I will be studying abroad in China and it has been recommended that I set up a VPN in order to access sites necessary to complete matters relating to my home institution.  However, a VPN connected to my school's network is not allowed for students.  Would setting up a VPN to my network at home serve my needs?

    The only reason to set up VPN access to your home network would be to access that network. If you need to bypass Internet restrictions in China, the usual way of doing that is to use a public VPN endpoint outside the country. I can't give you specific instructions; you'd have to get those from someone with experience. Probably the set of accessible endpoints is often changing as the authorities block them. Also make sure you understand the possible consequences of violating Chinese law.
