For all parents who are considering an internship as a way to further their son or daughter’s development, this section offers some information as to what to prepare, carry out and expect.
Initial assessment: After receiving the application, we will assess the suitability of the candidate to our available programmes. It’s our priority to create the perfect fit between intern and company, and we will always have your son or daughter’s best interests at heart.
Confirmation: Successful applicants will be notified after the interview and asked to confirm their place on the internship programme by paying a deposit 5 working days after receiving their offer. The offer needs to be accepted within this time frame due to limited numbers of placements and due to others potentially being interested in the role. This time frame allows us to organise the best accommodation and deal with all the necessary papers in time for your son or daughter’s arrival. The remainder of the programme fee will be due one month after paying the initial deposit or 8 weeks before the start of the internship.

24 hr Support Network
Once they have arrived, your son/daughter will be met at the airport by one of our representatives. Their flights will have been tracked from start to finish and they will be met as soon as they arrive at the airport. If flights are delayed please do inform us if possible. You will be provided with a mobile number and email address to inform us of any such eventualities. Once met by a Noble house representative we will take them straight to their accommodation where there will be a meal waiting, with one of our welcome packs too. Everything will be there to make them as comfortable as possible to help with their transition and to settle in.
First days in China
The first few days will be set aside for settling in to their new environment. These initial stages will be about meeting the team, fellow interns and adjusting to their surroundings. There will also be a few meetings and seminars to attend. We will use these initial days to register with the local authorities, and dealing with all the administration which will need to be taken care of. All internationals need to deal with such issues throughout Asia Pacific, though rest assured we are here to assist and help with what would otherwise be quite an ordeal. In this time we will be in constant contact with you, the parents at home, sending you information regarding mobile numbers and other contact details, and making sure you are aware of all that has and is happening.
Health and Safety
We provide a 24/7 helpline to all interns in case of any emergencies. We have personnel on call to help and assist. Our staff are briefed and have the sufficient training to deal with such issues to a high standard. All programme participants are given Emergency Cards in their start up kit, containing information regarding their place of work/study, accommodation, and all in local characters. If in doubt they can just show their emergency card and jump in a taxi, if they do become a little lost at some point. Alternatively, they can just give their local Noble House Asia representative a call.
