    31E Accelerated Beginning Mandarin for Engineering Students First Quarter to prepare them for a summer international internship I AM ON A FELLOWSHIP AND AM LIMITED TO 10 UNITS CAN I AUDIT THE LANGUAGE COURSE SO THAT I DON T USE UP MY UNITS No It is the policy of the language center that all language courses must be taken for credit and no auditors are allowed You will need to work out with your advisor or student services manager how to accommodate this class into your academic plan ABOUT THE ESSAY IN THE APPLICATION IS THERE SOMETHING ABOUT MYSELF THAT I SHOULD FOCUS ON The essay asks you to answer two questions The first one is your statement of purpose It is important that we see that interning abroad helps you to fulfill your educational career goals Also we want to know that you ll be able to handle working abroad for 3 months so any information about previous travel experience experience with other cultures or generally openness to new experiences would help The second essay helps us to evaluate your fit with that particular position We need to know why you re applying for that position and what particular skills you re bringing to it If you re selected in the first screening processes at Stanford the essay will be given to the hiring company so it should also convince them that they d be excited about having you on board for this position WHO PROVIDES FUNDING FOR MY INTERNSHIP Both the School of Engineering and the host company provide funding for your internship i e round trip airfare a salary for housing and meals If you plan to travel or have extra expenses you should prepare funding for yourself I AM AN INTERNATIONAL STUDENT WILL AN INTERNSHIP ABROAD AFFECT MY STATUS IN THE U S You must check with the International Center about how traveling will affect your current U S visa WHAT IF I NEED TO ARRIVE LATER OR LEAVE EARLIER The goal of this program is to give students an extended immersive experience abroad Therefore we expect that students will remain in their internship placement for the full 12 weeks of this program unless they have advance written permission from GEP staff and the internship host company CAN I INTERN LONGER THAN THREE MONTHS Some of the companies will allow even encourage an internship longer than 3 months The program will support stays up to 6 months as long as the student does not officially graduate before the end of their internship If you re interested in a 6 month stay please indicate this possibility in your application WHEN WILL I MEET THE OTHER INTERNSHIP PARTICIPANTS You will meet the other internship participants during the pre departure orientation program in Spring Quarter WHAT IF MY PASSPORT EXPIRES OR IF I DON T HAVE ONE You are required to make sure to have a passport that is valid six months after the date of departure with at
