GCU graduate Andy Law is to speak at a British Council workshop to encourage UK students to study or take up internships in China.

Andy will discuss his experiences of an internship in China at the Council’s Generation UK workshop at GCU on October 28.

Said Andy: “I was honoured to be asked by the British Council to share my experiences of studying and living abroad at the event. I had the opportunity to visit India and China while at GCU and spent this summer on an internship in Shanghai. I’d recommend travelling and experiencing other cultures to all students.”

The Generation UK project was launched in June and aims to help boost the numbers of UK students studying and interning in China to 15,000 over the next three years.

Adon Lawley, the British Council’sEducation Marketing Manager, said: “Generation UK’s primary goal is to support the ambition, academic achievement and international business skills of UK students by offering more opportunities to engage with China through studying or interning there. The campaign aims to encourage global perspectives and a competitive advantage in skills development for UK students to help shape them into international citizens and ambassadors for the UK.”

Generation UK internships run for two months in Beijing, Chengdu, Qingdao, Shanghai, Shenzhen and Zhuhai, and scholarships are available for study at universities across mainland China from one semester to an academic year.

Generation UK opportunities are open to UK citizens studying full-time courses at UK institutions. Book a place at the GCU Workshops here.
