Go Abroad China Reviews
Internship Program in Qingdao
Submitted by Tanya - Tufts University | March 22, 2017
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 job duty included the typical financial jobs you would expect –prepare financial reports, provide financial advice, business analysis, marketing statistics collection, and revising some contracts. , etc.
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. I would recommend the language program as well.
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.
Internship Program in Shanghai
Submitted by Haley - Carnegie Mellon University | March 22, 2017
My overall trip: very good, I came to Shanghai. I learned a lot and meet amazing people. I feel more confident in myself and my career.
My company: It’s a good company, and it is as work beneficial as I’d hoped. Many tasks were much related to marketing, and that’s what I expected. The people were all very nice. I still learned a lot about Asian work ethic.
GAC: I think this is a good program. I’m glad I worked with GAC and very happy to get to know Jane! I think GAC puts a lot of effort into working with interns.
My internship experience with GAC
Submitted by Austin - - | March 06, 2017
Overall I enjoyed my experience with GAC. I was pleased with the amount of knowledge I learned and the new experiences I went through during my internship as a financial analyst at a finance company which GAC found on my behalf. The internship made me realize how fast things move in the finance industry and I feel it has prepared me well for the transition from university to the work force. The diversity of the work I completed made me realize my capabilities and had me further develop my skillet, and consolidated my interest in the industry. The networking opportunities to work alongside partners and analysts from different backgrounds will no doubt accelerate my career. In the future I would like to undertake another internship before I officially commence my professional career.
GAC also organised activities throughout my time in China, and provided valuable assistance when required.
Summer internship in China
Submitted by Billy Osondu - University of California | January 16, 2017
I joined Go Abroad China internship program for 4 month in 2016, and initially, I wasn’t sure what to expect, I have heard lots of other students’ experiences from Gooverseas, and all of them were positive, but I wasn’t sure how I would handle being that far away from home. After spend one month in china with Go Abroad China, the GAC group really become a family. Throughout the experience, we got to immerse ourselves into the Chinese culture. I feel like on my internship I had enough time in my work, and during my weekend, GAC gave me plenty of time to explore. The Chinese classes were very interesting, and my favorite part was getting to see so much of China through an academic eye, and really getting to understand the Chinese culture. GoAbroadChina internship was a life changing experience which can't be rivaled by any other program. I would like to save some money and go back to China again in the next year.

Learn Chinese in China，the best days of my life
Submitted by Andy - - | January 05, 2017
I had the best time during my study abroad in China. I was able to experience the nightlife, have home cooked Chinese food, go shopping in local shops, and enjoy touristy places in and around shanghai. I was able to travel to different places in China such as, Beijing, Suzhou, Hangzhou and Shenzhen. I was also able to visit Hong Kong and Macau. This was all done in a short amount of time but has remained as some of my best memories. I met people from around the world and was able to pick up in Chinese. I would definitely recommend studying abroad in China and doing it through Go Abroad China because their staff was wonderful and all of the activities we were able to do were awesome. We were taken to the Chinese food message, learn the Taiji, visited the museum in Shanghai, watched an acrobatic show and so much more!
How could this program be improved?
If I had to change one thing it would be to be able to live with the GAC local Chinese family rather than live in the campus where it was mainly American students. I wanted to be able to interact with local Chinese students.
