Since 2005, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University has introduced a mandatory component to all undergraduate degree programmes - Work-Integrated Education (WIE).
WIE refers to work-based learning experiences which take place in an organisational context relevant to a student’s future profession, or the development of generic skills that will be valuable in that profession. Students are required to complete at least 300 hours of internship work in order to graduate.
Every year, the School of Accounting and Finance organises the Spring Internship Programme (SIP) and the Summer Internship Programme (SUIP) in order to help students fulfill the 300-hour WIE requirement (100-hour from students admit in 2017 onwards). During the internship, our WIE partner organizations will provide “on-the-job” training opportunities to our students of the following degree programmes:
Through the training, our students will be equipped with valuable work experiences as well as necessary professional and generic skills for full-time employment upon graduation.
