Questions & Answers

No, you do not have to know Chinese prior to participating. Although the internship companies may be Chinese, we make sure to arrange an English speaking supervisor that will arrange your daily tasks and guide you everyday. However, while you are still abroad, you still have an opportunity to learn Chinese. Most participants usually ask for private tutoring on the days that they are not too busy...
Adjusting to a Chinese-style working environment and way of work was challenging in the beginning, but once you are in the company for some weeks it gets better. Its always helpful if you make a friends with some of your colleagues as they will pass on tips about what is expected, you adjust easier if you talk to people who have been there longer than you have.

Thanks to GAC for The Best Experience i Ever Had

It's my first time to come to China. In fact i can't speak Chinese but deep in my heart i want to have an experience in China. In January 2016 i knew Go Abroad China from my best friend. I started to plan everything with GAC. They help me to find an internship, an appartment, and they also help me to make a visa. They also held a free activity every week which i like the most! and the most important thing is, all of GAC staff are very friendly and helpful. Thanks to GAC for giving me such a good experience in Beijing China!

How can this program be improved?
I think add more weekend activities will be perfect! i mean twice in a week! lol!

Amazing Internship exprience in Wuxi, China

My name is Daniela Falla and I’m g 21 years old, coming from Colombia to china for a whole year with Go Abroad China. I’ve studied tourism and hospitality management and I am in China doing my college practices so after China I’ll be going back home and graduate from college.
My Chinese skills are very limited however I speak fluent English, español which is Spanish and my mother language, Deutsch (german) and un peu francais which is a little bit of French so I think it may be fun to learn chinese and of course a challenge because is a though language but I’m sure it will be a plus for my life and my carrier.
I live in Wuxi, it lies on the southern border of Jiangsu province, the only thing that I have to say is that Wuxi is just amazing, nice people, locals are super friendly with foreigners, the environment is so nice, lots of parks, the Chinese architecture here is incredible. This city is also called the “little Shanghai”, for its prosperous economy, Wuxi became one of the China’s top 50 cities with the broad strength so now you know why it is called “little shanghai”. There are so many things to do and so many hidden spots you can find, you will never get bored here and if you do (I doubt it) you can just take a train to go to Shanghai, it takes only 40 min to get there and the tickets are 59 RMB which is around 8 dollars), also there is a city between Wuxi and Shanghai that is called Suzhou is beautiful also, in this area are so many cities you can go without spending lots of money.
Let’s talk about a little bit more about my job here, the company I’m working for is the Millenium Hotel, this is a 5 star Hotel, Millenium & Copthorne hotels owns and operates more than 120 hotels in 19 countries, they are located in international gateway cities throughout the United Kingdom, continental Europe, North America, Asia, New Zealand, North Africa and the middle East.
My position at the Hotel is Guest Relations Officer, so basically it is all about to supervise the front office all units activities during my shift and handle guest relations, request and concerns. g

Amazing Internship with GAC in Shanghai of China

Go aboard China was the one of the best things to happen to me!!! I did the homestay program where I stayed with the cutest family they were so kind to me!!! Kinder then the family I have now lol I actually miss them and think of them often even though it's been a few months since I left the program. I also got to work in an amazing engineering firm Wison were I had the most loving and hilarious coworkers, I literally just fit right in ! Lastly I want to talk about my international bff Jane who treated me like her own sister. I really couldn't ask for a better guide / friend, I still keep in touch with her through Instagram and I miss her jokes.If I had any questions or problems she was there to help me as best as she could.GAC I would recommend to a friend or any one reading this. Even when i wasn't in the city of Shanghai GAC still helped me, plan , get and make sure I was safe during my trip to Beijing. I love GAC!!!

How can this program be improved?
I'd like to say GAC should have more advertisement to show how amazing they are!!!
It's a little bit hard for the candidates to find GAC on Google or some other socail media, but to be honest they are supper nice, as well as all the staff of GAC. They are all very considerate and kind!!!

