College of Arts students can apply for an internship at the University Museum and Art Gallery, The University of Hong Kong, which houses world-renowned collections of Chinese art and archaeology.

We especially encourage students with backgrounds in Art History, Museum Studies, Information Studies or Archaeology to apply.

Internship projects will be tailor-made depending on student interest and course requirements and may focus on curatorial training and project-related research or education and outreach. Internship projects will focus on the museum’s permanent collections or temporary exhibitions.
