Spend a Gap Year in China
Sometimes we simply need a year off (or even just a semester)... A gap between high school and college or university, or break halfway through an intensive degree or course, or if you’ve reached a crossroad in your life and don’t know which path to follow.
Taking a gap year in China can be the perfect solution! You can join students from across the globe in an unrivaled Gap Year Study Abroad Program and discover the world, grow in confidence and independence, learn Chinese, and add something to your portfolio of life that will stand you in good stead in the future.
Why Take a Gap Year in China?
Few other countries can offer the diversity and experience you’ll get living, studying, working or traveling in China. China has many faces; it’s a myriad of culturally rich and diverse cities. As you move around you’ll experience modern China around one corner and ancient China around another. China has the world’s largest and fastest growing economy. It’s a culturally rich country that is continually adapting to stay abreast of world changes.

Before you apply, remember to do your research, so you have an idea about where, when and for how long you want to intern abroad. When you have an idea of what you’d like, complete our online application form to get the ball rolling.
Step two: Assessment
To make sure we know what you want from your internship experience – where you want to work, what you want to achieve, where and for how long you’d like to stay – we’ll organize a 15 minute Skype interview with you.

Within two to three days after the interview, the coordinator will be in touch by email to let you know if your application has been successful. If so, we’ll send you a formal offer.
