These courses have been specially designed to give the best preparation to our students in pursuing their goals. GEM's aim is to promote transnational education in China and also offer local students an opportunity to obtain foreign degrees. We engage with industry and the professions in our teaching so our graduates can gain professional experience and are immediately able to put this knowledge into practice. Our courses are designed to be relevant to theworld of work, preparing graduates with transferable skills, which is one reason why our graduates within our GEM Group of Colleges have proven to be so successful in the job market. 100% of our pioneer group of graduates are employed or leave for further study within six months upon graduation.
All our courses at GEM International are designed to include transferable skills that are highly prized by employers: typically in computer literacy, group work, written and verbal communication, analysis and presentation. Even more highly prized are the work placements which many of our students complete as part of their course itself.

We provide links with global names in industry and our work placements scheme is a key reason why our graduates are successful once they enter the world of work.
