Internships and Educational Programs

The following Terms and Conditions apply to all Participant(s) or applicant(s) (hereinafter “you”, “your”, or “Applicant” or “Participant”), in any internship, training program, educational course or similar offering referred hereunder as the “Program” offered by Internships In Asia, (herein after referred to as "we", "our", "us" "the Company" or "Internships In Asia").

By accepting your place and participating in any of Internships In Asia’s Programs, you agree to be bound by the following terms and conditions as described below.

1. Internships In Asia undertakes, subject to these terms and conditions and unless otherwise agreed, to do the following:

a. To provide the participant with a contract with an Asian business for a work placement or internship at a company in Asia;

b. To provide an appropriate visa to the destination country;

c. To provide an invitation letter and contract from the host company;

d. To provide contact details of representatives in the destination country in case of any difficulties or problems experienced;

e. To provide a welcome packet for the participant.

Internships In Asia will also offer optional access, through our partners, to furnished accommodation, study abroad programs and extracurricular activities in the destination, all to be paid separately. However, for the avoidance of doubt, we will only be responsible for the matters set out in Sections a. through e. above.

2. We retain all rights to reject the application of any person we deem unsuitable for our Program, at our own discretion.

3. In the event that a Participant decides to discontinue his/her Program after it has started but before it is due to end for any reason, no refund will be given.

4. If, for whatever reason, we have to cancel one of our Programs prior to the Participant starting the Program and for reasons which are in no way attributable to the Participant, or aren’t able to find a suitable host company match, a full refund of the Program fee including deposit will be given to the Participant. No compensation will be given by us for any other costs incurred in relation to the Program by the Participant or any other person.

5. In the event that a Participant is refused an appropriate visa by a government authority, a full refund of the Program fee minus deposit will be paid, but no compensation will be given by us for cancellation of flights or any other costs incurred by the Participant or any other person.

6. We reserve the right to change our suppliers and the format of our Program as and when necessary at our discretion and without requiring the consent of the Participant. We will however endeavor to provide as similar a Program as possible at all times.

7. We cannot accept any responsibility or liability for changes or cancellations to the Program under any of the following circumstances; war or threat of war, terrorism or threat of terrorism, fire, sickness, environmental or climate concerns, acts of government or local authority, or any other event or circumstance which amounts to a “force majeure” and in such cases no refund or compensation for any loss will be given to the Participant by us unless otherwise decided at our discretion.

8. It is your responsibility to be aware of any national holidays or other events in the destination country that may change the nature of your Program. While most companies operate on an 8-hour shift basis with two days off per week, we are not responsible for the working hours you will be assigned.

9. International flights are not included in the cost of any of our Programs. You must buy your own airplane tickets to fly to the destination country. We are not responsible to you for any damages or costs due to any action, negligence or event relating to the purchase or operation of flight tickets or flights. We are also not responsible for any costs or refunds due to changes, cancellations or delays in flights.

10. If the Participant should experience any problems whilst partaking in our Program, he/she must immediately inform us in writing by email with a clear explanation of the problem. In such an event, we will discuss the problem with the Participant and will discuss ways in which the problem can be solved.

In such a case, the internship providing company is within its rights to revoke the visa invitation and the Participant will be required to leave the country.

12. If the Participant wishes to terminate his/her placement prior to the end of the time stated in the offer letter for any reason, he/she must provide us with written notice, clearly stating the reasons for such a decision. No refund of Program fees will be made in this situation, and no other placement will be offered.

16. In situations where the Participant does not comply with the rules of the internship providing company or rules of our Program or the laws of the destination country government, we may cancel the Program of the Participant by notice to the Participant, and no refund will be granted to the Participant.

17. Participants will take full responsibility for their conduct at all times during the Program.

It is the participant’s responsibility to ensure they purchase personal liability insurance prior to the commencement of their internship.

21. Participants must inform us of any travel abroad or any other unavailability of passport for visa processing during the six weeks prior to starting our Program. We cannot be held responsible for delay or cancellation of program due to failure to inform us of such details.
