NUS-ISS Graduate Internship Programme


Our student internships last between 5-months to 1 year, depending on the programmes and study format. The substantial time spent with companies ensures depth of experience and benefit for both our students and the companies they work for. This allows students to apply what they have learnt in their coursework to real-life work environments, and develop deeper industry insights as well as maturity for their future careers. Through this, companies tap on trained and motivated talents to fulfill the resource needs of the organisation.

      The most impressive quality of the interns is their versatility. Many of them are asked to pick up new skills, new computing languages as they embarked on their internship programme. Grounded in the skills that they have learnt from their Graduate Diploma programme, many of them excelled in displaying resourcefulness and initiative by picking up other skill sets required.
