Internship Timeline

September / October and January

Internship briefing
(for 3rd year students only)

First briefing: September / October (semester 1)
Second briefing: January (semester 2)

Emails will be sent to all 3rd year students closer to the date of briefing, please keep a lookout for this email in your NTU inbox ! It is advisable that you try to attend at least one of the two briefings.

December / January

Health & Safety quiz

Email notifications will be sent to all 3rd year students from the Career and Attachment office around late December or early January to take a compulsory health & safety quiz before you can gain access to enroll into the internship programme and view the database of companies. If you miss this this deadline, please email CAO Ms Jenny Lim at and copy ADM Internship Coordinator at citing reasons and we will advise accordingly.

Early February

Viewing of ADM database of companies

The database of companies is usually available to view only in early February. This is because we need to collate as many of them as possible closer to the date of the internship period. If you did not take the compulsory health & safety quiz mentioned above, you will be unable to access the database.

Do note that students have up to 5 choices of companies that they can apply and we would encourage students to use up all 5 choices. This is because there are chances that you may not be called up for an interview if you apply only 1 or 2 companies and it can happen to anyone. In this case, you will have to go through a round 2 or even round 3 application. It is therefore advisable that you use up all the options that you are provided in the first round of application.

For more information on the ADM database of companies, please check this site.

March / Recess week

Shortlisting for interviews by companies you applied

This will usually happen in early March or during your one week recess break in March. You will want your portfolio to be ready by this time.

31st March

Self-sourcing deadline

The deadline for those who are doing self-source should note that the self-source form submission deadline is 31st March.  Some flexibility can be granted upon valid circumstantial reasons.
