Foreigners' intern help

EDUCATION authorities plan to help international university students find intern opportunities in the city by working with local firms and units to set up internship bases.

While the city has already built 34 internship bases for Chinese university students, the first foreign student internship base is expected to be launched in Renji Hospital.

This will provide internships to foreign students studying nursing and medicine, Yang Weiren, an official in charge of international exchange and cooperation at Shanghai Education Commission, told Shanghai Daily at a meeting with lawmakers yesterday.

The commission will contact companies and attempt to develop more internship opportunities for international students through subsidies to these firms.

Companies involved in the scheme will sign a contract with the commission detailing how many students they will take in a year.

This initiative is among efforts by the city to improve its higher education resources and services in a bid to attract more foreign students.

The target is for the percentage of overseas students in local colleges to rise to 15 percent by 2020, compared with 5.9 percent in 2008.
