Special Notice on China

Due to extended timelines for governmental processes and approvals to legally work in China, we will not be moving forward with placements in China for the 2023-2024 application cycle. Placements in Kosovo are still proceeding as planned, and interested applicants are encouraged to apply. 

We are planning to move forward with placements in China for 2024-2025, with the process beginning in Fall 2023.