My Internship in Shanghai

I was in Shanghai for 2 months, my internship was at a big hotel and I was doing a lot of customer service and administration tasks. Sometimes I would need to be at the front desk together with the other Chinese ladies, other times I dealt with requests from guests and preparing conference spaces for meetings and proof reading some other materials. I felt like it was a relatively good internship, I do hope to get a job in the hospitality sector when I’m done with university. Shanghai was like any other big modern city, there are tons of restaurants, bars, parks; and with a lot of foreigners living there so to me it felt very international. The Go Abroad China coordinator there was helpful showing me around the city and my apartment, then introducing me to the hotel when my internship began. Would I go back to China? Yeah I think so if I got another great opportunity I would go again.

How can this program be improved?
If incentives are available, then let the candidates know.

Go Abroad China made my internship experience awesome

Go Abroad China was firstly recommended by my close relative and I've got to admit choosing Go Abroad China for my summer internship has been an excellent decision, and I have not regretted it for a moment. My first visit to China was made easy by Go Abroad China whereby they provided me with all the information and assistance i needed from them. I chose 1 year internship package which included housing fee and a service fee for the particular program. At the company where i was interning from, we were given transport and meal allowances everyday. I stayed in a shared apartment which was always clean, near subway station and i could obtain most of the services. Go Abroad China normally arranged some trips whereby i was able to make new friend Chinese and other nationalities.
At the office all workers could speak English this made the organisation most enjoyable to work for.
If you are thinking of Interning abroad, I highly recommend Go Abroad China

Amazing Experience with Go Abroad China

I have to say it was pretty funny when i decide to join into Go Abroad China. I still remember when i told my parents that i want to go to China,how bigger the mouth they were opened. I just searched online and then Go Abroad China pops out, and i read their website and the program discrbtion all the service i can order. Then i just put my laptop in front of my parents, and we finally decide to send Go Abroad China an email together. They did a fast reply, and after a few email talking i did a skype interview. It went pretty good and i got an offer that could really help my future career.
After all this i am landed in China. I cannot mention how excited i am, and the person who picked me up Jeremy was so cool. So by his lead i start my life in China.
And my coworker are really good and help same with my host family the are perfect.

My turn to Review

Although I do not enjoy doing this, I think it is an opportunity to give feedback to Go Abroad China as an agent as well as provide information for future participants on a platform. My experiences were too much and at this moment that I am typing, I am already tired. I wish Gooverseas will record this in voice rather because I enjoy doing some mathematical gymnastics rather than writting essays: a reason why I love corporate finance. I joined Go Abroad China through an information session on my campus during their campus tour. I am originally a university of Loughborough student majoring in Business Studies.
I paid so much for this program so I came in with serious expectations with high hopes. This was like a journey to Mars a planet I never knew about but had some photographs and footages from the news.
I was given 4 companies with 3 in Shanghai and another in Beijing. I do not know if I needed to mention these companies which I will do because I did not read the ethics guiding this review. But i settled for one in Shanghai called Transcosmos Consulting. I loved the job description from day one because I will be part of a team that are supposed to carry out a feasibility research for a clothing line from Italy which was supposed to take over another in Xian (China). I was then put on the line to speak with the HR who is an American. I was subjected to a stress interview and I did not like it but it was good I was confirmed afterall. I will assume at this point that I am already in China and then work started. Arrival arrangements went well and I am not supposed to be overly impressed as thats the duty of Go Abroad China as I paid them so much.
I love this company because I worked in a team where we were allowed to vary the working time. We worked so late sometimes and we are allowed to delay coming to work next day. This proposes I am a disorgnized person and loves disorganized environments but I dont really care what you as a reader is thinking because my supervisor likes me that way.
First of all, I was made to perform tasks that were already completed to test my accuracy especially financial statement analysis and predictions. Cost structuring given the company's information. Stress testing on financial systems within an organizations and evaluating their capital structure.
So that brings the corporate finance topics and revisions to mind. Have you ever been put on the spot ? I have and I think I never disgraced Prof Tuller the one who educated me about finance. Company evaluation, the process of mergers and acquisitions, Red lights during acquisitions, Negotiation skills etc was what I added to my head during the internship. It was very easy to absorb because it was done in a very corporate environment with real situation.
What else? the food?, the people? the fun? the trips? the events? etc they are not relevant to you now as you read this because your main aim is to get real hands on experience in China. China has 10000000 how many zeros? types of food and you cant enjoy all. Get ready for the drinking culture of chinese while you network and it is pretty easy. Shanghai is a city that easily sways dreams. I am not fascinated by its beautiful designs on the street since I have had enough of that in London but the Nightlife is........ (let me end it there)
I just secured a 2 year contract with the company I interned and I am considering going back to China only if my family agrees.
I think thats all for now.
The program was fantastic as I am trying to avoid too sweet words. I think Go Abroad China is too old and learnt their lessons in the past but they have not finished growing. I worked with Native English Speaking and 2 Italians How could I speak Chinese? So the "Ni hao" and basics is all I had not Business Chinese. I hate them for that.
If you find this helpful, hit me.

