Name: Azeem Khan
University: Imperial College London
Programme: Chengdu, 2 Month Internship, June 2015
Why did you apply?
I have always wanted to go to China, but also gain experience in working abroad. This kind of opportunity would not have been possible without the support of Generation UK-China
What did you do?
I worked in Customer Services Support at a games company which involved replying to customer queries, developing and managing our forum, and translating the game transcripts. I enjoyed my placement very much - the staff were very friendly and helpful. The work was very different to what I have done before so I have gained some new skills from it.
How did the programme benefit you?
Generation UK was able to cover expenses that I would not have been able to take care of myself. The programme has given me the opportunity to take part in some fantastic experiences in China, experiences that I will never forget.
Would you recommend the programme?
There are many intelligent, talented and hardworking students who cannot seize certain opportunities purely because of financial burdens. I feel that Generation UK can help these people realise their full potential and achieve their ambitions.
