Overview

Since 2005, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University has introduced a mandatory component to all undergraduate degree programmes - Work-Integrated Education (WIE).

WIE refers to work-based learning experiences which take place in an organisational context relevant to a student’s future profession, or the development of generic skills that will be valuable in that profession. Students are required to complete at least 100 hours of internship work in order to graduate.


Every year, the School of Accounting and Finance organises the Spring Internship Programme (SIP) and the Summer Internship Programme (SUIP) in order to help students fulfil the 100-hour WIE requirement (300-hour for students admitted before 2017/18). During the internship, our WIE partner organisations will provide “on-the-job” training opportunities to our students of the following degree programmes:

  • BBA(Hons) in Accountancy
  • BBA(Hons) in Accounting and Finance
  • BBA(Hons) in Financial Services

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; and
  • identify their career interests and prepare for future employment.
