Go aboard China internship study abroad was the one of the best things to happen to me!!! I did the semester abroad program where I stayed with the cutest Chinese host family they were so kind to me!!! Kinder then the family I have now lol I actually miss them and think of them often even though it's been a few months since I left the program. I also got to work in an amazing engineering firm Wison were I had the most loving and hilarious coworkers, I literally just fit right in ! Lastly I want to talk about my international bff Jane who treated me like her own sister. I really couldn't ask for a better guide / friend, I still keep in touch with her through Instagram and I miss her jokes.If I had any questions or problems she was there to help me as best as she could.GAC I would recommend to a friend or any one reading this. Even when i wasn't in the city of Shanghai GAC still helped me, plan , get and make sure I was safe during my trip to Beijing. I love GAC!!!
My intern in china has been really great! Lucie has been a great help for me and the apartment I am staying in is wonderful.
My China homestay family Grace has been very very nice and patient with me, as well as Lucie who has provided me with constant guidance and feedback!
I have to admit it is a great relief to know that I can call her anytime!
I was very very pleased by the welcome, and I am very thankful to have had Lucy around!
"What made my internship study abroad really special was not only gaining professional knowledge, but also my eyes have been opened to the cultural side of China, and how that affects work and business practices on a daily basis."

I would definitely recommend "Go abroad China"study abroad China without a once of hesitation, their shagnhai study abroad give you just the correct balance between freedom and their fun organized events. You can always get in touch with any of them if you need help which is very reassuring. The coordinators are fantastic people that I had the chance to meet around good Chinese dinners and weekend activities. By the way, just a little advice for vegetarians: in China the menus are in Chinese so tell the ‘fuwuyuan’ (the waitress) ‘wo chi su’, which means that you are a vegetarian. The staff will be able to help you choose your food.
My name is Tanya, a new graduate from Australia. My proficiency of Chinese before doing the program was almost non-existent. I chose to do the full internship package at Qingdao.
My finance internship was at a company called Lujinsuo of roughly 60 employees. The internship description included the typical financial jobs you would expect –prepare financial reports, provide financial advice, business analysis. I enjoyed my work so much, and I love my co-workers. They helped me a lot, and they took care of me so much during my internship time there. I really appreciate…
If you are not a big city person and dislike the big crowds such as in Beijing, I would definitely recommend Qingdao. Qingdao is clean, the weather is moderate, has beaches, beautiful scenery, and the local people are quite nice. The only downside is that there is less culture and things to do than the big cities. You will have to find ways to keep yourself entertained. It is also hard to find other foreigners. I chose the shared apartment, but my roommate left after one month. I would recommend either – you get to meet someone new or grow independent.
My Chinese definitely improved and I became more independent as a result of living by myself in a foreign country. GAC was satisfactory. I was able to quickly come to China and experience a different culture and learn a lot. The staffs in Beijing were pleasant enough during the application process and were quick to reply. The GAC representative in Qingdao city was welcoming, friendly, and tried her best to help with all my problems. She definitely made a big difference and enriched my stay in Qingdao. On Sundays, she would take me to see a lot of what Qingdao had to offer. I wish I can come back again in the future.
