Student Exchange Programmes

In 2011/12, sixteen marketing students went on exchange for one semester in universities

in Canada, Demark, Sweden, Germany, UK, France, Netherlands, Singapore and China.

Janelleh: “An Exchange Internship is more than Travelling! “

Tang Wing Yan Janelleh, Jelly

(Year 3)

I was glad to have a chance to go to

Germany for an exchange internship for a

cultural project in the summer of 2011. I

worked at a youth center and a summer

camp for almost 2 months, and my duty was

to help organize different activities about

Hong Kong’s culture and a Global Village

event. As I was travelling outside Asia for

the first time in my life, I was so excited. At

the same time, I was a bit nervous because I

was going all this way to Germany alone.

But I think it was a good time for me to

learn to be independent. So I said to myself,

‘If I think I can, I can!’ It’s an old saying but it

works when I dare to believe it. With that

trust in myself, I was able to take good care

of myself throughout the whole journey.

The project that I was working on was

another challenge, because I had to work

with 12 other interns from different

countries, including Brazil, Egypt, France,

Ghana, Hungary, India, Poland, Russia,

Taiwan, Turkey, U.S.A., Vietnam, and of

course Germany as well. By working with

each other, we developed a better

understanding of different cultures. What is

more, mutual trust and friendship was

fostered among us gradually. This gave me

an amazing opportunity for me to

experience how to work with people with

different cultural backgrounds in the real

world.

Compared to travelling, I think this exchange

internship gives me a longer time to

experience the local culture and to get along

with people from different countries. It is

not only a good chance for me to explore

the world, but it also has a positive impact

on my personal development. So I

encourage my fellow classmates to grasp

every opportunity to go for an exchange

program, no matter an academic or

internship one. I believe it will be a very

memorable and impactful experience for

you.
