As an initiative of the Global Encounters Alumni Association, the Global Encounters Internship Programme – inaugurated in 2019 – exists to assist alumni on their trajectories towards a life characterized by competent leadership, pluralistic understanding, and humanity-driven action. Each year, we encourage our alumni to engage in internships to promote their academic, professional, social, and personal development. To assist in this process, we have unique opportunities exclusively for GE alumni to assist them in experiential learning.

Objectives of the Alumni Internship Programme

  1. To provide alumni with a high-quality opportunity for experiential education;
  2. To allow alumni to participate in, at some level, service to humanity;
  3. To broaden the life experience and breadth of knowledge of participating alumni;
  4. To gain meaningful work experience; and
  5. To promote an appreciation of diversity – be it of cultures, people, or professional sectors.
