    Program Structure

    The internship program works in conjunction with the Mandarin language program.

    CHINESE LANGUAGE

    The language program consists of five key components: the core classes (in reading, writing, listening, speaking and grammar); electives such as Chinese character writing; one-on-one or group tutoring; a partnered language exchange, which connects you with a native Chinese speaking student; and social activities such as the Peking Duck Feast and karaoke nights. The language program allows you the chance to broaden your knowledge of Mandarin, and the internship program allows you the opportunity to use that knowledge.

    INTERNSHIP

    The internship program occupies approximately 20 hours each week, depending on your placement. Hours will vary according to the placement; placement depends on your professional skills, your previous education and your Mandarin abilities in the core classes. The internship program consists three key components: Pre-internship training, the internship and stipend.

    Pre-internship Training

    To help prepare you for your internship, we invite a top business professional to present a series of lectures on the Chinese business culture, over the course of one week, prior to your internship. The leading professional will provide practical knowledge, insights and advice on working in China’s business environment – in either a successfully locally run business, or a large international company operating in China. Topics discussed will be general business writing skills, telephone and business etiquette.

    The Internship

      You will be working for approximately 20 hours per week, in one or two companies, depending on the placement. As with all internships, you will be volunteering your time, but the experience will be invaluable. Certain companies may choose to compensate you for food or travel, if necessary, but at their discretion. Throughout the internship you will be asked to complete periodic evaluation forms regarding your experiences, and at the end of the program, you will receive a detailed reference letter from your supervisor, which will open the door for further career opportunities in China.
     

    Stipend

    This unpaid internship may include a stipend paid by the company for travel or lunch purposes during the internship period.

    Additional Opportunities

    All of your time will not be occupied by the internship program, or the language program. You will have hours available to capitalize on the fact that you are in China, and you will be able to explore various locations, and participate in many social activities, all of which are arranged and compliments of RWC.

    Guided Tours  

    Depending on the day, you can join one of the many unforgettable study adventures and explore a site such as the Great Wall, the Summer Palace, the Temple of Heaven, the Lama Temple, Tian'anmen Square, or the Forbidden City. Here is a perfect opportunity for you to practice your Mandarin, make some connections with other students, and immerse yourself in China’s deep history and culture. You won’t have to be bogged down with the details of finding money for entrance tickets, or registering to see a show; we will take care of all that for you.

    Business Salons

    RWC’s unique business salons is an excellent opportunity for you to network with successful, local and international entrepreneurs and young professionals. The locations will be ideal for conversations and the atmosphere will be relaxed, in order to allow you the opportunity to meet potential business partners, associates or friends. Who knows? You might meet your future marketing manager or investment partner.

Some academic year students may be qualified to apply for an X-class Visa. Some embassies and consulates may issue an L-class Visa regardless of the purpose for entering China. In these cases the Visa can also be converted on arrival. You may need an Invitation Letter, Admission Notice, or Visa Application for Study in China (JW202 form)   to obtain a Visa. These documents are provided by RWC when enrolment has been completed and Total Program Fees paid.
