Shanghai has become like a magnet attracting more and more people from across the world. It is a city full of opportunities and challenges and especially with China’s opening up to the outside world and entry into the WTO, more and more foreign companies are establishing their base in China. Shanghai, as the economic and finance center of China , attracts tens of thousands of investors both from home and abroad. So, if you decide to put your gap year to good use, here is the chance. Enrol in one our gap year programs and intern at reputed companies in Shanghai, as it is playing an increasingly important role in the world economy. The rapid development of Pudong New Area, the Zhangjiang high-tech park, the Waigaoqiao tax-free zone, the 88-story Jinmao Building, among others, all show the strong economic strength and the promising future of Shanghai. There is an old Chinese saying: “You are able to pick up gold on the streets of Shanghai.”

Life in Shanghai is both colourful and exciting. You can go for leisurely strolls in the Shanghai Museum and taste cuisine from China or from other parts of the world in restaurants throughout the city. With your local friends, you can have a pot of tea in a quaint teahouse in Yu Gardens, appreciate the unique international architectural style of the buildings in the Bund, take a night cruise on the Hangpu River, or just spend an evening in the taverns on the famous Tavern Road. You can also bargain with street vendors at the Xiangyuang clothing wholesale market and get your hands on some amazing bargains. Although the street vendors only have a scant knowledge of English, they are quite capable of communicating with international customers from having dealt with hordes of foreigners and tourists, who regularly buy clothes from them. Eastern and Western cultures come together in this unique city; so you will feel comfortable working, studying as well as living here.More About Our Trip to Shanghai - Each summer we lead a group of our students to this city.
