Live, Learn and Intern in China (LLIC), through the University of Hong Kong

The LLIC programme consists of a 1-week introductory course in Hong Kong, and a subsequent 9-week internship placement in China. The purpose of the programme is to provide opportunities for students to experience working in Asia, to increase their understanding of Chinese society and to extend their professional and personal network in Hong Kong and China. The programme is open to both overseas participant and to HKU students, and is funded by the Victor and William Fung Foundation.

Apart from gaining experience in different industries through internship, the aim is also that HKU students will also benefit from working alongside overseas participants from top-tier universities. Companies participating in this programme range from small to medium enterprises, in varying industries from finance/accounting and non-profit to design and commercial companies.
