Can I apply?

Are you a hard worker? Do you have an interest in China? Are you open to new experiences? Answer yes to all of these questions and you’re an ideal applicant.

How does the application procedure work?

First, we'll ask you to fill out an application form. If everything checks out, we’ll contact you for an interview. If all is clear after the interview we’ll ask for a deposit to secure you’re place on the program. We’ll then arrange an interview between you and your host company before taking full payment for the program and bringing you to China. 

When should I apply?

Ideally we'd like applicants to apply at least 8 weeks before the program start date, to ensure we have enough time to prepare your program and for you to process your visa.

What's not included in the program fees?

Not included in the program fees are your flights, insurance, daily living costs and visa fees.

Where do your interns come from?

Where don't they come from? We’ve had interns from every continent in the world.

What are the ages of others on the program?

The majority of participants are between 18 and 28 years old.

How does the visa process work?

It differs between countries, but generally it involves us sending you an invitation letter which you will take/send to the Chinese embassy/visa office in your home country, who will process your Chinese visa.

What are the program dates?

Monthly rolling. More details, please visit our website. 

Will you be there when I arrive in China?

Of course we will! We’ll meet you at the airport, take you to your accommodation and show you around. We’ll have an orientation within the first few days of your arrival, take you to your host company. Don’t worry, we’ll be there every step of the way.

What if I run into issues during my program?

We've got you covered. You will be provided contact details for Haiwei members of staff who you can chat to anytime. In the unlikely event of an emergency, give us a call and we’ll do all we can to help you out!

Should I get insurance?

Although an emergency situation is highly unlikely (China is one of the safest countries in the world), accidents do happen. It is STRONGLY ADVISED that you purchase full medical insurance to cover the entirety of your trip.

Do I have to study Chinese?

It's definitely advised that our interns do a language course during their program, but it is not required. However, it will make your experience a lot smoother (and more rewarding) if you try and learn the language.  

Are there any activities?

Yes. Monthly activities including city tour and social networking activities will be arranged.

I can speak some Chinese already. Do I need to start from scratch?

Nope! We can arrange a class suitable to your level with the school.

When do classes start?

You will start doing your Mandarin class from the first week of your internship. Classes will last 3 hours in a group or 2 hours individually per week.

What different kinds of industries are internships available in?

Here is a list of industries we’ve placed interns in before. If you don’t see your industry of choice on there, shoot us an email and we'll let you know!

What will my roles and responsibilities be during my internship?

This, of course, varies between industries, companies and roles. Your previous education and work experience will likely play a part in deciding the kinds of things you’ll be doing at your host company. If you’re ever unsure, or feel that you would like to take on more responsibilities, talk with your supervisor and let them know.

Will I be paid during my internship?

It depends on the duration of your internship and industry. If there is a stipend it will vary between 100-300RMB per working day. 

Can I stay in China after my program ends?

Many of our previous interns have done just that! Now, we can’t guarantee anything, but host companies may offer to keep you on full time at the end of your contract. Failing that, we can definitely point you in the direction of recruitment agencies and further job opportunities in China.

Where will I live?

We will try and find you accommodation close to your host company. It is also accessible by public. The quality of apartments in China is likely not to the standard most foreigners are used to, but we do try our best to find clean and suitable living environments for our interns. You will likely be sharing an apartment with other people and it will be kitted out with everything you need to live. But air conditioning, water and other facilities can vary between living locations.
