In 2014 we delivered the first internship and field trip programmes to DeMontfort University (Leicester – UK) as part of their #DMUglobal initiative. The programmes were part-funded by the university and involved a 2 week intensive introduction to language, culture and careers for 10 students in Chengdu. We also delivered 8 week internship programmes for 14 students, including pre-departure briefing in person in the UK, full support on-site in China, accommodation and ongoing pastoral care. 

“InternChina has been a supplier for #DMUglobal since the launch of our programme in January 2014. They have played a significant role in helping De Montfort University deliver its ground-breaking initiative to offer meaningful international experiences to our students. InternChina successfully organised a bespoke field trip to Chengdu for DMU students from a range of disciplines which gave them a unique insight into Chinese culture, history, language and business practices.

Additionally, a number of DMU students spent 8 weeks in China doing internships at various companies in Zhuhai, Chengdu and Qingdao through the InternChina programme. InternChina’s role in sourcing internships and providing all the necessary support ensured that our students had the opportunity to work in exciting, international environments whilst expanding their cultural horizons.

Their expertise, passion, youthfulness and professionalism have ensured a successful cooperation that we look forward to developing in the future.”
