Part time internship

Internships have been an integral part of this study abroad program since 1998. By working with American expats and Chinese professionals alike, students gain valuable first hand experience about the Chinese economy and society.

Note: By the new visa regulations enacted in late 2013, student visa may not cover internships. And thus possible internships might be arranged only in the nature of volunteer work.
