The Internship: We’ll give you a few weeks to settle into your language program and figure out your workload. The week before the placements begin, you will take part in an Internship Orientation with our partners CRCC Asia. This will be a short briefing on the internship you’ve chosen, as well as outlining how to get the most out of your placement. Your internship placement will take place 3-5 days a week for 3 months. Your last few weeks will be spent back on full time study to make sure you are ready for your exams at the end of the semester.
The Volunteering: Each month, you will join other international and Chinese students from Tsinghua University’s department of Poverty Alleviation through Education on a weekend trip to different schools in rural China to aid with volunteer work and provide extra hands for ongoing projects. It will give you a unique opportunity to visit smaller towns outside of Beijing, which not many people get to see. While the volunteering can be a bit challenging (although always fun!), remember it is a meaningful way to make a difference, as well as boost your resume, increase your self awareness, and re-assess your future goals and aspirations.
