Work Attachment and Internship Programme
First Year Diploma Programme (DP) students are encouraged to participate in the work attachment and internship programme at the end of the first year of their diploma programme.
Through the internship programme, the students are able to gain insights into the industry sectors and the characteristics of the work that they intend to pursue after university. This will enable them to connect their learning in the classroom with the internship experience. In addition, students can further use the internship programme to hone their communication, team-work and problem-solving skills.
The school provides a formal structure and support by connecting our students with companies offering work placements. In addition, the UC team works with the students to learn the lifelong skills like the writing of a CV, cover letter and interview techniques when applying for internships. The industry sectors which our students have taken internships with, are wide-ranging. Some of the companies and organisations where our students have served internships include hotels, law firms, media providers, freighting companies, financial companies, hospitals and healthcare providers. Our work attachment partners also offer opportunities to SISHK alumni who are looking for an internship during their university vacation or after they graduate from their internships.
If you would like to know more about the Work Attachment and Internship Programme for our students or offer an internship to our students, please contact Mr Anthony Fryer, Subject Head / Partnership and Career Guidance.
