About our team
We at 5CGroupEDU have experienced the internship search process first hand. Once upon our own time, we set out to find the right internship hosting program and left our homes in pursuit of the ideal internship experience that would have a huge career impact. We found the processes to be intricate and frustrating, and the internship hosting companies to be generalized rather than regionalized to sprawling economic localities. Not to mention the pricing and fee’s for such services tore a wider hall in our pockets, already gaping from the brunt of college loans. For this reason, it is our purpose and mission here at 5CGroupEDU to garner close rapports with respected companies in Hangzhou to allow for easy access to incoming interns at one of the most developed and economically thriving cities in all of China. Our easy and smooth step-by-step process, where we will always be involved and available to assist your entrance into China, creates less hassle without sacrificing affordability and quality of experience.
Once upon my own time, recognizing China was my preferred destination, I ambitiously set out to find the right internship placement program that would provide my vision of the ideal internship experience and have a huge career impact. I found the processes and resources of the program I used to be intricate and frustrating, and the internship hosting companies in general to be generalized rather than regionalized to sprawling economic localities in China. Not to mention the pricing and fees for such services tore a wider hole in my pockets, already gaping from the brunt of college loans, bills etc. For this reason, I have made it my mission here at 5CInternships to garner close rapports with respected, internationally-based companies in Hangzhou to allow for easy access to incoming interns in one of the most developed and economically thriving cities in all of China. Alongside my colleagues, whom also chose to intern in China, we relentlessly strive to offer an affordable, educationally and culturally stimulating, fun and exciting internship experience.
Looking forward to your arrival,

My China internship experience
My name is Daria. I am graduated from Jonkoping International Business School in Sweden. I’ve been searching for internship for a long time around the world. Finally, I found one in China, Hangzhou that was matching my professional goals and strivings.
I arrived in Hangzhou at the end of May. It was the onset of Asian summer, that’s why outside was a quite hot and humid. My company had reserved a hotel room for me, so I didn’t worry about where to stay the first days. Moreover, my company also helped me to find good accommodation with kitchen place, balcony area and a\c, nearby the office.
I used to work in a quite international environment. My colleagues were from USA , Holland, UK, France and China , so it was a lot of fun. Also, there were some interesting projects and meeting with delegations from UK and Africa. When you are working with international team you have to find a compromise, try listen more your colleagues and understand each other, at the same time you have to come to the only one possible solution that suits everybody. Also, all of my new friends here came from different parts of the world that is quite impressive.
During my internship in the company I had several trips in the factories in the Zeijiang province which produces the wind power blades, e-bikes and e-bicycles, solar panels, LED lights and others environmental-friendly products. That was gave me additional knowledge and general understanding of the products and markets where these products are in demand and what are the potential markets for the unique and new invented eco-products. In the beginning of June our company participated in the Beijing Wind Fair that is a great chance to acquire more information about wind and solar market , build new networks, and reach new customers for our company.
Our team has been involved in the different projects and tasks, such as E-bike project in Nigeria, BYD- E-vehicles promotion for European market, Dairy project for Chinese market, Hangzhou internship project for undergraduate and graduate student from around the world. Thanks to these projects we are still keep on working together . My China internship is the one of the best and unforgettable time in my professional experience and life!
Finally a few words about the location of the company. The Hangzhou area is one of the most scenic and picturesque province in China .If you have free time or weekends you can hike in the mountains, to see the ancient temples and national park . All the local sightseeing are close to downtown of Hangzhou. Moreover, the short trips to Ningbo, Shanghai and others cities are very convenient and fast, so you never be in idle ones you are here. Nightlife is also quite good. There are a lot of bars and clubs around downtown area, all the drinks and food for affordable price compare to Europe, USA and Canada.
Enjoy your internship in Hangzhou!!!
