Internships in China


Lotus Educational Foundation is happy to assist individuals who wish to participate in an internship while they are living in Beijing. Students may choose our Internship Only option, or they may choose to supplement their homestay language program with a part-time internship in the afternoons. Please contact us directly at info@lotuseducation.org for more information about our internship opportunities.

Lotus Beijing Office Internship Program

Each year, Lotus accepts applications from individuals interested in interning as a Program Assistant at our Beijing office during the summer session or any other time of the year for three months or more. Our interns learn the ins-and-outs of a non-profit organization as well as assist with program development. We particularly welcome applicants who have an interest in traditional Chinese culture and community service. A background in non-profit work is preferred, and some proficiency in Chinese is required for long-term interns.

To apply for our internship, please submit a 300 word statement to beijing@lotuseducation.org describing your personal background, your goals for the future, and how studying Chinese and working for Lotus Educational Foundation will help you meet your goals. Please also state your possible internship period, including starting and finishing dates. Additionally, please provide a copy of your resume, as well as a passport photocopy and a passport sized photo.

During your internship period, please note that the tuition for Beijing Language and Culture University, your travel costs and your personal expenses are not included. Our internship positions are unpaid. During your internship, you will work in Lotus Beijing Office located in Haidian. Lotus is able to provide interns with a "teach and stay homestay", where you will tutor English for your host family at least one hour each day in return for room and board. During your internship period, three meals per day are provided. Your host family will provide you with breakfast and dinner each day, and Lotus will provide you with lunch free of charge. Our office is located in Haidian District on Suzhou Street, which is near Zhongguancun.

Chinese Medicine Clinic Internship

We are currently featuring an internship with Shifang Taihe, a well-regarded Chinese Medicine Clinic located in the Haidian district of Beijing. The highly skilled doctors and nurses at this clinic use traditional Chinese understandings of the body and health in order to treat patients. Treatments include acupuncture, cupping, massage and gua-sha. Interns at Shifang Taihe will learn about traditional Chinese medicine and treatments by shadowing medical staff, attending lectures given by the doctors, and, depending on previous medical experience, perhaps assist with simple treatments. Some proficiency in Chinese and a background in Western or alternative/holistic medicine is preferred. See Cultural Activities for an article about our Chinese Medicine Workshop held at Shifang Taihe.
