TOOLKIT OF FREE RESOURCES

We have created a toolkit of free resources for professionals in the International Higher Education and Work Placements sectors. The toolkit is based on our 10 years of experience delivering internship programmes overseas. The documents included cover our Health & Safety and Student Support procedures.

HOW ARE WE FUNDED?

01.

GOVERNMENT FUNDING

 

Through partnerships with the British Council, Education New Zealand and projects funded by Australia’s New Colombo Plan, the cost of many of our programmes is covered through government funding. We also work with in-country partners to deliver projects working with local university & government organisations.

02.

UNIVERSITY PARTNERSHIPS

 

We work with numerous high-profile universities from all over the world, whereby our programme is paid for on behalf of a number of students by their university. We manage every element of the programme; promoting the opportunity, screening applications, pre-departure briefing, on-site support and alumni networks.

03.

CORPORATE FUNDING

 

Particularly for our long-term internship programmes, corporate partners (including internship host organisations) fund our programmes on behalf of the participants. We are always seeking more corporate partners to support our work.

04.

STUDENT SELF FUNDING

 

Every year a number of students & recent graduates pay us to provide support, internship provision, insurance, visa processing & accommodation in our exciting destinations. We signpost students to external scholarships & bursaries, should they not qualify for our government, university or corporate funding streams.

WHAT OUR PARTNERS SAY ABOUT US

GOVERNMENT & UNIVERSITY PARTNERS

STEVEN HUTT
BRITISH COUNCIL CHINA

“InternChina are our current partners in delivering internships for UK students in China. They have helped British students under the Generation UK programme gain valuable cross-cultural business skills through placements across a range of industries and locations, and provided excellent pastoral care and support for all participants they have worked with.”

PROF. BILL RUSSELL
UNIVERSITY OF DUNDEE

Pagoda Projects is spectacular in terms of the care and enthusiasm they exude for looking after our students while on their internships and giving them a series of truly life broadening experiences is magnificent. Jamie Bettles (Managing Director) is special in that he set up Pagoda with a vision that true understanding of cultural differences comes from immersing oneself in a local culture in an everyday work environment – i.e. internships. And this leads to greater tolerance and generosity to different ways of life. Jamie lives by this ethos and it is reflected in all the Pagoda team. It is a great pleasure to work with Jamie and all the ‘team’ at Pagoda.

SALLY RODRICK
SWINBURNE UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY

“The students gain valuable industry experience throughout their internship, in an international context. Pagoda Projects are timely, efficient and organised . They are supportive of our administrative processes and make the entire process very easy for the students and the university.”

LEO SMITH
DE MONTFORT UNIVERSITY

“InternChina has been a supplier for #DMUglobal since 2014. InternChina’s role in sourcing internships and providing all the necessary support ensured that our students had the opportunity to work in exciting, international environments whilst expanding their cultural horizons. Their expertise, passion, and professionalism have ensured a successful cooperation that we look forward to developing in the future.”

PAUL ROWE
UNIVERSITY OF CENTRAL LANCASHIRE

“Working with Pagoda Projects is an extremely collaborative experience. The core programmes are obviously about providing an amazing, value-added student experience but the team also put a lot of their efforts in listening to partners and making the collaboration as straightforward as possible. Our students have loved their placements provided through InternVietnam and gained life-changing experiences which will benefit them both personally and professionally well beyond their graduation. Pagoda Projects are a fantastic team to work with and it’s easy to see why their products and projects are multi-award winning.”

STEVEN McDONALD
WESTERN SYDNEY UNIVERSITY

“We have been working with Pagoda Projects as a preferred partner since 2017. The support and services provided by them are top rate and as a result the University is collaborating with them on a number of Australian Government funded projects. Recently many of our students participated in a New Colombo Plan project in China, where Pagoda Projects provided students with valuable international work experience”

CHRIS GALE
CARDIFF UNIVERSITY

“It’s genuinely a pleasure working with Pagoda Projects, your service levels really do set the standard across the sector, from our experience. Students never have anything other than positive things to say about the team, and the internships are of a consistently high standard. Long may our partnership continue!”

HUA GEDDES
UNIVERSITY OF NOTTINGHAM

Pagoda Projects have successfully organised internships for nearly 20 of our undergraduate students in four exciting Chinese cities during the past two summers. Their staff in both head and regional offices are dedicated, reliable and helpful. Feedback from our students has been mostly fantastic. I would recommend them to any HE institutions who are seeking an agency to help organise placements in China.
