Give your CV the edge to land the job you’ve always wanted.

 

You will have numerous opportunities to build your social and business network. China draws people from around the world meaning you will make friends and business contacts across the globe, as you have access to networking events and social activities.

Close

Close

3. Do I receive an allowance?

Once you begin your internship you may receive a daily allowance on work days, this is usually around 50-100RMB per work day, however it can vary between internships. Occasionally, some roles may have a higher allowance but this would depend on the individual company and your related experience. Some host companies notable NGO’s may not be able to offer a stipend or can only offer a lower stipend. You will be informed during the placement process with a potential host company if this would be the case.

Close

The 'F' visa that you use for the duration of your internship will not cover you to work after your placement is finished. If you are offered a permanent position in China after your internship it will be the responsibility of your new employer and yourself to arrange a 'Z' visa to cover your continued stay in China.

It will be available for 6 months from when it is first started, which is normally 2 months before you travel to China to give you an opportunity to learn the basics before you arrive. You can then continue with the course for up to 4 months.
