    The world is changing and we students are at the forefront of that change. From the change in tuition fees to the change in the global economy that we will shape and work in as graduates (hopefully), things are changing rapidly.

    Several years ago there would be fierce competition to get into university and get a graduate job after three or four years. Now the competition is fierce to just get a one month internship.

    As the graduate career market toughens, graduates will have to work harder and be smarter to separate themselves from the competition. Whilst some may think this means doing postgraduate degrees and rubbing shoulders at countless networking events, there is another way.

    Internships in China are now becoming increasingly available. Pursuing such a course can show development of personal character, adaptability and provide insight into the working culture of the world's future economic superpower.

    As the world becomes a smaller place and students are increasingly internationalising, working abroad is no longer seen as a far-fetched pipe dream. The experience it provides can be just as or indeed more valuable than a post-graduate or professional qualification.

    Despite the dire jobs market in the UK, this is an exciting time for internationally minded students.
    Do you think interning abroad is a worthwhile pursuit?
