Visiting Student Intern Program
The Centre for Health Behaviours Research frequently accepts student interns year-round to work with our team for 1-6 months. Our strong collaborations with local and international partners have allowed our interns to obtain a truly hands-on research experience. Our interns have gained experience in each step of research including but not limited to literature reviews, grant submissions, fieldwork, data analysis, and journal submissions. Some of our past interns have also had the opportunity to work directly with local NGOs such as AIDS Concern and travel to Mainland China to observe different public health settings such as Shenzhen Center for Chronic Diseases and the Shanghai Health Education Institute for further learning.
Past interns include post-graduate students from Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine, Emory University Rollins School of Public Health, University of Southampton, Bangor University, and University of Birmingham.

To enhance further collaboration and strengthen the existing close partnerships with Universities in Mainland China and Taiwan, CUHK organizes a 7-week summer research placement program for Mainland and Taiwan students. Since 2008, the Office of Academic Links (China) (OALC) has coordinated this program every year with the support of various academic and research units from CUHK and Mainland China and Taiwan Universities. The program includes 7-weeks of research training, while also enjoying outings to some of Hong Kong’s must-see tourist destinations.
