the other hand, it also makes the mainland universities face more challenges in student management. China's mainland university convergence management is still in the development stage, mainly in the school and the grassroots level, two levels of management institutions and personnel, usually taking a controlled management model. In contrast, the management of foreign and Hong Kong and Taiwan regions has been quite mature, colleges and universities in Europe and the United States tend to professional management at the school level, Hong Kong and Taiwan are the school and grassroots professional management at the same time. Therefore, the mainland colleges and universities should "seek common points while reserving difference" on the basis of the status quo, adhere to "almost the same" direction, learn from colleges and universities of Europe and the United States, Hong Kong and Taiwan at the same time, to further increase the support of grassroots student organizations, consolidate and carry forward the advantages of our college counselor system.
