China Pre-Departure Orientation
The Ohio State University offers a Pre-Departure Orientation for new Chinese students who have been accepted and have paid their acceptance fee. The Pre-Departure Orientation offers an opportunity for future students, and their families, to learn more about college life, meet other Ohio State students and university staff and learn important information before traveling to the United States.
The Pre-Departure Orientation is a two-day program offered in Shanghai and Beijing. Students can choose one of the four sessions available, and each student can register themselves and two guests. Attending the orientation with family is a great way to build a foundation for success at Ohio State.

The Undergraduate Research Office and the Office of Research provide numerous opportunities to support research about and in China.
Opportunities for international internships are available through the Fisher College of Business.
The China Gateway provides support to students interested in gaining work experience in China.
The China Gateway has established a career resource center that extends career services beyond the United States. The service center aims to assist Ohio State students and alumni in exploring career opportunities in China and better engage corporate partners for multifaceted collaborations.
One example of career services includes the China Career Fair that provides a platform to connect employers with Ohio State students and alumni since 2016. In collaboration with dozens of prestigious American Universities’ China offices and more than 100 corporate partners, this event not only benefits our students, but also improves Ohio State’s brand as a global university.
