An immersive experience of China through our established educational programmes

Lovvol has enabled hundreds of UK and US university students to volunteer at summer schools across China since 2006

Our unique programmes allow students to engage with Chinese culture while inspiring Chinese children to learn English


Updates to LOVVOL programmes in 2020

Statement on Covid-19 (Volunteering Programmes 2020)


In line with current travel recommendations from FCO, and the ongoing restrictions and recommendations from the UK Government and Chinese Governments regarding the Covid-19 (coronavirus) outbreak, we feel it would only be responsible of us to suspend our programmes for the 2020 Summer period.

Whilst we understand that this may cause disappointment to those who have already interviewed with LOVVOL, we have a responsibility to protect the wellbeing of all staff, volunteers and partners; as well as an obligation to follow the recommended courses of action including social distancing which is currently being implemented.

We greatly hope that the situation is changed by July 2020, however we cannot expect our volunteers or programme partners to continue to plan for a summer with such uncertain parameters. We apologise for any disappointment that this hiatus may cause, but we strongly feel that this is the best decision for all partners and volunteers.

For students who have already been accepted onto LOVVOL programmes for 2020, we would like to reassure you that your application will automatically be transferred to Summer 2021. We will be in touch later this year to confirm your interest and discuss your placement. Should you have any questions, please get in touch and our team would be happy to advise you.

Many thanks for your support,

The LOVVOL Team.

Lovvol Facts

Years of Experience



Past Ambassadors

I had the most amazing summer in China. The organisation was fantastic and it was great to be able to teach with a couple of classes throughout the week, and join in the activities with them throughout the day as well. Staff and local coordinators are very caring, responsible and generous!
Sam Jee

2007 Ambassador, University of Manchester

Working as a teacher in China was an amazing and interesting experience. I really felt like I was making a difference to the children’s futures while having fun at the same time. The school is in a beautiful city with lots of things to see nearby, especially the massive fireworks over the river every Saturday evening!
Emma Watkins

2012 Ambassador, University of Maryland

It’s such a fun and rewarding experience that I had to go back again. This experience has confirmed to me that I want to go into education in the future. The best thing about my experience in China has been getting to meet new people, from China, UK and other countries.
