Maritime and Aviation Internship Scheme


To offer young generation an opportunity to have an early exposure to the wide spectrum of career opportunities in the aviation and maritime sectors so as to encourage them to join the sector after graduation, the Government would like to invite companies in the aviation and maritime sectors to participate in the Internship Scheme to offer intern places during summer vacation.


This initiative is open to non-final year full time local students* from any undergraduate or sub-degree programmes of the eight University Grants Committee (UGC)-funded education institutions, Hang Seng Management College, Hong Kong Shue Yan University, the Open University of Hong Kong and the Vocational Training Council.
