About Generation UK – China
Generation UK – China was launched by the British Council in 2013. By 2020, it aims to help 80,000 students from the UK boost their employability, enhance their long-term job prospects, and develop a global mind-set through study and work experience opportunities in China.
The programme offers funded internship placements and academic scholarships for UK students to gain international experience in China. By encouraging UK students to engage with China, Generation UK aims to bring young people from both countries closer together, increase mutual understanding, and pave the way to lasting links and partnerships between the UK and China.
The Generation UK – China campaign is supported by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS), and the Department for the Economy, Northern Ireland, the Welsh Government and the Scottish Government.
To find out more about the campaign and how you can get involved, please visit the British Council’s Generation UK – China website here.
If you are accepted for Generation UK funding, you will be able to do an 8 week internship in your chosen field, accommodation in a shared apartment with 2-3 other interns throughout your stay, receive full support from the IC team before, during and after your stay and you even get comprehensive travel insurance to cover your 8 week stay. This is a fantastic opportunity to be a part of a prestigious government funded programme, increase your international employability and enjoy all of the benefits of an InternChina programme for free!
