During the initial NYU Shanghai orientation you’ll meet with representatives from a wide variety of different organizations and businesses that you’ll have the possibility to intern with during your time in Shanghai. Completing an internship in Shanghai is an excellent opportunity to gain valuable skills and real-life experience in the world’s fastest growing economy. Internships are available in areas such as marketing, engineering, investing, television production, publishing, advertising, event management and education among others. Many of the organizations seeking interns are foreign-based and do not require advanced Chinese language proficiency, although it is appreciated.

Volunteering in Shanghai will introduce you to another side of Chinese culture and bring you into direct contact with many facets of the city you may not otherwise experience. You could donate your time working with a local school’s program to educate children of migrant workers, or perhaps spend a day a week teaching English in a local school, or lend a hand at a children’s orphanage. New volunteer and service activities become available to NYU Shanghai students on a regular basis.
