Internship Programme for undergraduates (CAH4599)

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 arranges 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.


Period and Duration

Credit-bearing programme
3 credit units, Full-time/Part-time,
A minimum of 4 weeks/ 150 work hours
(3/6/2024 – 16/8/2024)



The student interns are selected from students who are enrolled in BACHIS with stream declaration.


Quality Assurance

Quality is assured because:

  • Initial screening by experienced teachers of CAH
  • Compulsory pre-internship training particularly on business ethics and etiquette and interpersonal communication skills provided by CityU
  • Performance of the students will be jointly assessed by CityU and the internship partner
  • Post-internship meeting with students enables CAH to review the suitability of internship partners for future selection
