AustCham China runs unique programs for students from Australian universities and recent graduates which provide opportunities for work experience, mentoring and cultural training. 

AustCham China has partnered with FESCO (Beijing Foreign Enterprise Human Resources Service) the leading HR services provider in China, to provide the only internship program in China that guarantees a 100% legal intern visa for students. This program is available for people of all nationalities and will secure interns a placement in a fortune 500 company in China. In light of current COVID related travel restrictions, we are offering virtual and part-time internships that students can undertake remotely. AustCham China will facilitate linking the student with their placement company and overseeing the internship throughout its duration.
