Internship courses

Guidelines for Students

To enhance students’ participation in self-solicited internships, four new internship courses (0 credit) were introduced to undergraduate students from College of Science, with implementation from Summer Term 2021.

This course is designed to enhance and enrich students’ educational experience by integrating the academic component of their degree programme with the practical workplace experience gained at the internship site in local and/or international contexts. The course provides an opportunity for students to apply theories, practices, and skills in the workplace setting, and to critically reflect on the efficacy of the knowledge learnt in the classroom. Students work at their host organisations for a minimum of 2 weeks (full-time) or 75 hours (part-time).
