What we’re about at the University of
Sussex is transforming lives, unleashing potential. We’re a major university
partner for the Generation UK China internship scheme, which is about enhancing outward mobility of British students to China. China’s one of economic powerhouses –
world trade is dependent on the prosperity and the growth in the China
economy. By the end of this year we will have sent 250 of our students to take
up internship opportunities in China. We believe it can serve as a beacon for the rest of the UK higher education sector. It’s clear that they come back and Excel
when they return. Employers want applicants who have a good understanding
of the globalized world, who have some linguistic skills, who had experience of
living and working overseas, so it’s very very important for our students it’s
about releasing their potential, and that can only benefit British society and
enhance the interests of the United Kingdom.
