Nurture your growth with Huawei’s Seeds of the Future programme

Interested in technical change? Looking to grow your knowledge, skills, and experience to improve your employability and land a graduate job in tech? Ready to experience work in China?


Then apply for Huawei’s Seeds of the Future programme and travel to China in summer 2020! You’ll receive technical training, a trip of a lifetime, and join the 250 programme graduates who’ve developed and thrived through completing Seeds of the Future.


The programme:

Get ready to pack your bags, because Huawei’s taking UK students on a four-week trip to China!


Starting in July 2020, successful applicants will fly to Beijing to practice Mandarin and learn about China’s rich culture and history. The next stop is Shenzhen, for the chance to learn about Huawei’s products and receive technical training from industry experts.

At King’s Careers & Employability, we recognise that your graduate employability rests on what you do during your time at university, whether that’s developing your industry knowledge, attributes, working on your skills, or getting practical experience.

This programme will enable you to develop your technical knowledge, your practical experience, and soft skills, such as networking, communication, and resilience.


Huawei will cover all visa, travel and accommodation costs, and provide a living allowance whilst in China.
