What are Internships? And why are they important?

Internship is a great way for you to gain work experience, try out a new field, build your professional network and get a head start in your job search after graduation! It is definitely something you should consider doing while you are at HKUST.

  • Type of Internships

    Internships can be paid or unpaid and may take various forms:
    - part-time during the term;
    - full-time during the term (in which case you would apply for study leave)
    - full-time during a winter or summer break.

  • Internship Opportunities

    Most internships are offered directly from individual employers as “direct-hire” opportunities and these “direct-hire” internship opportunities targeting HKUST students can be found on our HKUST-exclusive Job Board. Check them out! In addition, JIJIS is also a great source for other internships (for all university students in Hong Kong)

    Meanwhile, there are also other program-based internships, generally offered by third-party organizers. These internship programs cover local, overseas, mainland and virtual opportunities. These opportunities offer a unique opportunity for you to gain work experience outside of Hong Kong, as well as experience in a new field which you otherwise might find it hard to access through “direct-hire”. Highly recommended especially for our year 1 and year 2 undergraduate students! Check them out below!
