Cultural immersion & community in Hong Kong
The Hong Kong Experience
Interning abroad is a unique opportunity to become part of a vibrant international community of students and professionals from every corner of the globe. Interns in Hong Kong have access to unparalleled networking opportunities with professionals in their field, from both Hong Kong and the rest of the world. These connections are truly invaluable, and are a key part of why most of our alumni go straight into full-time employment after completing their internship. Of course, the friendships you make while interning abroad are equally impactful. The bonds you create while traveling and exploring Hong Kong together can last a lifetime!
Our full-time team in Hong Kong know the city inside out and will show you the best of it. The Hong Kong internship program includes the following events:
Mini-Vegas of Asia day trip
Tai O Fishing Village tour
Dinner and a view on The Peak
Our full-time team in Hong Kong will organize your airport pick-up when you arrive in Hong Kong as well as your airport drop-off at the end of your internship. They will also provide a thorough welcome orientation to help you settle into this city and feel at ease. They are also available throughout your internship should you need anything at all, from restaurant recommendations to internship advice.
We also partner with Talkspace to provide all our participants with fully anonymous access to a licensed online therapist for up to 3 months. This ensures you’ll always have someone to talk to when adjusting to life in your new city.
Optional Language study
More people speak Chinese than any other language in the world. We partner with a leading Chinese language school in Hong Kong, which offers a wide range of general and business Mandarin / Cantonese courses from foundation to advanced levels.
Regular (Group) Course
This is perfect if you have an interest in picking up a second language in a fun environment. You will be placed in a small group and attend 20 hours of lessons – 2 hours per class, and you can attend 1 or 2 classes per week according to your schedule. Upon completion of this course, you will be familiar with the fundamental pronunciation, identify basic sentences and expressions and communicate in simple dialogues with Chinese speakers in different daily life contexts.
This will be a better choice if you wish to focus on particular areas of the language and receive lessons that are more tailored to your advanced level.
