The British Council’s Generation UK internship programme is still offering UK students the chance to gain work experience in mainland China this summer. Placements are available at companies in a wide range of industries, including: accounting and finance, architecture, business, engineering, hospitality, information technology, legal, logistics, marketing and PR, media and creative industries, pharmaceuticals and more. Knowledge of Chinese is not a pre-requisite for Generation UK internships.
Generation UK covers accommodation, STA travel insurance, an airport pickup service and dedicated support throughout the placement. Students will need to cover the costs of their own return flights and visa.
Please note: For placements starting in June or July 2014, students must submit an application before Friday 11 April 2014. We strongly advise applying as early as possible as funding is limited and places are expected to be filled quickly.
