LLIC 2019 Application – for Overseas Students

As LLIC involves several organisations, some of the details and dates are subject to change. We will notify applicants of updated information or any changes as early as possible.

Application Deadline (1st Round):    February 28, 2019 (HKT 23:59)

Application Deadline (2nd Round):   April 10, 2019 (HKT 23:59)

*Internship placements will be offered on a rolling basis to 1st round applicants, with any remaining places offered to 2nd round applicants - you are therefore advised to apply as early as possible since places are limited.

- We have already received a large number of applications in the 1st round for a very limited number of funded places, so it has been highly competitive this year with the majority of applications from global top tier universities, and most places already filled.
- In order to offer this opportunity to as many eligible applicants as possible, we have created extra places this year on a very similar programme named Learn, Live & Intern in Asia (LLIA). The only difference is LLIA is self-funded but you are very welcome to seek funding from your university or other sponsoring organisations.
- This year LLIA will also consist of 1 week training at HKU with LLIC participants & 7 weeks of Internship in Shanghai in very similar companies.
- You can consider applying separately online via the HKUSI applications system for LLIA instead: https://aal.hku.hk/summerinstitute/programme/llia2019/
