Huawei 'Seeds for the Future' Programme

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? If the answer to these questions is “yes”, we want to hear from you!

Huawei’s ‘Seeds for the Future’ Programme is a fantastic opportunity for UK undergraduate STEM students to travel to China on a 4-week work experience programme in August 2020, gain experience in a dynamic global business and learn about Chinese culture first-hand.

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

All visa, accommodation and travel costs for successful applicants will be covered by Huawei. An allowance for sundry living expenses in China will also be provided.

Application deadline: Sunday 26 January 2020 23:59pm
