Information for Students and Graduates

Getting your first permanent, full-time job in your dream career can be tough. Often students apply for hundreds of jobs before they make their first break, others end up starting in an entirely different career. Many job adverts ask for a minimum level of experience, making it even harder for a graduate to find a suitable position. It can be disheartening trying to break into the work market, to try and stand out from the crowd and be noticed.

We have a solution for you! Time spent studying and working abroad in an internship can make all the difference when it comes to your dream career. In fact, knowing more languages and having an international mindset is an asset for the increasing number of companies who are operating seamlessly across borders.

Why come to China to Learn Chinese?

Why should you learn Mandarin Chinese, and more so, why you should come to China to learn it?

  1. Experience one of the world’s oldest civilizations juxtaposed with modern living; get immersed in the vibrant sights, sounds and flavors of China, they’re unique!
  2. Learn to speak the world’s most spoken language faster than you ever could by learning at home (and get in loads of practice with the locals while you’re here).
  3. Challenge yourself and grow; develop critical thinking and confidence, learn to adapt, get to know yourself better, and develop skills that will stand you in good stead for the rest of your life.
  4. Add an experience to your résumé that will make you stand out from the crowd. Both college and employers value the characteristics you have and develop as an international student and intern.
  5. See some of the world’s oldest buildings, meet endangered pandas, explore the vast regional areas of China that range from mountains to deserts, and get the chance to see record-breaking bridges and futuristic architecture.
  6. Make new friends for life that live all over the world (you may even have opportunities to visit them in their countries later on!).
  7. Gain global perspectives from the world’s largest exporter, get to understand international trade and how to do it well.

Many companies across the globe, especially multinational corporations either have a presence in China or do business with China. The demand for English/Mandarin Chinese speakers is high, but the number of people who are fluent in both is low. This opens up incredible opportunities for your future!


Personal and Professional

Getting to know a new culture will result in personal and professional development. Being able to understand another culture will help you predict and understand their behaviors, it will help you understand their viewpoint better. With China having such an influence across the world, being able to understand and work Chinese businesses can be a massive career advantage.

Are You Work Ready?

Many graduates start work with little or no work experience and are not prepared for the workforce. An internship is a great way to gain practical experience, so you are work-ready when the time comes to look for a full-time position. An internship can help you get your foot in the door - many of our interns have been offered permanent positions at their internship company once their program was complete.

Diplomacy and Adaptability

Learning to navigate the workforce and cope with different situations, especially if you are in another country learning a new culture, can teach you how to navigate and adapt to different situations. You’ll learn how to be diplomatic in your communications as you begin to understand working with people who have a different background and values to yourself.

Learn About Business Roles and Industries

When you leave university, you may not have a clear picture of what you want to do, what type of position you’d like or which industry you’d like to work in. Learning about an industry and working in it can also be worlds apart. An internship allows you to test the waters and see whether a particular role or industry meets your expectations and if you’d like to work in it permanently.

Choose Your Program

Go Abroad China offers a broad range of programs for students and graduates looking for that extra edge on the résumé. We’re a one-stop platform that lets you choose from a variety of program types, or mix them up to get a broader experience.

All our programs include social, cultural and networking activities to ensure you get the most of your time here and can fully immerse yourself in the Chinese lifestyle. This adds fun, helps you grow personally, and teaches you about the Chinse way of life and business.

It will probably surprise you that English is not the most spoken language in the world! It is, in fact, Mandarin. Not only that, the demand for bilingual people who can speak both English and Mandarin is growing as more and more companies do business with China, have offices there or trade with China. Find adventure and accelerate your Chinese language proficiency by coming to study Mandarin Chinese in one of our high-quality Chinese language programs. When you study abroad, you get to immerse yourself in another culture and learn the language much faster than studying in your home country.
