Work-Integrated Education (WIE) refers to work-based learning experiences where students learn to connect classroom theory with practical workplace applications through on-the-job work placements in Hong Kong, Mainland China, or overseas. It aims to enhance students’ professional competencies and all-roundedness during their training in the workplace.

Since 2005, WIE has been introduced as a mandatory component of all undergraduate degree programmes. For students admitted in 2017/2018 intake cohort onwards, they are required to complete at least 100 hours of internship so as to be eligible for graduation.

Through the training, our students will be equipped with valuable work experiences as well as necessary professional and generic skills for full-time employment upon graduation.

  • Apply knowledge and skills learnt in the classroom to real work situations
  • Have a better understanding of the workplace philosophy
  • Appreciate the role of languages in professional workplaces
  • Enhance their generic skills and nurture their personal development
  • Identify their career interests and prepare for future employment


The internship can be taken place in Hong Kong, Mainland China or overseas.

  1. Internship sourced by students (Self-sourced): All year round
  2. Internship sourced by Careers and Placement Section (CPS) of Student Affairs Office (CPS-sourced): All year round
  3. Internship sourced by School of Accounting and Finance (AF-sourced):
    - Spring Internship Programme (SIP): Full-time (run from January to April)*
    - Summer Internship Programme (SUIP): Full-time or Part-time (run from June to August)


  • Internship in Hong Kong: Students are released from day-time study and they are required to study only two subjects on weekdays evenings or on Saturdays during the internship period.
  • Internship in Mainland China or overseas: Students are completely released from their studies for a whole semester during the internship period.
