InternChina is excited to announce the launch of a ground-breaking full year paid placement programme in Taipei.
InternChina’s ‘Year in China’ is a groundbreaking programme which enables you to complete a paid placement year in China for the first time. Alongside the minimum working hours required to accredit the placement, InternChina works with you, your host companies and your university to ensure placements fulfill academic requirements and workplace health and safety standards. Placements are paid and you will receive unrivaled pre-departure and on-place support from InternChina’s experienced team.

Application deadline for Taipei – Ongoing
*Placements start and finish any time of the year, just get in touch with your preferences
*Salary during placement in Taipei depends on the amount negotiated with the placement company, national minimum wage is approx £3.5 per hour (£500) per month.
Are the placements paid?
Yes. As with all InternChina programmes, you will know exactly how much you will be paid, interview with the placement company and confirm your placement before committing to the programme. The salary for Taipei placements will easily cover living expenses (rent, food etc).
Is there a programme fee?
Yes, this is listed in the table above. The fee includes comprehensive support from InternChina throughout the placement, all visa fees, travel & health insurance plus much more!
Do I need to speak Chinese to participate?
This usually depends on the placement company – Most of our partner companies don’t require any Chinese language skills though.
As you will be living in Taipei for a while, we do encourage you to do some self learning of the basics though to help you settle in.

Taipei is the capital city of Taiwan, located in the north of the island, only a short metro ride away from the beach. The city is home to around 3 million people and one of the tallest buildings in the world (Taipei 101). Free wifi throughout the city, one of the best transportation systems and amazing street food… no wonder Taiwan won the top country in the world with the best quality of life! (source).
