“When I got there, I did not feel lost. I knew that there was a strong system out there to actually help us out”

Alongside the internships, InternChina arranges trips and activities to help participants to experience the real China, and get to know the city that they’re interning in.

“For me, the highlight of the trip was definitely the hike that we did up a mountain, trying to search for the source of a waterfall- but failed dramatically, and ended up swimming in this beautiful pool of crystal-clear water and it was genuinely like paradise.”

NGO internship in Chengdu – Rosie reference

Name: Rosie Wigmore
Nationality: British
Destination: Chengdu
Accommodation: Apartment
Programme details: 2 months, Generation UK Programme
University: University of Sussex
Year: 2015Rosey spent 2 months interning with an NGO in Chengdu, Sichuan Province.

“I chose Chengdu because it was an opportunity to have a more traditional Chinese experience. China has a lot of large, international, quite glamorous cities, but Chengdu offers a little bit more traditionally Chinese”

InternChina not only helped Rosie to find her internship with Blue Sheep, but also supported her throughout her time in Chengdu.

“I would highly recommend InternChina. It gives you an opportunity to be very independent and take a lot of initiative and make the most of your internship standing on your own two feet. But there’s a lot of guidance as well.”
