Here are the things you will go through if you apply for GEIP:
Application is open. Apply online by 5 May 2019 Sunday, 2359hr.
*Refer to our sample resume
**Provided you pass all interviews and your visa is approved.
There are two rounds of application for April and October semesters. You should be in one of the categories below.
|April||For students taking internship in 3.1||Current Year 2.2 students|
|October||For students taking internship in 3.2||Current Year 3.1 students|
All eligible students are welcome to apply for GEIP. If you're willing to work (hard) overseas for 6 months, have a good attitude, show initiative/ creativity or have started your own interest venture, business etc., you may be one of our several interns flying overseas to work!
GEIP replaces your school internship in 3.1 or 3.2.
You will still submit your academic internship report to your internship supervisor. For the Young Talent Programme (YTP) report, you will submit it to GIA.
While we seek to ensure you are comfortable in the country you are placed in, GIA and our partner company make the final decision. You will be assessed whether you are a fit for the company and what they require in an intern. Shortlisted applicants need to go through a first round of interview with GIA. This is followed by interviews with the overseas companies GIA has allocated you tentatively based on your skillsets and soft skills displayed at the first round of interview.
(Note: GIA's tentative allocation of students to a country/ company does NOT equal a confirmed placement. You still have to go through interviews with the overseas company).
GEIP is heavily subsidised. Depending on the city and company you will intern at, the structures will differ. More details will be provided once you are confirmed in the programme. You may also be eligible for YTP funding if your minimum GPA overall is 2.5 and above.
PSEA cannot be used to support your expenses for GEIP. Refer to question 5.
You will be given a monthly allowance that is sufficient for the duration of your overseas internship. Every city has different living standards and each company pays interns different allowance rates. Generally, you will be provided allowance that covers your daily living expenses. Visa, flight and housing allowance will be covered by GIA. In short, your monthly allowance is city-specific.
To work overseas for GEIP, you would need to pass all modules for that current semester.
You will not be eligible for GEIP.
Yes, you are still eligible for GEIP.
GEIP is open for application to all students who are Singaporeans and Singapore Permanent Residents. See question 1 for more on this.
