Maritime and Aviation Internship Scheme (Maritime)


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 two sectors after graduation, the HKSAR Government established 'Maritime and Aviation Internship Scheme' in 2014 to invite companies in the aviation and maritime sectors to offer intern places.


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, the Hang Seng University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong Shue Yan University, Hong Kong Metropolitan University and the Vocational Training Council.
