Our Generation UK – China programme brings UK students and young professionals to China, helping them to enhance their long-term job prospects and develop a global mindset through both study and work experience opportunities.
China is a country steeped in rich culture and history; but with a new language, large population and differing customs, we also understand that stepping into the unknown can be daunting. Therefore, we’ve asked some of our Generation UK – China ‘alumni’ to tell us about their challenges, rewards and experiences. From two-month internships to a year studying at a Chinese university, they tell us why they, and why you, should choose Generation UK – China.
