Chinese Careers Certificate

Stand out from the crowd

China sends significantly more students to the UK than any other nation, with 106,530 students from China enrolled at University in 2017/18.1

We know that extra careers provision would be beneficial to support Chinese students' career planning and job searching in China, and are excited to introduce our new Chinese Careers Certificate.

The certificate consists of a series of workshops designed specifically for Chinese students returning to their native country, and is designed to reward students efforts for their attendance and to help increase their employability outcomes.




为了帮助我们的中国毕业生完善职业计划,寻找工作,并在回国就业中更具竞争力,兰卡斯特大学为中国学生量身打造了中国职业生涯证书 (Chinese Careers Certificate)。
