Internship Options and Prices
LTL offers internships in two separate programs. Our Internship and Accommodation program is available from four weeks or more and includes accommodation as well as inclusive support. Our Internship Semester program lasts for a minimum of 16 weeks and up to a maximum of 22 weeks and includes four weeks of accommodation and a four-week intensive language course. For more details and prices, see below.
Option 1: Internship and Accommodation
This option allows for flexibility and ease. We will help find you an internship for as little as four weeks, up to a full year. The program includes:
- Organization of an internship within a company in Beijing or Shanghai
- Accommodation throughout your stay in a shared apartment small room
- Pickup at Beijing/Shanghai airport upon your arrival
- 24-hour support in China
- Visa assistance
- An international LTL social community
- A weekly trip, organized by LTL free of charge (expenses to be paid on the day)
Your included accommodation is in a shared apartment small room. Our shared apartments in Beijing are based next to the Communications University, just a few stops on the subway from the Central Business District and allow for more freedom during your stay. Our Shanghai location is equally as central. The bathroom is shared and bedding and towels are provided. Apartments are shared with Chinese students and possibly a foreign student or intern. There is limited use of kitchen facilities (fridge and microwave only) but there are many very cheap local restaurants located within a few minutes’ walk. WiFi and bills are included.
||Intern & Basic Accommodation
Due to the higher rental prices, a 200CNY/week Shanghai shared apartment surcharge applies for anyone going to Shanghai.
Internship Program Upgrades
With the Internship + Accommodation Program, it’s possible to make upgrades on your accommodation and by adding Chinese classes to your internship
Option 2: Internship Semester
The internship semester program lasts for a minimum of 16 weeks. Start your adventure in China by taking 4 weeks of Intensive Chinese classes at our language school in Beijing or Shanghai. Accommodation is included for these four weeks in either a local Chinese Homestay (great for those wanting to experience local Chinese culture and improve their language skills quickly) or in our Shared Apartments (a budget option that’s perfect for those wanting more freedom).
These Chinese classes are taken in small groups (maximum of six students), last for four hours a day from Monday to Friday and are organized for your Chinese level. They are a great way of meeting new friends in the city, getting involved with the LTL social calendar and most importantly, will give you some needed Mandarin language survival skills. At the end of your four weeks you will be able to navigate the subway, ask for directions and order your dinner in restaurants.
After four weeks LTL will assist you in finding your own further accommodation free of charge. If you wish to stay in your current homestay/apartment, this can be arranged for a fee if the school is told in advance. Your internship now begins but your time at LTL does not. You will get six hours of Chinese group classes (two hours, three times a week) included during the duration of your internship, taken outside working hours. These will help you to keep up your Mandarin level. (If no group class are suitable for your schedule/level, LTL will offer you two hours of 1-on-1 class a week at your school, office or home).
This is the perfect internship program for those wanting to incorporate work experience with a new language skill and are looking to make a lot of friends both locally and internationally. Included are the following:
- Airport pickup on arrival in China
- A four week Chinese Language Preparation Month at our school in Beijing or Shanghai with accommodation
- An internship in a company agreed upon by you in Beijing or Shanghai
- Part-time Chinese classes throughout your internship
- Assistance with finding accommodation for the duration of your internship
- 24hr support in China
- Visa assistance
- The LTL social life – become part of the family
- Weekly event or trip, organized by the school
