About the Scheme

Internship Services  >  Overseas Internship Scheme (OIS)  >  About the Scheme

The Overseas Internship Scheme (OIS) lasts from June till August for a period of 2.5 months during which students conduct their placement overseas. Apart from real work experience, OIS students also gain the valuable opportunity to appreciate life in a different culture and develop a global perspective. Our students have, in the past, been to North and Central America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Asia.

Support from industry and institutional partners

Co-op Centre has established partnership with institutions worldwide. Our working partners shall:

  • provide a training/ research project relevant to the student’s major study;
  • assign a mentor to co-supervise the student with a CityU supervisor;
  • assist the student in applying for University hostel, guest house, home stay or other kinds of safe accommodation
