I interned in Beijing with a petrochemical consultancy company. This was a fantastic opportunity to learn more about my sector will gaining invaluable work experience abroad, which looks fantastic on CVs. The workload was fair and I learnt a lot about a few specific topics through conducting patent research for the company, ending in a report and presentation to colleagues. The social side of the internship was incredible and probably the best experience of my life! I can honestly say I have friends for life and have developed an extensive network whilst interning in China which could be very useful for the future. I would highly recommend this programme, it really is the opportunity of a lifetime and you will meet so many people and do so many amazing things and that alone makes it worth it!
