CGCSS aims at enriching students’ global exposure by

offering paid/non-paid workplace International Internships,

Career Exploration Programmes and other career learning experience outside Hong Kong. A wide variety of programmes and opportunities are provided in over 50 locations in the world under the Scheme.

WHY beyond Hong Kong?

Global mobility has become one of

the key attributes sought after by employers. Adding international work experience not only gains you global exposure, but also gives you an eye-catching CV which sets you apart in the job market. Making friends from all around the world helps you build your own network, leading to future career advancements and personal growth.


We are the matchmaker for students from any levels, any years,

any curriculums to an avenue possibly distinct from your majors.
