Australia Internship Programme

"It widened my horizons to different knowledge."

YIM Man Yi, Yolanda (Bachelor Degree of Arts (Hons)in Liberal and Cultural Studies, Year 3)

I worked as an intern at a museum in Sydney. I performed a wide range of duties, such as handling historic specimens, taking and scanning photos, uploading information to the database, preparing leaflets for events and transcribing historic documents. I gained a lot of experience in maintaining collections through taking up these tasks. Besides, I also learnt more about the daily operations of a museum. My communication skills have been greatly improved as I had chances to talk to colleagues & visitors during my stay. I feel very grateful to work here as it widened my horizons to different knowledge. I will never forget the fruitful days which I spent in Sydney.
