Empowering students to reach their full potential

Experience work in Asia. Gain skills and build a global network

Experience work experience in Asia

Next Step Connections (NSC) is a global education organization. We bridge the academic and professional world by bringing together talents, businesses and universities through connectivity, collaboration and transformation for a better inclusive global economic community.

NSC empowers students to reach their full potential through global internship programs and work experience in Asia, short-term university programs since 2008.

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 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.
