All undergraduate students from all disciplines and all years are welcome to apply.
To support students' personal and career development, we provide subsidies for students to participate in overseas internship programmes. Although the subsidy may not be enough to cover the full programme fee and expenses, we hope it would be a good encouragement to students in venturing out of Hong Kong and Asia, and see the world!

To apply for the subsidy, you must have received an internship offer from any one of the above internship programmes. You will then be invited to apply for the subsidy by SSC. Please also take note that your application might not be successful if you have any outstanding payment with the University and that your CGPA results are unsatisfactory. Students who are being suspended, on disciplinary hearing, or on academic probation, will not be eligible to apply for the subsidy. SSC has sole discretion to determine your subsidy application result.
We also wish to remind students that the subsidy received from SSC would not be enough to finance all the costs involved in joining overseas internship. Students are advised to plan your budget carefully and enquire all costs that would be involved. For subsidy, SSC normally will process in April after students have secured internship offers and their required visas. So if your internship programme requires you to pay the full programme fee earlier than April, you should have enough funds before April to settle payment.
