Experience Working in China
The WLSA Internship Program places successful applicants in a globally recognized company in China where they gain practical experience working in a diverse office environment in one of the fastest growing economies in the world.
Internships in China are suspended until further notice.
Due to the outbreak of coronavirus we will be suspending Internships in China until further notice. Although there have been no reports of the virus in our school community, we are taking extra precautions to keep WLSA students, faculty and staff safe.
Why Intern Abroad?
- Development of professional skills such as leadership, team building, budgeting and negotiation
- Experience the working environment in China
- Learn and practice Mandarin with native speakers
- Cooperate with an international group to develop a project
Every year, WLSA hosts an internship in Shanghai. The internships typically are hosted by financial companies. The program lasts 13 days which includes the assignment at the host company and cultural activities in the evenings or weekends.
- Applications are open from now until 22 March. Applicants will be notified of the selection results by 12 April.
- We prefer if students come with a chaperone, the costs for the accommodation for the chaperone will be shared by WLSA and the associate school sending the chaperone.
- Participants need to apply for a visitor visa (F visa) or a tourist visa (L visa). WLSA will provide a visa invitation letter in support of the application.
What Does it Cost?
The participants have to pay for:
- Round-trip airfare

- Pocket money
WLSA and the host company will arrange and pay for:
- The program and assignment at the host company

- Accommodation: we will cover all costs for the students’ accommodation and half of the costs for the chaperones’ accommodation.
