Note to All Internship Programme Applicants: from 14 Jan 2022 onwards, a new prerequisite Pre-Internship Training Programme (PTP) has been introduced. Undergraduate students who are considering to apply for internship programmes (local, non-local or virtual) administered by OSA or internship subsidies provided by OSA, must complete the PTP.
Internship programmes are highly recommended to students who wish to explore their career interests, upgrade their personal profile, and obtain insight in their preferred career choices prior to graduation. Overseas and mainland internship programmes enables students to broaden their global perspectives through practical work exposure outside Hong Kong. They can also develop an open attitude towards cultural differences and enhance global awareness as well as language proficiency; whereas local internship provides opportunities for students to be exposed to the local dynamic working environment. Subsidies will be provided to eligible students, including both local and international students from low and lower-middle income countries, selected for these programmes.
With local work experience, students can enrich their professional knowledge and generic skills in the workplace and establish a good network with associates and professionals. Internship experiences prior to graduation will strengthen students' overall profile and employability.
