THE DESTINATION

Taipei

– 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).

FAQs

Are the placements paid?

Yes. By law, host companies will need to provide a salary of around £600 per month. The salary for our Taipei placements will easily cover living expenses (rent, food etc).

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.

What about flights and accommodation?

Flights are not included, so the cost of getting to and from Taiwan would need to be covered by the successful applicant. Accommodation is also not included, but we will help to arrange this for when you arrive and will show you around the best parts of the city to live based on your budget and location of host company.

How many hours will I be on placement?

Our Taipei placements are full time, so you will work roughly 40 hours per week. Monday to Friday.

Which sectors are available?

We have a wide range of sectors available, including marketing, sales, finance, design, law, trade, consulting, media, hospitality and tech. Our full range of available placements is listed here and will be added to considerably over the course of 2018.

Which visa will I have?

For the Taipei programme you will be issued a working holiday visa. InternChina will help you register with the labour bureau once in Taipei also. All visa application fees are included in the programme fee and InternChina will guide you through the visa application process.
