The British Council’s Generation UK internship programme is still offering UK students the chance to gain two-month work experience in mainland China!

Available across six cities (Beijing, Chengdu, Qingdao, Shanghai, Shenzhen or Zhuhai), 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.

Generation UK covers accommodation, STA travel insurance an airport pickup service and dedicated support throughout the placement, however 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 should submit an application before Friday 11 April 2014. Generation UK advise applying as early as possible as funding is limited and places are expected to be filled quickly.
