About the Scheme

The Overseas Internship Scheme (OIS) lasts from late May/early June till August for a period of 2.5 months during which students conduct their placement overseas. Apart from real work experience, OIS students also gain the valuable opportunity to appreciate life in a different culture and develop a global perspective. 

Support from industry and institutional partners

The host company / institution is expected to:

  • provide a training programme / research project relevant to the student’s major study.
  • assign a host supervisor to co-supervise the student with a CityU supervisor.
  • assist the student in seeking accommodation as appropriate.
