Loyola University Andalucía and The Beijing Center Sign A Virtual Internship Agreement
Loyola University Andalucía and The Beijing Center (TBC) reached an agreement to further engage Loyola University Andalucía student participation in The Beijing Center’s Virtual Internship Program, for the duration of two years, starting this summer 2021.
This partnership promotes the ongoing efforts and expansion of international partners, as The Beijing Center collaborates with European institutions and universities part of the Jesuit community. This partnership offers professional, cultural, and academic engagement to European students interested in a Chinese virtual internship experience.
As part of this agreement, effective June 1, 2021, qualified Loyola University Andalucía students will have the opportunity to enroll in TBC’s Virtual Internship Program. As part of the application and selection process, one qualified student will be selected for a full program scholarship. Meanwhile, all students part of the program will maintain their enrollment at Loyola University Andalucía for the duration of their internship with TBC.
With the upcoming summer break of 2021, many students continue to seek suitable and fulfilling professional and academic experiences, as the covid-19 pandemic continues to develop in unexpected ways. Through this partnership, students will receive an enhanced professional and cultural experience through Beijing, while maintaining their studies at their home university in Spain.
The Beijing Center’s Virtual Internship Program continues alongside its Semester Study Abroad and Intern Abroad programs, for all students interested in studying or interning abroad in Beijing. Many of the Beijing-based companies TBC has partnered with throughout the years for the traditional in-person Intern Abroad program, continue to work with our host students by placing them in tailored virtual internships, that still include the Virtual Internship Showcase component. The virtual program continues to support and accommodate the remote work and study practice enforced by the pandemic, as students and institutions work together to continue academic and cultural engagement.
