APPLICATION PROCESS

By submitting our Apply Now form, applicants are absolutely not obliged to continue the application process, participate in an InternChina programme or make any payment whatsoever to InternChina. Every applicant who submits the Apply Now form does agree that during any ongoing arrangement of a programme by InternChina, they agree to strictly abide by the following terms:

InternChina pays special attention in order to try and match each applicant to the most suitable internship host company, language course and/or accommodation. In order to achieve a transparent placement process and to ensure a suitable match is made, it is likely that InternChina will inform the applicant of a host company’s contact details and introduce the two parties in order to arrange an interview by phone or Skype. This is intended to ensure both the applicant and the host company are clear about what might be involved during the internship and the applicant can make an informed decision with regard to participating in the InternChina programme and undertaking the internship placement.

Information and contact details for host companies which are shared with applicants by InternChina are to be treated as strictly confidential. By engaging directly with a potential host company introduced to the applicant by InternChina, the applicant is absolutely not obliged to accept any offer of an internship placement made by the host company or to participate in the programme offered by InternChina. If the applicant does choose to accept such an offer from a host company introduced to them by InternChina and therefore participate in the programme arranged by InternChina, the applicant is bound to complete a separate booking form which will confirm the full details of the program, total price, payment terms, restrictions and full terms and conditions.

Applicants are prohibited from directly arranging an internship placement or any other related programme with host companies or for homestay accommodation, host families, introduced to them by InternChina. In cases where applicants are proven to be undertaking any form of internship placement or other related work, shadowing or study with host companies, or accommodation in a host family, whereby the contact details were shared with the applicant by InternChina, the applicant will be legally bound to pay a minimum programme fee of 12,900.- RMB (Chinese Yuan) to InternChina by a method specified under our funding page.
