Spend two months in China with a Generation UK – China internship

Live in one of six booming Chinese cities while gaining experience in an industry of your choice. There are start dates throughout the year – choose the date which suits you.

Applications are open now. The deadline is 2 December 2018 (23:59 BST).

Who can apply?

Current undergraduate and postgraduate students at UK universities, and those who have recently left university. See the full eligibility criteria.

Why should I go?

New industries and work opportunities in China are rising faster than the skyscrapers that accommodate them, and China may soon overtake the US as the world’s largest economy.

**Cancelled**Charity Board Members Initiative

17/10/2018

Apologies for any inconvenience.

When: Thursday 18th October 2018

Time: 4.00pm – 6.00pm

Where: Seminar Rooms 1 and 2 Campus Life Lounge, Level 1 George Moore Building

  • Do you want to boost your CV?
  • Do you want to enhance your employability skills?
  • Do you want to help a charity to set its direction and learn how it works?

At present, in Scotland, only around 8 per cent of charity board members are under the age of 35 and this means many charities are missing out on a younger perspective on their strategy and performance. Also young people are missing out on the opportunity to make a difference while gaining valuable experience for their CV.

This is a great initiative to encourage students:

  • to find out a bit more about how charities are governed and what they do;
  • to attend some relevant training on the board role; and
  • potentially to become board members of a charity.

Come along and find out more about how you could get involved – https://bit.ly/2PAuOGo
