The Internship scheme are inviting applications for internship placements who will work during part of the period between October 2022 to April 2023.
Many music department graduates have benefitted from internship opportunities arranged by the Department during their studies. They were able to serve as interns in dynamic music /arts orgaizations and got to know first-hand the work of music practitioners (often in line with their career aspirations). Not only have they learned practical skills and broadened their outlook through the internships, their CV is also enriched by this experience. Internship expereince are treasured by most employers and often serves as one of the recruitment considerations.
In 2022/23, we are pleased that seven organizations are offering internship placements to CUHK music undergraduates.
