City University of Hong Kong

Introduction

To better consolidate students' work-based learning experience and to enhance their professional and personal development on campus, a Task Force chaired by the Vice-President (Student Affairs) has conducted a review of the On-campus Service-learning Scheme (OSS) in October 2011 and has recommended the introduction of two new schemes, namely the Campus Internship Scheme (CIS) and the Campus Work Scheme (CWS), for implementation on 1st July 2012 to replace the OSS.

Starting from 1 July 2020, CWS will cease to be implemented so that the hiring and management of student helpers will be decentralized for the Recruiting Units, while CLC will continue to manage CIS.

All enquiries on CIS and suggestions may be forwarded directly to the Career and Leadership Centre via email at clc.careercentre@cityu.edu.hk.
