Our Covid-19 Guarantee gives you reassurance and helps you plan ahead in turbulent times. 

Why China?

China has a rich and ancient culture that is still very evident in daily life, and in sharp contrast it is emerging as a technology super power, which is transforming the urban landscape.

Due to it’s vast size, it has a hugely diverse geography and climate, and is home to some iconic landmarks and places of interest such as the Great Wall, the Forbidden City and the terracotta army. It is also home to the giant panda, China’s most famous endangered and endemic species of mammal.

Placement Year International - Paid placements in China


Our paid placements in China are currently available in Shanghai and several other cities nearby.

Shanghai, on China’s central coast, is the country’s largest city and a global financial hub. Its heart is the Bund, a famed waterfront promenade lined with colonial-era buildings while across the Huangpu River is the futuristic skyline of Pudong district. Our other locations include Suzhou (China’s Venice), Nanjing, Wuxi, Hangzhou, Changzhou, Ningbo, Yancheng, Nantong and Shaoxing. All are fast developing cities and within easy reach of Shanghai by train.