How can this program be improved?
Go Abroad China should look for Scholarships for participants. They have a fantastic program content which could be only patronized by the affluent.
I think a good collaboration will earn them a good client base

My Intern life in China

Go Abroad China arranged me a very good internship placement, all my coworker were friendly and they really helpful. It was a great experience.I learned a lot of stuff from this company. At the beginning i was a little worried, because i thought the different culture and the different language,but the truth is we have a great time. The hostfamily also amazing, they treat me very well. And after a few days we truly became family.
Also Go Abroad China arranged me a tutor to taught me Chinese. I knew i am a slow learner and Chinese is really hard, but after all we get through it.
I want to thank Go Abroad China give me a memory i can not forget for my whole life.

They picked me up at the airport and help me found an amazing host family,they helped me to get used to the city show me how to take the subway how to take the bus, and a lot of tips about how to handle my life in China. The internship company they arranged for me was perfect. I couldn't ask any more about this experience.
The only thing it do bothered me when i was in China is some chinese people they like to staring at me.Maybe they thought i was some celebrity,who knows!

First Time to Stay and Work in China

When I decided to spend my mandatory internship semester abroad, I was totally in a mess. But after contacting Go Abroad China, it looks much easier than I thought. Go Abroad China provides a referral service that helps you find the right type of companies who are also interested in hiring you. So basically, instead of preparing and sending out 50+ applications you only need to write one.
The company that I ended up with is a Japanese based company with labs all over the world. The Shanghai office has approximately 200 employees and is quite modern. I work in a sixteen person team in the R&D department and my work involves a lot of software development and prototyping. The work is, thanks to a large amount of research and development tasks, a smooth ramp up from previous university courses and provides very many interesting challenges.
Due to the fact that the official language at the office is English, adapting to the working environment has been a breeze. But anyway, I still have chance to practice my Chinese with my Chinese colleagues after work. Everything else on the other hand is completely different and takes some getting used to, but should be no problem for an observant traveller (“When in Rome…”).
No matter whether you study engineering and are looking for something beyond the typical ERASMUS semester or just a business student needing an edge for future job applications, an internship in China will provide you with a unique and rewarding experience.

