The internship contract is a document signed by interns, the internship coordinator at HKU, and a responsible party at our partner institutions, setting out the obligations of all parties e.g. the internship provider sets out the tasks you will be given, and you undertake to attend regularly and discharge them professionally.

Some elements e.g. the 80 hour cap on total work hours, are common to all contracts. But as each internship is different, the contracts will also differ in setting out your tasks.

To ensure that the internship goes according to plan, your internship coordinator will also require you to make a log of hours worked, and provide feedback over the course of the internship, and will also remain in contact with your internship provider.
