All internships must meet the following requirements:

1.  Students must intern In a Chinese-speaking professional setting within Mainland China, preferably with a Chinese organization. The most beneficial work environments for Flagship interns are those with the least number of colleagues who are native-level English speakers.

2.  Teaching English can not be a primary job responsibility.

3.  Students must work full-time for a period of at least 4 months.  Part-time work started prior to the end of the academic portion of the program will not count towards this requirement.

4.  Students' internships must correspond to the participant’s field of interest and abilities, subject to certain political or cultural limitations. Certain internship locations are highly discouraged due to safety concerns.
