Application Procedures

Eligible undergraduate students interested in participating in the Summer Internship Programme (“SIP”) should complete an online Application Portal and upload a curriculum vitae (“CV”) and additional supporting documents required by Participating Employers (“PE”s)  Internships cannot and will not commence unless the HKSI Institute has completed the verification process with respect to the students concerned. Specifically, HKSI Institute will check the eligibility of selected students against the original documents provided by the student interns. All verification should be done and confirmed by HKSI Institute prior to the commencement of internship. Any internship without confirmation from HKSI Institute will not be eligible for SIP subsidy under the WAM Pilot Programme.


Students should familiarise themselves with the information on Internship Positions and think carefully the type of exposure they wish to acquire before deciding on which position(s) to apply, giving due consideration to the time/effort that they are able to commit before deciding how many internship positions offered by the Participating Employers (“PEs”) to take up in the end.
