We arrange non-credit bearing local and non-local internship programs for students.

Objective: by participating in internship, students will be able to

  • explore real work environment in person and increase the understanding of workplace culture
  • enrich work and life experiences
  • put academic knowledge into practice
  • enhance self-esteem, maturity, and interpersonal skills
  • establish positive contacts with prospective employers

Internship period: June to August (about 3 months).

Non-local internship program:
In the past years, students successfully participated in internship programs organized in England, Germany, Spain and United States during summer break. Those non-local internship programs are usually unpaid and participating students are responsible for the program fee and living cost during the internship period.

Financial support:
In order to encourage students to participate in internship outside Macao, Student Affairs Office set up an internship grant to provide funding for participating students. The application details will be announced on UM students’ e-bulletin board and information sessions.

Eligibility:
UM non-final year students
