Why Virtual Overseas Internship?

Having internship at a company in a foreign country is a great advantage on your job application. According to the survey by National Association of Colleges and Employers in 2021, it found that internship experience is the most important attribute that employers look for when evaluating graduates to hire.

However, the ability to relocate or travel abroad is only accessible due to consideration of cost, limited time, government and immigration policies. Nevertheless, virtual overseas internships can overcome the challenges mentioned above.



  • Virtual Overseas Internship allows you to gain the work experience you desire, in a flexible environment that is accessible. You are able to work from home and yet encounter working in overseas while minimize the expense on travel and housing for internships aboard. 


  • The up-to-date communication technology is used for virtual meetings and supervision at work, you are able to experience this advanced work readiness learning environment. 


  • EdUHK provides subsidy and successful application in BOTH Global Learning Enhancement Fund and Allowance (with the fulfilment of selection criteria), you may have a chance of obtaining a FREE Virtual Overseas Internship (for program fees less than HKD 5,000) or the maximum student payment is HKD 900 (for program fees up to HKD 6,800), while earning all the benefits of the Virtual Overseas Internship program.
