Huawei is offering students the opportunity to take part in its exciting new 'Seeds For The Future' programme this summer

Are you an undergraduate student looking for a life changing experience?

Are you excited by technical problems because you see them as opportunities to
grow as a person? Are you fascinated by the rise of Asia and ever wondered how to get practical experience working for a dynamic global business in China?

Huawei is offering UK undergraduates – studying STEM or related disciplines (e.g. Science,Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Computing) the opportunity to travel to China on a 4-week programme in July and August 2019.

Since 2011, Huawei has provided over 230 UK undergraduates with the opportunity to learn about China and to experience working in Huawei’s
dynamic global business HQ – an invaluable addition to any CV when looking for a job after graduation.

During the programme students will spend an initial period in Beijing where they will receive Mandarin language training from one of the best universities in Beijing and learn about Chinese culture.

There will be group tours to The Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, the Great Wall of China and the 2008 Olympic Park.

Students will then be flown to Shenzhen in Guangdong Province, where they will learn about Huawei’s international business culture and values and spend time learning about Huawei’s products and solutions. There will be visits to Huawei’s F1 Exhibition Centre; Enterprise Exhibition Hall; Logistics Centre; R&D labs and one of Huawei’s state-of-the-art
factory facilities.

At Huawei HQ students will also receive technical training from some of the finest professionals in the industry.

Please note that this is a non-salaried programme and participation in the programme does not imply that future employment will be offered by Huawei upon graduation, or any time in the future.

Huawei will cover all visa application costs and all travel and accommodation costs in China.

In addition Huawei will provide an allowance per student for sundry living expenses in China.
