ISAC Program is an excellent program. My placement at Anhui University in Fengyang has been a smooth one thanks to the hard work and dedication of ISAC as well as that of Mr Wang and students who have helped to make the transition easier. I was met at Shanghai Pudong airport by Mr Wang and put up in a hotel overnight. The next day I had the most pleasant experience of China’s fast train to Beng bu. I arrived at a magical time, the campus was clothed in the beautiful shades of Autumn. Fengyang is a small town with super friendly people making settling in so much easier.
Lucy Ji, the HR staff of the Program, has been a wonderful help to me from the first email invitation for a preliminary Skype interview through a daunting Z visa application and right up to my arrival in China. She guided me through the entire process, regularly keeping me updated and even now after almost a month in China continues to be very supportive in every way. I was sent the link to the Handbook for New Teachers and the section ‘Life Hacks in China’ is a mine of useful information which I still often refer to.
What would you improve about this program?
I think the program is perfect as it is, with a lot of dedication and hard work by the people who run the program. Their step by step guidance through the application process was invaluable.