Management Consultant in Shanghai, China

After graduated from my university, I decided to look for an internship in a different country to widen eyes. Compared to other countries it seemed to me as a jungle to lock my final intern country, which is why I contacted Go Abroad China, which assisted me in finding an internship. The internship is in a management consultancy with headquarter in Shanghai. It was clear from day 1 that I would work very independently and that you have to be good at managing large assignments yourself, as If you were working. By providing such a high level of responsibility, I have gained a high belief in myself and my knowledge has increased a lot. I have been assisting on many types of different projects and every one of them has been really interesting and given me many insights into many different industries.
Furthermore, has my Chinese skills improved remarkable since you are working a lot with sales material and presentations.
My skills within excel, word and power point have also improved. I valued myself as a skilled user before I started, but I can ensure I indeed have improved these skills as well.
What they require from you is the same as many other consultancies so the work pressure and hours is very volatile, so do not take this internship if you are not willing to work. Do it if you have a passion about management consulting and if you want to get a feeling of how things are working within a management consultancy and if you want to work in a young dynamic team.
Overall my job is very versatile and interesting which combined has resulted in that there are no two similar days in a week. So far I’ve enjoyed my time very much is and that it is based in Shanghai just a bonus. I personally believe it should be mandatory for everyone to work abroad to get an insight into different cultures and hereby prepare them to adopt the more and more globalized economy better. Furthermore, it is a good way to improve your CV and yourself to the life after the studies.

Paid Fiance Internship in Shanghai, China

With a huge interest in international business and cultures, I have always wanted to learn about different business practices in different parts of the world. So after a pleasant experience studying in my colleague, I decided to go to a different country and learn more. After careful consideration, China became my top choice which was also why I contacted Go Abroad China.
After a short trip, I finally first landed on one of the fastest developing city Shanghai. Miss Tina from Go Abroad China picked up me at the airport and help arranged everything for me. Two days later, I was placed in a global logistics company in Shanghai. The work was very versatile and required a lot of quantitative analysis. I had different assignments working with both Finance department and commercial department. Through collaboration, I was able to create several expense analysis templates for them to use in the future. I found that my excel skills have improved and I’ve mastered the skills in analyzing large sets of data.
Overall, it was a very pleasant experience working in this company, the working environment and the colleagues were very friendly and knowledgeable. I believe this experience has allowed me to gain insights in the Chinese industry.

Wonderful Experience in Beijing

Because I did not have much time to search for an internship, I contact one of my friends who has ever stayed in China for couple of month, and he recommended Go Abroad China to me. After an intense week I got an internship in a management consulting firm in Beijing. The tasks I have been given so far are very interesting and challenging. I was expecting to be spending a lot of time doing administrative work, but I spend 90%+ of my time doing tasks which are more project-related. In the company I am working for I feel that if you can get the job done well, they do not care what position you have in the company, and are willing to give you challenging and interesting tasks.
Living in China can be a challenge. You have problems communicating and simple daily tasks can in the beginning be hard to get done efficiently. I would recommend that you approach these challenges one at the time – and remember "what does not kill you – makes you stronger". Fortunately I get help from Go Abroad China from the beginning to the end of my time in China. I had to say Go Abroad China staff is really helpful during my time in China.
At the same time it is exciting to live in a totally different culture. You will quickly understand that the Chinese are very friendly and very interested in you as a foreigner.
To summarize my experience in China in short is not possible, but I would like to say the following as an ending note: if you want to have an Internship abroad – go to China with Go Abroad China.

My Internship Experience in China

I was looking for an internship abroad for a long time, and found out that China is a common destination as there are many opportunities for recent graduates to gain some experience. As I didn't have any time for looking for the internship myself, I found Go Abroad China searching on the web and told them what I was looking for. They came up with several options until we find one that suited me, they were really helpful during all the process. Arriving in China without speaking any Chinese is not easy, as almost no Chinese speaks English so it can get really frustrating when trying to rent an apartment or doing basic shopping, but they always try to help you. Same for the working environment, first weeks working with Chinese people will challenge your patience but if you believe that some struggling is the best way of learning, you will find that you grow much faster professionally than in a western working environment. Bottom line, China is a fascinating country, full of opportunities, that will frustrate you in the beginning but it will end up surprising you as you will find yourself loving it sooner than expected. And Go Abroad China is a great gateway to it.
