Students may choose to undertake internships during the course of their studies if the time commitment does not clash with any of their classes.
For non-local students who wish to find an internship, you may engage in:
- Part-time on-campus employment offered by the University, for a maximum of 20 hours per week;
- A summer job from 1st June to 31st August (both dates inclusive) (only applicable to students who are doing their degrees for 2 years, and whose applications for such extension of study have been approved); and/or
- Study/ curriculum-related internship for one-third of the normal duration of the programme.
In order to participate in study/ curriculum-related internships in Hong Kong, non-local students must have a No Objection Letter (NOL) issued by the Hong Kong Immigration Department and an endorsement (also known as a supporting letter) from HKU Business School. In order to apply for the endorsement, the student must have received an internship offer and an official contract from a well-established company.
Students can find information on internships offered by partnering companies on the School's Career Portal and HKU Cedars’ Job Board (both accessible by students and staff only). Students can also find internship opportunities on other job search platforms.
