Our mission is to offer our interns

the best possible adventure.

SII Internships & Immersion Programs (SII) was founded in 2010 by a group of professionals that have been living and working in China for over a decade. Since its establishment, over 500 students from around the world have participated in our various SII programs.

SII is well established in the academic sector of Chengdu. We have established long-term partnerships with many of the leading academic institutions in the city, as well as with local government offices that support our programs.

Since SII has already been operating in China for many years, we know the business scene in Chengdu and are constantly adapting and improving our programs to match the pace of the evolving Chinese market. Our team is a winning blend of Chinese and foreigners. We are not 9-5 workers which leaves room for flexibility and innovation, and we LOVE it!

Even after living abroad for so many years, we still get a bit home sick, so we like to treat our students and interns more like a family. Therefore, we have social events, dinners, and other activities with our students and interns, all while providing them with the most professional service, utilizing our vast experience and connections in the city.

  • We Care About You – we treat each intern as a person, not a number
  • The Right Program – we search high and low to find the perfect internship just for you. Guaranteed.
  • An Adventure – we strive to make this adventure as comfortable and unforgettable as possible


Our team is the heart of Sichuan Internships and Immersion Programs. We dedicate ourselves to ensuring quality care for each intern individually.
