Hubei es­tab­lishes largest off-cam­pus in­tern­ship base for in­ter­na­tional stu­dents

Changjiang Weekly - - CONTENTS -

An Off-Cam­pus In­tern­ship Base for In­ter­na­tional Stu­dents was jointly es­tab­lished by the Exit-En­try Ad­min­is­tra­tion of the Wuhan Pub­lic Se­cu­rity Bureau, Wuhan Fiber­home Tech­ni­cal Ser­vices Co., Ltd. and Huazhong Univer­sity of Sci­ence and Tech­nol­ogy (HUST) on May

8. The base could pro­vide 200 to 300 in­tern­ships per year and will be­come the largest such base for in­ter­na­tional stu­dents in Hubei.

Ac­cord­ing to the Wuhan Pub­lic Se­cu­rity Bureau, the city is one of China's rich­est ed­u­ca­tional re­sources with over

9,000 in­ter­na­tional stu­dents from dozens of coun­tries. The fig­ure is ex­pected to in­crease to over 17,000 by 2020.

As more com­pa­nies in Wuhan are in­volved in in­ter­na­tional busi­ness, a spe­cific need for in­ter­na­tional in­tern­ships is grow­ing. The in­ter­na­tional stu­dents do­ing in­tern­ship com­bine the­ory with prac­tice in an off-cam­pus en­vi­ron­ment where they can learn about di­verse cul­tures so as to be well adapted to so­ci­ety.

To this end, the Wuhan Pub­lic Se­cu­rity Bureau has made many in­no­va­tive re­forms, which in­clude mak­ing pref­er­en­tial poli­cies for in­ter­na­tional stu­dents in Wuhan. For in­stance, an ex­cel­lent in­ter­na­tional post­grad­u­ate who has ob­tained a mas­ter's de­gree from a Chi­nese univer­sity can ap­ply di­rectly for a work per­mit in Wuhan. This en­cour­ages in­ter­na­tional stu­dents to have in­tern­ships out­side of school and seek em­ploy­ment in China. This April, Fiber­home Tech­ni­cal Ser­vices Co., Ltd. be­came a demon­stra­tion in­tern­ship base for in­ter­na­tional stu­dents in Wuhan.

Ac­cord­ing to the agree­ment, HUST and Fiber­home will use cur­ricu­lum that con­forms to the de­mand of in­dus­trial de­vel­op­ment and will be a base that pro­vides 200 to 300 tai­lor­made in­tern­ships an­nu­ally to se­lected can­di­dates. The in­ter­na­tional stu­dents rated as ex­cel­lent in in­tern­ship per­for­mance eval­u­a­tions will have op­por­tu­ni­ties to be em­ployed world­wide by Fiber­home.
