  • Katarina from Croatia
    Internship Semester
    Chinese PR and Media Consultancy Company, Beijing

    Working in a Chinese company was a very interesting and challenging experience. I was the only foreigner in my department and my colleagues quickly started taking me to meetings with foreign clients. Later on my company sent me on several business trips throughout China and it was great to be part of a real PR team.

  • Felix from Germany
    Intern and Accomodation
    British Software Company, Beijing

    During my internship in Beijing I am challenged at work every day, have so far participated in several very interesting projects and have been able to finally apply what I studied at university in a real business. The team is very nice and I am very sad that I will have to leave Beijing so soon, I will definitely come back.
