Program Description:
Internship Fields

Intern in China
The China Internship Programs offers the unique opportunity to gain work experience, study Chinese and develop a cultural understanding of China while living abroad in the world's fastest growing economy. This program offers all three aspects of living overseas, which is invaluable to the personal development of students and offers the chance to add exceptional work experience to one's resume.
 
 Interns are placed in a single or shared apartment or hotel room throughout the city. Students may either Internship Only or Internship/Study Option depending on preference and goals.
China
Intern Only Option 
The Internship Only Option is for those individuals who would like to devote all of their time and energy towards gaining work experience in China. Students are placed in a domestic Chinese or an international company in one of their three chosen fields. The actual internship duties will vary based on the skills and experience of the intern. If you do not have any previous Chinese language experience, we recommend that you take the language study option as English is not widely spoken and learning the local language contributes to the overall experience of living abroad.

Intern/Study Option
The Intern/Study option is the most popular choice, exposing students to the full range of experiences that China has to offer– working, language study, and experiencing China's culture first hand. Students are placed in a domestic Chinese or an international company in one of their three chosen fields and will attend classes at a local Chinese language school. The student will be given a placement test upon their arrival to determine what level Chinese class is best suited to their needs. We encourage applicants who do not speak Chinese to take this option as English is not widely spoken and learning the local language contributes to the overall experience of living abroad.

Language Course: Hourly rates and minimum amount of class hours depend on Chinese level of the applicant. For beginner to advanced levels, rates can
range from $20-$25 per hour, with minimum requirement of 60-90 hours of class, respectively. Since a placement test will determine hourly rate and minimum required hours, class schedules will be determined upon arrival.
 

Internship and Stipend
Program participants can receive a local salary commensurate with their skills, abilities and local job conditions and salary levels. The salary can vary according to qualifications of the applicant and duration of the internship (longer internships are beneficial in negotiating monthly compensation).
