IAPS runs a one-year-long student internship and is one of the most competitive internship programme on campus. Students of high calibre were selected from various schools to participate in this internship, which will train them in various life-long and research skills such as managing social media, website maintenance, video and photo taking, translating and transcribing, logistic management, interpersonal and leadership skills.
There are three departments which are responsible for different tasks:
- Welcome lunch of 2016-17 interns
- Team building picnic of 2015-16 interns
Hear from our interns
Three most important things I’ve obtained from IAPS internship are excellent guest speaker lectures, lifelong friends and working ability. IAPS offers a series of guest speaker lectures over a wide range of topics. IAPS interns are a big family. We work together and play together. Some of us still make video calls to share our lives. My three years in IAPS has taught me how to organise events, how to balance my work and study, how to coordinate with other people, and how to position myself in a leadership position.

Being here in IAPS has widened my horizon and further my understanding of the current affairs and also importance of the affairs in the Asia-Pacific region. Being an intern here has also given me the opportunity to develop my interpersonal and organisational skills through constant collaborations with the other interns in dealing with our works!

As an intern who has working in IAPS for one year, I feel so happy and proud to be one of the members of this efficient and lovely team. I do learn a lot more than I have imagined through getting alone with all my colleagues and scholars of IAPS. All the scholars are so erudite and humorous, they are also affable and modest. My colleagues are so generous, responsible and brilliant.
