EXPIRY NOTICE: This job has now expired and will not be accepting any more applications.

If you are a recent graduate, or are graduating this year and have a desire to enhance your employability in one of the world’s fastest growing and exciting economies, we have a programme for you.  Please note that this is not a job vacancy.

The Programme

Our 19 week programmes combine training and study in Chinese Language, Business and Culture at the prestigious Beijing Languages and Culture University, with seminars at the British Chambers of Commerce in Beijing. Following the programme there is an optional 4 week work placement. Single room, en-suite accommodation on the University Campus is included in the fee.

Why China?

Over the next 20 years China will rival the USA as the world’s dominant economy and, as it develops, those with an understanding of Chinese language and culture will enjoy significant career opportunities.

Your employability

Many company recruitment schemes now view working abroad as an essential part of a young employee's development. Our training and work experience programmes in China are designed to make your CV stand out.

Start date

The 4 week Summer School programme begins on 29th July 2010.

The 19 week programmes begin on 16tth September 2010 and late February 2011.

The Business view

During my time at the British Chamber of Commerce in China we employed several younger people at the start of their careers all of whom have now moved on to excellent jobs with great career prospects, both here in China and back in the UK. This supports my view that in an increasingly competitive market, a period of work in China with the right organisation can really make your CV ‘stand out from the page’ and offer a unique and valuable learning experience unparalleled anywhere else on this planet!.” Chris Baron, President and CEO of CJB Holdings in China, and former Managing Director of the British Chamber of Commerce in China.

What our students say about the programme:

“It really was the most amazing experience and has changed me for the better. The only problem now is that I want to go back there as soon as possible! I am so glad I went to that careers fair in Leeds and met Paul last April.”

'The teaching staff are incredibly patient, easy to talk to and very helpful with any problems – course related or not. The level and speed of the course is exactly what I was looking for.'

‘One positive aspect of working in China is that the Chinese are more than willing to listen to ideas and to gain a Western perspective, and I have found that .. I am given a lot more responsibility and respect than I would in England considering my inexperience in the industry’

'A fantastic life-changing experience'.

"Coming to China has easily been the best experience of my life ... I would however like to express a huge amount of gratitude in saying thank you to everyone at China Pathways, and to the staff in China that work with the China Pathways group in allowing all this to happen."

'Really really good. Mary and Echo were both there to pick me up at the airport after a long flight and helped me to the University, sorted out my accommodation, a Chinese SIM card and general information about Beijing. Could not have felt more at ease in arriving in a country where I did not understand the language'.
