Housing in Shanghai
As a Connect-123 intern on our Shanghai program you will have a number of housing options to choose from. Maybe you’re attracted to the idea of sharing a comfortable city apartment with young Shangainese professionals, or with other Connect-123 international interns. Or perhaps you’d like to immerse yourself completely in the local culture by participating in a homestay arrangement. After discussing the various options we are confident that we will find an arrangement that meets your needs and fits your budget for your Shanghai internship.
Our School of Record partner is University of California Irvine, and in parallel with your internship or volunteer position you are able to enroll in an online course at UCI that will grant you 3 graded transfer credits. The fee for these credits is only $600. Please check with your university if they accept transfer credits or reach out to us for more details. In addition, many students on our programs earn academic credit through their universities. Check with your university to find out if they grant credit for independent study, experiential learning, community service or internships and we’ll then liaise with your university to ensure that your project meets their requirements.
