Michael completed a 2 month Generation UK funded internship at a local company in Zhuhai.

“You get the both worlds really, you get a high quality internship where you can learn a lot from and gain skills that can increase your employability with, but obviously you get to immerse yourself in a different culture.”

When you first arrive in China it can be overwhelming, however, Michael was able to overcome the inital culture shock barrier and grow from his time in China.

“When you first arrive here you’re absolutely terrified, but by the end of it you’ve met some incredibly great people, you’ve immersed yourself in a wonderful culture and you’ve been to a great internship. It’s very much worth it.”
