Work experience in Asia

newIANext Step Connections (NSC) is a international education organization offering experiential learning and student employability programs in Asia since 2008.

Our Mission is to bridge the gap between the student and professional world by uniting students, universities and enterprises through collaborative and transformative experiential learning programs abroad.

We offer real world learning programs including global internships,  work experience in Asia, short-term university programs and student employability programs.

NSC is best-suited for students and young professionals looking to travel the world to build their skills in real work environments with an open heart to new experiences; those in search of diversity, of community, and of purpose.

As Canadian alumni Valerie Song – Founder of AVA, mentioned on her Internship in Shanghai travel blog:

“Keep an open mind. Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there. Try something new. It’s your start of something different.”

Why gaining work experience in Asia through NSC?

Asia is a region set to lead the world as it becomes an increasingly important engine of growth leading the world out of the worst recession in over half a century. On current trends, it is estimated that by 2030, Asia’s economy will be larger than that of the United States and European Union combined with the region’s share of world GDP swelling from a little under 30 percent closer to more than 40 percent. Within Asia, the AEC (ASEAN) will drive South East Asia as the future growth engine within Asia itself.

Located in Asia, NSC has built solid expertise and a strong network in this region of the world since 2008. We have been able to deliver quality programs with unmatched results, through our local bases in China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Indonesia, and Thailand, offering our customers with in-depth knowledge and strategic understanding of a growing region.

We are recognized by leading Institutions, and the international education industry as a true specialist in providing safe and quality educational programs to and within Asia. Since 2008, we have run programs for Western Sydney University, University of Southern California, University of Texas – Austin, National University of Singapore, Hamline University, Arizona State University, Providence College, Lingnan University, Chapman University and more.

Our programs aim at positively enhancing and transforming talents across the globe every year through our 4E model: Education, Enriched Experience, Entrepreneurship, Enlightenment.
