Professional Internship Programme

Aims of the Internship Programme

Striving for excellence in “appliable” scholarship and teaching, The Department of Chinese and History (CAH) continues to establish links with the community. Our Internship Programme assists students to arrange an institutional sponsor-based industry placement which provides real life working experience with leading organisations in local and/or international contexts for a period of full-time or part-time employment. With placements in public or private sectors, students are expected to gain in-depth and practical understanding of the professional contexts in which they may apply their related knowledge and skills.
