Shanghai - Global Internships

Global Internship Programme

Work abroad

Work and experience life abroad

For summer 2019, LJMU will be sending students on two-month internships in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam and Melbourne, Australia. The scheme covers flights, accommodation, insurance, work experience, networking events and might include trips or social activities too. Placements are available in selected sectors and students will need to demonstrate their open-minded and committed approach to making the most of this prestigious opportunity.

All full-time level 4 and 5 students who have not previously taken part in the Asia Internship Programme can apply for the Global Internship Programme.

Programme dates

Programme dates in Ho Chi Min City and Melbourne are yet to be confirmed. They will most likely take place during July and August.

Application and selection

Each faculty will assess applications. Shortlisted candidates will be invited to a selection event where there will be group activities and short interviews to determine students’ suitability and commitment to the scheme.

Applications are now closed. If you are considering or have secured yourself a work placement in Europe over the summer you can find out more about European opportunities or get in touch with us at

Julia - Asia internships

This has definitely been the most independent and enriching experience that I have ever done and I am so grateful that I have completed this internship…I feel that I gained valuable work experience as well as learning so much about another culture that is so different from my own.
