Vacation Internships at Law

The Vacation Internship Programme provides students with opportunities to gain real-life work by applying their classroom learning and contributing to the work of the hiring organisations. Internships are not compulsory in NUS Law and no academic credit for internships will be awarded.

Students are encouraged to intern during the University Vacation Periods of May to August and December to January each year, but a few students also take on part-time internships during the semester (up to a maximum of 16 hours/week).

Internship applications are merit-based. Below are some guidelines and programmes that students can explore:

» NUS Law Overseas Internship Stipend (OIS)
» NUS Global Internship Award
