Looking for a life-changing experience that is also an excellent investment in your future? Welcome to China! China is poised to overtake the US as the world’s largest economy, while trade and business links between China and the UK are growing fast. Developing a connection with China could be the smartest choice you can make right now.

What’s on offer?

The British Council in China is currently offering a range of exciting funded internships and academic scholarships to UK students and recent graduates. This means you have the chance complete a valuable two month work placement in your industry of choice in China, or to spend up to one academic year studying non-degree courses at universities across mainland China.

 Funded Internships

We provide support for two month internships in mainland China. Placements are available in a wide range of industries, across six booming cities, and are available all year round! For a summer internship, please apply at least two months before your desired start date.

Our funding covers accommodation and comprehensive travel insurance, airport pick-up, and dedicated support throughout the placement. Since February 2015, students in receipt of a full Maintenance Grant are also eligible for sponsored return flights.
What are my chances?

Applications are competitive, but this year we have more internships and scholarships available than ever before. There are also spots on the internship programme reserved especially for students at Welsh Universities!

How do I apply?

The application process is simple, with all instructions and forms available on our website, with additional information about academic scholarships also. For more details please e-mail gen.uk@britishcouncil.org.cn
