The unit bridges and extends the classroom knowledge and the real working environments. It provides an extended intensive period where a realistic and comprehensive understanding of the complexity of professional settings can be experienced. Students are required to extend their engagement in everyday workplace activity where they can examine theories and practices, and refine their own developing understanding of professional practice. The internship extension is a tangible link between the university and the workplace and benefits graduate employability.

This unit is co-taught with 10152 Information Sciences Internship (Extended) (UG).
