6. What is the mentorship or advising program like?

The School of Journalism's international office is tuned to support and advise students in all aspects of their time in China, dealing with the usual administrative demands, and also to help in their personal adjustment needs. Individual lecturers are always available to counsel students about subject problems. Dr. David will be the coordinator to offer guidance for internship program, and each participant will have a supervisor for their thesis research.


7. What sorts of internships are available and what are the general demands of an internship in Shanghai?

The internship assignment requirements are listed on the website and students need to complete 20 days working off-site in a Shanghai-based company. Internships are broadly sourced by the university from the Shanghai media sector and can involve disciplines such as journalism, marketing, PR, film and multi-media. Some students have organized an internship before arriving in Shanghai and this is also acceptable as long as the company meets the course requirements and is approved by the unit co-ordinator. Past graduates have worked as reporters for local and foreign media, program assistants in local English-language TV, PR and marketing company assistants and in local culture festivals. A separate completion certificate is present on successful conclusion of the internship.
