Our Work Study Programme (WSP) will be held in the summer of every year, in the belief that combining course work and industrial training will narrow the gap between academic training and practical training. Students can participate in the Work Study Program on a voluntary basis, one year before their final year of study. Each participant is required to spend about one year as a full-time employee in a selected local company, engaging in Information Technology, Telecommunications, and Application Services. During the one-year internship period, students will be employed as a contract staff of the company and entitled to a monthly salary and subjected to the protection of the labour ordinance of the HKSAR. The student will continue his/her final year of study after the internship.
