British Council – Internships in China

If you are a UK student or recent graduate, why not consider interning in China next year?

Funded two-month placements are available through the British Council’s Generation UK internship programme. You choose your industry sector and which of six Chinese cities you’d like to work in. Start dates are available throughout the year, so you can carry out your placement in the months that suit you.

Placements are available in a variety of sectors, from law, finance and engineering to marketing, sales and fashion, and a wide range of further options.

Funding covers internship placement fees, accommodation and comprehensive travel insurance, as well as airport pick-up and dedicated support throughout your placement.

Eligibility criteria apply and you can find these on the British Council’s website.

Applications will close on 13 January 2019 (23.59 UK time).
