The aim of this module is to develop the work-related knowledge, skills and capabilities necessary to complete an internship and to pursue further work opportunities in China or in a China-related organisation. Internships must be approved and monitored by both Study Abroad and Internships and the Lau China Institute and can take place in the UK or abroad. The internship should allow students to put into practice, in a professional environment, the skills and knowledge gained through their degree studies. This module will enhance students' understanding of business and policy environments, organisational structures and working practices in China-related organisations through seminars, one-to-one consultations and the work placement itself. The module is delivered by Study Abroad and Internships with support from the Lau China Institute and Careers and Employability. Students will be required to undertake a minimum 15 day (105 hour) internship placement and will be provided with a seminar series, including a seminar on international work placements, which will equip them to find, secure and make the most of their internship and reflect critically upon the experience gained. Study Abroad and Internships and the Lau China Institute at King's College London have a range of national and international partner organisations who may offer high-quality internships to students. The Internships team will work to source and promote these opportunities and to support students in their applications via one-to-one consultations. Students are encouraged to apply for these opportunities but must also research and apply for opportunities independently. It is the responsibility of the student to find and complete an appropriate internship, and to fulfil the requirements of the internship module assessment in order to gain the credits required for the module.
