“Education-plus” Internship Programme is a pilot programme to give our students the opportunity to work in prestigious corporations and NGOs so that they can apply concepts, knowledge, skills and methodologies learnt in specific and real-world settings. The programme also aims to
- enrich students’ learning beyond the normal scopes by encompassing a richer variety of learning opportunities and building students’ capacity across multiple disciplines;
- provide students with cross-disciplinary experiential learning opportunities to apply entrepreneurial and innovative skills in a Professional Authentic Context; and
